Prawn Star and Asombroso at the Yard

A month ago, Aldous Calubad invited me to the Yard. Since it was my first time going there, I was overwhelmed at how active the place was. Young people frequented the area and tried out the numerous food stalls in the compound. Our group tried out Prawn Star and Asombroso, two concessionaires in the area.

Here is the story in pictures:

We tried out the Pride. At 850 Pesos, the meal is hefty mix of Crabs, Shrimps, Clams, Corn, Sausage, Potatoes, and a thick sauce from different flavors.

The shrimps were pretty tasty. i also loved the slightly spicy pepper sauce which they used to flavor the mix.

The ingredients weighed about a kilo. Props to the fresh ingredients that the owners used for the meal.

The big bucket.

On the other hand, Asombroso is a Spanish-styled concessionaire which serves the best from the Peninsula.

The Patatas Bravas. This 130 Php dish is composed of baby potatoes fried in herbs. It is a finger food that complements viands. It is a bit oily and salty as well.

The Paella Balls (180 Php) and the Clams and Mussels (150 Php) in White Wine Sauce. The paella Balls were brimming with flavor. This double carb dish is composed of breading with a rice and chorizo filling. It suits my taste perfectly. The Clams and Mussels were pretty remarkable too. These are fresh. While the meals are in small servings, the flavors here are uncompromising,
