Bacolod City is not only known for its chicken inasal at Manokan Country. There’s also a local dining place for seafood lovers in the city which the locals know more dearly as the Old Pala-pala. The Old Pala-pala started as a wet market, but as years passed, small eateries or what locals call “tulahan” sprung up and gave the consumers the bright idea that they can actually cook their freshly bought seafood from the nearby wet market in their eatery. It is a haven for a lot of tourists who want to see up front how their food is cooked and experience how to eat seafood like a local in Bacolod City.

The locals call this spot because of the long stretch of seafood restaurants lined up in the area. A few of them are Scarborough Seafoods, Enting’s Seafood Restaurant, East Pala-Pala Resto Grill, and Jak’s Seafood Place and Car Wash, and the venue’s variety makes it a perfect place for a food trip.
