Seascape Village. overlooking Manila Bay is Manila’s newest seafood destination. The village is home to the famous Sofitel hotel and the Manila Film Center, and features a beach walk and sand bar, and unique boutiques.

The village features restaurants like The Country Crab, Asian Taste featuring Chinese cuisine, and Samgy Garden offering Korean BBQ and shabu-shabu.

Ask the vendors to help you find the best restaurant if you don’t have a reservation. They know the place well and have a good relationship with the restaurants. Gracie Seafoods helped us find a restaurant despite the fact the place was packed with people.
Cha Wang Milk Tea
Aside from seafood, a refreshment kiosk also sits in the middle. I found one of my favourite drinks at Cha Wang Milk Tea. It was refreshing and delicious. Seating is available in their dining area or on the plant boxes. Rest and relax here after a long day’s walk along the seawall.
Samgy Gargen – All you can eat Korean BBQ
Besides seafood, you will find Samgy Garden, an all-you-can-eat Korean barbeque restaurant also known as Samgyupsal. Wagyu Shabu-shabu is also available. Samgy Garden requires a reservation via the EAT APP booking system. You can make a reservation here.
