No Problem STK: Sutukil Dining in Payag Style Huts

Share this: 

No Problem STK seves sutukil dishes in unique payag-style huts.

Sutukil is a must-try dining experience whenever you’re in Cebu. This cooking method has been practiced by Cebuanos way before the Spanish colonization. 

Dozens of restaurants around the island (especially in Lapu-Lapu City) preserve the concept by cooking various seafood dishes in three different methods: sugba (grill), tuwa (soup), and kilaw (cooked with vinegar).

Over the years, locals have added a modern twist to this iconic cooking style, and what better way to get the full experience than at a sutukil restaurant?

No Problem STK is a newly opened seafood restaurant located in Mandaue.

They offer popular seafood dishes that customers can eat inside large payag-style huts. 

As a seafood restaurant in Cebu, it makes sense to specialize in different kinds of seafood. But at No Problem, they also serve pork and chicken barbecue meals, sisig, and other seafood staples like scallops, shrimp, calamares, and more.

The original branch is located in the former Sendai Motors Service Center along Cabancalan, and there is an upcoming branch at the North Reclamation Area.

SUTUKIL IN PAYAG HUTS

The restaurant uses the freshest fish, delivered daily to ensure quality taste.

Customers can choose from a variety of fish, with Lapu-Lapu and Pompano being two of their most popular offerings.

The STK dishes are priced per gram, so you can gauge your budget based on how much you would like to eat. 

They also offer a few budget-friendly food items that you won’t need to skimp on.

Their selection of ala carte meals are aptly called “turo-turo,” referring to the “finger pointing” food culture. 

Customers choose their food from the display of various dishes laid out in front.

Many of these cost less than 100 Php, while the pricier ones come in bigger portions. 

Their most popular dishes include Larang and Balbacua – two of the most famous exotic dishes on the island. Both are stews made from unique ingredients, with Larang using pufferfish and Balbacua consisting of oxtail. 

Another popular dish on their menu is the Manok Bisaya. This local delicacy consists of a whole chicken cooked in an old-fashioned manner – by stuffing the bird with ingredients like lemongrass and garlic, then roasting it in an open fire. 

This old-school way of cooking is still widely practiced today, especially in its place of origin, Dumanjug. 

Speaking of roasting, you can also buy lechon at No Problem, a staple in Filipino food culture.

Finally, end your dinner with a classic Filipino dessert like halo-halo

The name translates to “mix-mix,” a sweet treat that consists of ice cream, shaved ice, beans, coconut shavings, banana plantains, leche flan, and nata de coco.

The payag-style huts definitely give the restaurant a unique ambiance. 

Each payag offers a sense of privacy that makes it perfect for intimate celebrations and social gatherings. The huts also light up at night, adding to the cozy vibe of this outdoor dining restaurant.

In case you didn’t know, payag is the Bisaya term for “bahay kubo,” a type of house that early Filipinos used to live in. They are made up of local materials like nipa and anahaw, thus the alternative name “nipa hut.”

No Problem STK is operated by Pages Food Group, one of the most successful food companies in the Philippines. They are famous for managing establishments like Lantaw Floating Restaurant and Thirsty Shakes and Drinks. 

The restaurant opens at 11:00 AM on Mondays to Fridays and 8:00 AM on the weekends. They close at 3:00 PM and reopen for dinner from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM. 

Sutukil is indeed an essential part of Cebuano food culture, as more and more restaurants highlight this cooking method as one of the best ways to enjoy various seafood dishes.
