Seafood is teeming in the Philippines. In Siargao island, I feasted on the freshest catch of the day. When I got back to Davao, my brother-in-law and sister brought me to this no-frills, open-air Liza's restaurant on Times Beach where the bounties of the sea reign supreme. It's cheap, it's good, and I'm not supposed to complain. But if this is the way I'm fed while I'm here - including carbs masquerading inside coconut leaves called puso, I'm afraid I'll be gaining weight faster than an American on a McDonald's diet.
