Choobi Choobi, SM City Dasmariñas

We had to make an unplanned trip to SM City Dasmariñas yesterday, Christmas Day, to have the rubber shoes Justin received as gift from my sister exchanged for a bigger size. He ended up getting a different pair, the one that he likes better. We met my sister there, together with my parents, and after my son has gotten his new rubber shoes, we decided to have early dinner at Choobi Choobi. Their menu says, Choobi Choobi offers “the freshest seafood made affordable!” and our food server said, their specialty is Cebuano dishes.

We ordered Seafood Barkada Bag upon my sister’s suggestion, and we paired it with Choobi Pata and Sabaw sa Halaan, hubby’s choices.

Sabaw sa Halaan, Php210.00

Sabaw sa Halaan is Choobi Choobi’s version of Clams in Ginger Broth. What sets this apart from others are the big clams, probably the biggest we’ve seen and had so far. The soup was heartwarming, perfect for a chilly Christmas night. I noticed, however, that clams this big are a bit rubbery; we ate them anyway. Lol!

See how big those clams are!

Seafood Barkada Bag, Php645.00

Shrimps, Chilean mussels, squid, chorizo and sweet corn are sautéed with garlic butter in this Seafood Barkada Bag that’s good for five to six people. The combination of the ingredients makes this the favorite item on our table. I love the soft squid, while the rest of the adults in our group enjoyed the shrimps and chorizo. You can have this spicy, too, if you like.

Choobi Pata (Large), Php485.00

This Choobi Pata was indeed soft and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside just like what their menu says. However, this “Large” Choobi Pata is quite small for its size. It just looks big on the plate because the parts were spread apart, but you’ll soon discover that it’s not as plump as it looks when you start eating it.

At Choobi Choobi, customers are given plastic gloves that they can use to avoid the mess when eating seafood. I failed to take a picture of these, though.

      Hi, Az! I actually have no idea what the “bag” really means in their Seafood Barkada Bag because it was served on a platter. I’ll ask on our next visit.

  2. Jen Ubongen says:

    Hmm. looks yummy! We might eat there next time since lapit lang namin dyan. Dasma din kami. 😉

  3. Wow! Looks yum! Yun lang, ang layo ng Dasma sa amin. Hahaha!

  4. Ceemee says:

    I love shrimps! My hubby would like the squid. It’s sad about the pata. But pata from some restaurants are about 700 pesos, right?

  5. Jhanis says:

    OMG I keep telling myself I’m gonna eat there but haven’t yet. Allergic si hubby and kids sa seafoods. I don’t wanna go alone. 🙁 I want the shrips!

  9. Coi says:

    and the seafood are delicious kasi galing talaga sa source

  11. Michelle says:

    Wow! That’s a huge clam!! And I like it that customers are given gloves. Ang messy rin kasi kumain ng seafood talaga. Unless nasa bahay lang. Ang sarap tuloy kumain ng seafood ngayon especially yung mga soup-based! 🙂

  12. I love Choobi Choobi! Sana kaya ko gawin sa bahay yun sauce nila lol.

  13. Madz says:

  14. EINz says:

    I love seafoods! May branch ba dito sa alabang?😍

  15. Liz A says:

    I’m quite allergic to seafoods but this looks like something my family would enjoy. Too bad, Dasma is too far!

  16. Maan says:

    I think we also have a Choobi Choobi here! Unfortunately, I’m allergic to seafood and so is my son. I’d love to go for that pata haha but their specialty is really seafood, right?

  17. Ayi says:

    Nakakagutom naman :)) First time I heard of the restaurant. Will look it up 🙂

  18. I’ve been hearing about Choobi Choobi. The name is so cute! Oh, those clams are so big!!!

  19. Denice says:

    Oooh! Maybe we can try this out next tine we go to Dasma. 🙂 pata looks so yummy! Makes me crave for food this late at night!

  20. Wow! Thise spread looks good though… makes me hungry nga 🙂

  21. edel says:

  22. TweenselMom says:

    That’s a huge halaan ah. I’ve never seen one that big.

  23. Janice says:

    I’ve never heard of this resto before but would love to try it. Do they have other branches in Metro Manila?

  24. Macy Santos says:

    I never hard of Choobi Choobi but the barkada seafood looks appetizing tho a bit pricey. I wonder how many pieces of parwns/shellfish/squids are in the bag? In other words sulit ba?

  25. A lot of these restaurants in Cebu! And their tagline is in Cebuano! Food is good and not expensive. And yes, I definitely recommend the shrimps!

  26. Berlin says:

    Why so layo? I guess there is another branch along Quezon Avenue. And we need to check it out asap. Your post makes me want to just eat and be fat.

  27. Lhourdes Mercadero says:
