Food Trip #5: Mount Sabrina

If you’d like to taste the best way to cook tuna

Then  check out Mount Sabrina’s Overlook

It’s owned by Soledad Manangquil, the original Queen of Tuna Dishes

For starters, their Tuna Sashimi will wow you to no end

Theirs are Thinly-sliced, Fresh and Sweet-tasting

The mixture-dip of kikkoman sauce and wasabe  made it more special

Nothing of the tuna goes to waste with their Paksiw na Palikpik

Simmered to cooking perfection in vinegar, garlic and ginger

Its sourness will certainly make you forget your diet

You should also try their Adobong Tuna Bagaybay and Bihod

Bagaybay is the the solidified sperm of the male tuna while Bihod is fish roe

Now this is one for the books because it sure taste like tender tofu

To balance our dinner we were served Crispy-fried Pork Chops

All you needed was a vinegar-dip with minced garlic

Then you’re good to go!

Their Sweet and Sour Tuna Slices gave the whole meal a Chinese twist

If you’re a sweet and sour dish-lover then you’ll love this

It may have some umay-after taste so be ready of your Coca-Cola drink

Kinilaw na Tuna Cubes are prepared right before your eyes

This way, you avoid “over-cooking” the tuna meat

Every bite makes for a fresh-tasting tuna-tanginess

And of course, we tried their Inihaw na Tuna Panga

I learned the secret of grilling tuna and that’s doing it on slow fire

At Mount Sabrina they don’t marinate them and just sprinkle it with salt

The secret lies in the sauce which they serve garnished with onions and tomatoes

Enjoy the breathtaking view of serene Sarangani Bay to the south and majestic Mt. Matutum and Mt. Parker to the east as you soak in the classic countryside ambience.  Mount Sabrina is located at Banualan, Tambler, General Santos City.  Pre-arranged reservations may be made by calling Magi at 0923-280-5966 or Arceli at 0923-709-3964.  Dining at night would be best.
