LANAO DEL NORTE | Dinner at El Canto Grill and Seafood House

Friday, October 18, 2013

It was the third day of Iligan City’s Waterfalling Adventure Tour 1.0 and even though we only visited a single waterfall today, the angel-winged Dodiongan Falls, we are definitely feeling the effect of visiting the breathtaking waterfalls of the city.

To be fair, we literally spent the previous afternoon simply shooting the breeze along the tree-lined shore of the Centennial Park to witness the sunset at Iligan City. A relatively relaxed day on the tour; still, our stomach called to us come evening.
We roamed the streets of Iligan and found ourselves seated on a dimly lit restaurant at one of Iligan’s corner streets. Our dinner’s gonna be at the El Canto Grill & Seafood House.

Located at the back of Iligan’s very pink cathedral, the restuarant looked cozy enough with its wooden chairs and tables. Artworks depicting local sceneries and customs line its mottled tangerine walls; a painting exhibit from different schools in Iligan City is hosted inside the restaurant. 

More stories were shared as we waited on our dinner.

El Canto Grill & Seafood House’s specialty as its name suggests are grilled seafood and chicken barbeque. For some reason, they don’t serve pork dishes in their restaurant, but that’s fine by me.

I’m just curious if their chicken barbeque can compete with Tita Fannies’. And just like Jacko’s Kan-Anan, they also serve buffets every once in a while for less than Php200.00. Not bad eh?

It was a bit of a challenge to photograph the dishes served to us that night due to the very dim lighting of the restaurant, so pardon the grainy photos.

To be honest, I found the food at El Canto Grill & Seafood House to be pretty average; it was okay, but not extraordinary. It’s one of those restaurants where you can have your steady fill while in Iligan City; restos where you can eat daily without having to break the bank and be assured that you’re having clean and good quality food.
