Sands Restaurant, Discovery Shores Boracay

I recently wrote about a great birthday dinner I attended at Discovery Shores Boracay, a feast I still recall fondly now that I’m back in New York, far away from fresh seafood and the hearty eaters of my family.

Another meal with mentioning is the first one we had upon arrival at the island. Discovery’s Sands Restaurant provides a mix of seaside creations alongside Filipino favorites. We definitely indulged.

I’m a huge fan of raw oysters on their own, but I’m also a fan of adventure. Sands gave us two options to amp up a basic recipe for success. The carbonara-topped oysters made you say, Why the hell not? while the crunch and bite of the ceviche with Corn Nuts definitely caused a number of double and triple takes.

It’s refreshing to see that piscivores have options at Sands that didn’t consist of a battered and deep-fried fish fillet. I enjoy it when restaurants take the time to work on a dish’s visual appeal.

Sands’ take on a popular Filipino dish gets A+ for presentation in my book.

And how tender is this bistek? This is a dish one orders when they scan through the menu and decide that they want a basic Pinoy staple of stewed meat and a mountain of white rice.

Sands Restaurant is definitely a reason it’s very hard to leave the resort once you’re in. You just want to lay out in front of the beach and be fed all day.

Up close and personal with oysters carbonara. Why the hell not?
