Ensaladang Mangga + Krispy Hito

We have been to Funnside Ningnangan several times and we loved our dining experience each time. Even the little man enjoyed it, in fact, and listed the restaurant as one of his favorites. If you are looking for fresh and tasty, yet affordable, seafood fare, then there is no better place to be!

For one, you will definitely love the homey ambiance of their spacious restaurant. The place is like a huge nipa hut and there are enough number of tables for their many patrons. It is always packed with people, especially if you venture here during lunch or dinner time. There is available Wi-Fi and flatscreen tellies are mounted on walls for the diners’ entertainment.

Funnside Ningnangan is a restaurant that adapted the dampa or paluto style, where you can choose from a wide selection of fresh seafood specials like mussels, an assortment of fishes like bangus, tilapia, and hito, crabs, squid, and shrimps, and cook them into your favorite scrumptious dishes, mostly grilled, but they also do buttered shrimps and tempura, as well as bulalo and sinigang. They also have a mixture of fresh meat products like steak, chicken, and pork. You can even choose from a mixed bag of fresh veggies for your sides or appetizers. All these in affordable prices, too!

My little foodie excited to sample Funnside Ningnangan’s bulalo

Since the little man is not yet into seafood, our usual order when we visit the place is one of his favorite dishes, bulalo. I particularly liked their version because it has corn. I usually do not include this when I cook this dish at home because Jared complains that it tastes different.

For the grown-ups, we’d basically order anything that catches our fancy during each visit. So far, we’ve already tried their buttered shrimp {my favorite!}, grilled squid, and crispy fried hito. We have also tried their ensaladang mangga with sliced onions and tomatoes paired with shrimp paste!. They also offer local desserts, like leche flan and ube, but I have yet to sample those.

It is always a gastronomical experience each time we visit Funnside Ningnangan and we are sure to visit again in the future. If you ever find yourself in Bulacan, make sure to check out this grill restaurant in Guiguinto. And while you’re at it, you might also want to check out this ev speakers at musiciansfriend.com. 😉
