Yellow Fin Seafood and Restaurant

Our first dinner in Davao was at a newly opened branch of Yellow Fin Seafood and Restaurant in Lanang.  It's located at the back of the Jetti gasoline station in front of the new SM mall.  My parents are fans of this place ever since they tried their Adobo Tuna Buntot.  They were hooked! :)

To warm up the tummy, we had the Imbao (clam soup).  Salt-water clams are cooked in a broth flavored with ginger, lemongrass and onion leaves. This dish made me look forward to the other food we're having that night.

As always, no handaan (celebration/party) will be complete without any pancit (noodle dish).  This one was just ok.  Nothing really remarkable but it wasn't a letdown either.

The greaseless fried chicken is also a specialty of Yellow Fin.  They taste really really good! For me, it's at par with the fried chicken of fast food chains popping here and there in the metro. This is a fab dish, both for the young and old. :D

I wasn't able to try the Rellenong Bangus but I didn't hear any complaints from anyone so I guess this was ok.

My tot loved the Native Tinolang Manok.  She had several bowls of it with rice. As for the Tuna Laing, it was a lovely combination of the healthy fish meat enveloped by the taro leaves simmered in coconut milk.

The house specialty was the highlight of the dinner. The tuna buntot (tail) is deep fried then simmered in soy sauce, vinegar and spices. It's crispy in the outside and the meat is oh-so-divine! Now I know why this is the star of Yellow Fin.  It's really a must try!
