Dampa is a wet market
where you can buy fresh seafood and immediately
have these cooked at
a “palutuan” or cookery. Aling Tonya’s comes highly
recommended for being
clean and most accessible to the market vendors.
The house specialties
are the adobong pusit (black squid) and buttered
for their freshness. Dampa patrons, however, love to
come here to order
lobsters and crabs which may be cooked at any of the
palutuans as well.
Specialties: ADOBONG PUSIT, BUTTERED SHRIMP
