Isla Sugbu Gives 'Sutukil' a Delicious Rebirth

This Cebu restaurant is redefining the Sutukil experience.

“Sutukil” is a Visayan term which combines the words “sugba” (grill), “tuwa” (stew), and “kilaw” (to bathe raw seafood in vinegar). Diners get to choose which seafood they want and how it was going to be cooked. This three-way style of cooking seafood made sampling Sutukil an essential part of any Cebu visitor’s itinerary.

The Sutukil business was a competitive and robust industry for awhile. Its decline was attributed to sanitation, food safety concerns and overpricing but the newly-opened Isla Sugbu Seafood City Restaurant at the Grand Convention Center of Cebu is all about the rebirth of Sutukil.


Isla Sugbu owner Winglip Chang, of Grand Majestic fame, has made Sutukil an elevated dining experience. An array of fresh seafood—from lobsters, red snapper, salmon, crayfish, parrot fish, and even diwal—greets guests in the spacious dining space. Seafood sourced not only from Cebu but from Samar, Roxas City, and Bohol are kept only for a limited time to ensure everything is fresh.

The restaurant is a far cry from your usual Sutukil stand near public markets or roadside eatery but Isla Sugbu makes feasting on seafood an affordable affair. Sutukil menus for groups of four at Isla Sugbu are priced at P1,600: it includes your choice of three Sutukil dishes, a free appetizer, and a rice platter.

At the media launch last February, Chang said passion is what drives his team to serve the best and freshest seafood and meals to diners. Seafood fans will be glad to know this—it’s definitely worth a visit to see what this new resto will bring to the table.
