Charcoal Boy defies the perception that delectable food comes with a higher price tag, fortunately, with just over a hundred pesos, you can enjoy the exact quality or even more compared with other upscale restos in town. Never miss out our baked oysters with cheese and garlic, they taste much better as the other oysters somewhere with a higher price.


CharcoalBoy oyster comes in many varieties to choose from, aside from our bestseller baked oyster with cheese and garlic, we also have baked hot chili oysters (ohh so spicy), Baked Rockefeller oysters (with spinach), crispy fried oysters and the steamed ones.
