The word “seafood” is enough of a stimulus to make the mouth water and for the brain to think about the salty and gentle flavors of the sea.

The seafood craze has spread so wide that even some of those allergic to seafood would prefer to take their meds rather than miss the chance to taste heaven.

Matalom, Leyte, a small town situated 17.5 kilometers away from Maasin City, is blessed with seas that are teeming with various underwater species. With the abundant harvest of sea critters in the town, it basically makes Matalom one big seafood buffet. Seafood Restaurants are strategically placed at the hems of the town for a great seaside experience that would pair well with the sumptuous meals.

Kan-anan sa Superball stands as one of the town’s most popular seaside restaurants. It is a family-owned business serving fresh seafoods and appetizing barbecues. They have the typical seaside restaurant with a big hut perched on stilts over water.

What sets them apart from other seaside restaurants are their cottages which provide a space for groups to enjoy their seafood ventures together while appreciating the scenic views of the ocean. The best views come during sunsets as the sun dips into the horizon and gives the sky a tinge of orange which sets the mood for a great time with everybody.

Their dishes cover the basic seafood choices such as grilled scallops, butter and garlic shrimp, and calamares. They also have other hefty meals for those who prefer the non-seafood variants such as pork, chicken, and beef. The best of all are their platters on banana leaves that make for a great kamayan meal – the traditional style of Filipinos where they eat using their bare hands.
