Tahong Island: The Best Baked Mussels In The South

Saturday, February 25, 2017


          What started as a small selling business now grew into a well-known spot for the best baked mussels in the South area.  Tahong Island offers fresh mussels, shrimps and fish dishes created in a way that is perfect for Filipinos' taste buds.



Back in 2014, power couple Edward Guttierez and Trish Aguilar started their business by selling their baked mussels in their offices during the holidays. It was a big hit, and after a few years, they were able to save up to rent a place in Pilar Village, Las Pinas.

"The feedback from the local communities was overwhelming. I am very thankful to our customers who remained loyal to us ever since we started the business. Even if we transfer to several locations, they did not stop ordering from us," said Gutierrez.  Tahong Island's dishes are all his original recipes. With no professional training, Gutierrez runs the business with his passion for cooking and entrepreneurship.

"I love doing Tahong Island," mused Aguilar. She handles marketing, accounting and finance for the business. "It was something we both loved doing together. When we were just selling our products in our offices, I never expected Tahong Island to branch out into a full-fledged business. Now, I am glad that we are reaching more people, and that more people love what we do as well."

Now, Tahong Island is located at El Grande, BF Homes Paranaque to reach more customers. What started as a take-out stall in Las Pinas now caters to dine-in customers in their new location.  Their best-selling dishes include Cheesy Garlic Baked Mussels, Garlic Shrimp and Shrimpy-Shrimpy. The store also delivers around Las Pinas, Paranaque and Muntinlupa areas.
