Royal Kitchen - a Chinese Seafood Restaurant in Seaside Dampa

I was digging through my files for a couple of days for the sake of organizing them, and I stumbled upon photos of Royal Kitchen where my block mate, Meg Olea, celebrated her birthday this year. I didn't have any plans blogging about it (since I don't know anything about the prices of the dishes we had), but I realized that the experience is still worthy to be shared.

A Slightly Hidden Place called Royal Kitchen
We had a hard time searching for this place because it is located deep within the Hobbies of Asia. Initially, we parked in thinking that we found the place. Unfortunately, it was Royal Chef Seafoods Garden Restaurant which is an entirely different restaurant. It took us a few minutes to actually locate the restaurant.

Upon entering the restaurant, I immediately caught the regular vibe I sense every time we go to a Chinese restaurant to celebrate a birthday of a relative. This emanated from the table settings, predominantly red color scheme, large aquariums and etc.

After pondering on the interior, we were immediately directed upstairs to the private room where Meg's dinner celebration was held. The room was really neat with a surprisingly huge round table (good for about 25 people), and then spiced up with a karaoke system.

Now, it's time to dig in, but again, I want to apologize for not including the prices.

The shrimps, as I remembered it, were really tasty and superbly fresh! I ate about 20 of these.

The calamari or calamares had this lovely crunch that we were able to enjoy. The great thing about this dish is that the chef was able to cook the squid just right as evidenced by the texture.

Now, this was something I really adored -- scallops and cheese - these are two things I definitely love both individually and combined.

Although some were slightly over-baked resulting to the apparent blackness of some parts of the melted cheese, I still was able to really fall in love with the baked scallops!

This Sweet and Sour Fish dish was also something that made my tummy happy. It had this fruity sweet sauce that went well with the fresh fish.

For the next dishes, I would just share with you the photos, since they are not as noteworthy as the ones above. However, I still included them here, so you'll have more idea of what they serve here in the restaurant.

To sum all up, I generally found the food delightful here in Royal Kitchen! In fact, I heavily enjoyed all the seafood dishes especially the baked scallops. Having said all these, I believe Royal Kitchen is an interesting place to satisfy your seafood cravings!
