Authentic Sugba-Tola-Kilaw at Edcil's Sutokil


The restaurant popular in Davao City for its affordable buffet meals is set to take on Koronadal City and the passing travelers, but this time with its home cooked specialties. Imagine juicy grilled tuna belly and the aroma of imbao shell soup!

Edcil's Sutokil's juicy grilled tuna belly

Edcil’s Sutokil (Sugba, Tola, Kilaw – Grill, soup, ceviche) highlights in its menu the grilled tuna belly, tinolang manok and kinilaw na tuna. Cecil Cudilla, the owner and other half of Ed-Cil brand name, said the Koronadal branch is his try to highlight his specialties and what Sutukil is really about.

Kinilaw, anyone?

Chicken tinola with malunggay and green papaya
Edcil’s Sutokil - Eat All You Can in Davao city serves a long list of everyday menu fit for the hundreds of patrons wanting to have an unlimited fill of Edcil’s goodness. “This time, we’ll serve sutukil menus using my cooking secrets”, said Mr. Cudilla, a Koronadal native himself.

I ordered by favorite grilled tuna belly. After around 12 minutes, a juicy piece of red-brown, well-cooked tuna belly that can serve one to two persons was served. There’s a secret to preserving the juiciness of the tuna meat aside from having the right grilling machine, Mr. Cudilla shared to his three guests. I forgot what the secret was but I remember how balanced was the saltiness with the natural flavor.


My thing, imbao sea shell soup!

Secondly, the tinolang manok, traditionally cooked with green papaya in single serving. I can’t testify how it tastes since chicken is not part of my diet as a pescatarian. But Sir Avel of Gensantos.com and Mars romanced the tinola soup to its last drop and left no chicken meat to their bowls. I romanced the bowl of tinolang imbao sea shells cooked with the aromatic lemon grass locally known as tanglad. 

The kinilaw was a hit. A serving of fresh tuna chunks comes with cucumber cubes. You do your own mixing with salt and vinegar. 

Aside from its specialties Edcil’s Sutokil also serves Seafood Steak for squid, gambas, bagaybay, tuna belly, boneless bangus or tuna roe (bihod). Ah, a pescatarian’s delight. It comes with unlimited rice for an additional P20.



Meat menus include bulalo, T-bone, beefsteak tenderloin and brisket and ribs. Edcil's strictly don't serve pork menus!


When traveling to Tacurong City or Koronadal City from Gensan or the other way around, drop by Edcil’s Sutokil for a sumptuous sutukil meal. The resto is adjacent to The Farm at Carpenter Hill along Gensan Drive/National Highway in Barangay Carpenter Hill, Koronadal City. []
