You might have noticed that Blackbeard’s Seafood Island at the Abreeza Mall was closed for a couple of weeks a month or two ago.
That is to give way for them to improve their facilities and their food.
Raymond Reyes, director for operations, said they not only renovated the place but also enhanced their dishes and boodle sets. They are also introducing new desserts to their menu as they reopened their store here.
During an exclusive media and blogger event, we were able to try some of their boodle sets and new desserts.
The boodle meals, which are good for five to seven persons, are inspired by many locations in the Philippines. For our dinner here, we had the Mt. Apo, Tali Beach, Taal, Davao, and Meaty Madness boodle feasts.
