Griller’s Oyster House

I have been soo deprived from eating out this holiday season as meals were celebrated inside people’s homes. Not that I’m complaining — home cooked food in my family is always delicious. However, the bucaneer in me refuses to stay stagnant. Thus my whining led my family & I to try Griller’s Oyster House in Smallville.

Griller’s is a place I have been raring to try for several reasons: (1) I need to eat somewhere new, (2) I need to write on someplace new for my blog, (3) I love oysters or better known as talaba. I was surprised to know that Nong Ryan (cousin of my cousin), is one of the owners of the place. Now, a little information before I dish out my opinions. The specialty of the house is (duh) oysters. With our region being abundant with talaba, it is no surprise that a specialty restaurant was put up.

The menu consists of the usual favourites such as backribs (Php280, good for 5, yummy marinade) & sisig (Php105). Their selection of talaba is to-die-for while the prices will keep your wallet alive.

  • Baked Talaba – Php78
  • Steamed Talaba – Php45
  • Sizzling Talaba – Php115
  • Hot Chili Talaba – Php78
  • Crispy Fried Talaba – Php108
  • Talaba with Bacon – Php118

Their baked talaba is pretty good whereas the fried one is my favourite as of the moment.

Service is excellent as well. An added plus: at 10 PM, Griller’s becomes a bar — outdoor seating with mats, a DJ & lights & all. What’s the perfect pulutan to pair up with your beer than talaba, right?
