The fun thing about dining at this restaurant is that you get to personally pick the seafood or meat that they will cook for you. You’ll notice if you visit any branch, there’s always a mini wet market set-up near the kitchen and grilling station, which is where you’ll see all the fresh shrimp, crab, fish, squid, pork, chicken, and beef you can choose from.

After choosing what you want, you’ll place them on a tray and have them weighed because you have to pay per gram/kilo, just like how you would in real markets. They will then ask you what dish to cook using your meat selection.

Ningnangan is actually a Kapampangan word that means “to grill.” So, it’s only fitting that they serve really good grilled dishes such as pork barbecue skewers, stuffed squid, stuffed bangus, and mussels.

A lot of the regulars also swear by their garlic buttered shrimp and crabs. Still, you could get staple Filipino dishes, including sinigang, nilaga, and bulalo.

Expect to wait around 30-40 minutes for the food to arrive since everything is cooked from scratch, proving you’ll be getting every dish right off the grill or stove.
