Probably one of the most visited spots in the whole of Mactan Island is the seafood district in Baranggay Mactan. Referred to simply as ‘SuTuKil’, the network of restaurants and souvenir shops sits right next to the Mactan Shrine where Lapu-Lapu’s monument stands and where the Bahug-Bahug reenactment is held every year.
SuTuKil stands for ‘Sugba’ Tuwa’ and ‘Kilaw’. Not Shoot To Kill. LOL. Sugba means ‘to grill’ or ‘grilled’. Tuwa refers to Tinuwa – seafood soup with a strong sour taste. Kilaw refers to a seafood dish made up of onions, sili, ginger and raw fish (or any edible seaweeds) marinated in vinegar.
The SuTuKil restaurants sit right next to the beach. So you get a nice view of the beach while you fill your tummy.
You get to pick the fresh fish you want cooked.
This is the view of the beach at night.
This is the view during the day.
Low tide. 🙂
