After having our much needed sleep, we headed out to Island City Mall to have dinner at The Prawn Farm. The Prawn Fram is widely known for their buffet that only costs 400php per head. We both love eating at buffets so we decided to eat dinner and avail their buffet. Much to our surprise, they only offer buffets during weekends so we had no choice but to settle with their ala carte menu.
The ambiance is pretty nice, there were only few people eating when we dined so the place is pretty quiet.
The Prawn Farm Food:
Earvin being the meat lover that he is settled for grilled pork chops. We shared this dish and it’s okay. It tastes pretty good but it’s quite dry. Nothing really special.
I ordered their Prawns Sauteed in Coconut Milk. The sauce tastes really good however, the prawns were RAW. Yup, undercooked, grossly raw. I first ate the meat of the prawns and yup it’s a bit undercooked and still quite good but when I dig into the head, crap, I almost puked. It was gross.
We asked their server to have it cooked again and they did cooked it again. It’s quite disappointing though since they are named The Prawn Farm, meaning they take pride in their prawns so they should know how to cook it well. It’s disappointing that we experienced it, and the waiter didn’t even apologize, not even a single sorry. We just let it pass, we ate it after they cooked it again but I didn’t dare touch the heads anymore. Ugh, that used to be my favorite!
Even though such unfortunate thing happened with the prawns, I LOVE their garlic rice. It’s pretty much the best garlic rice in Bohol! You gotta eat it while it’s hot though ’cause it gets pretty greasy if you don’t eat it right away.
It’s quite sad that we didn’t get to experience their buffet spread but we’ll definitely try it out the next time we visit Bohol. We’re not really pleased with their ala carte menu. Their service isn’t that good too, it takes forever for the food to be served, maybe at least 30 minutes. Well, at least their garlic rice is great! 😉
