Blue Post Boiling Crabs & Shrimps expands at SM Mall of Asia

When the couple Anthony and Jennifer Ang were travelling the west coast of the US, they found themselves in the famed San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf in California, were people would brace long lines outside the establishment hours before opening time to enjoy crabs.  Anthony and Jennifer saw the business potential and had since established its own unique brand in Davao, Philippines upon return.


After successfully bringing in the well-known Davao restaurant Blue Post Boiling Crabs and Shrimps to Manila last August 26, 2016 at The Block, SM North EDSA, BPBC  decided to open their second branch here at the SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City.



I joined in the  launch to witness the January 23, 2017 store opening and of course, to partake in their seafood offerings.

 At Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps, they offer a seafood selection from Crabs, Shrimps and Mussels. Next, they ask you for your cooking preference. You have the option to have your order  done in the Blue Posts Boil, Garlic Fried, or Sambal with your desired level of heat (Regular, Hot, Mild, and Spicy).  You can also mix up crabs, mussels or shrimps depending on your preference.

They also have Pomelo Slad and offer a variety  of add-ons like  Corn on the Cob, Pork Sausage,  Hungarian sausage  and Potatoes.


We were served Clam chowder and spicy gumbo soup for starters. The crab chowder was a hit!

The flavorful juice from clam mixes well with the butter, onions, potatoes,  celery,  and carrots. I just wished they stirred in more clam bits in its smooth soup.

The spicy gumbo soup was loaded with sausages but it lacked that wow and heat  factor I was looking for.



 Crabs do taste like a sweet  fish.  with a subtle sweetness. Eating it involves a messy, finger-licking dining since you have to dig and suck for the meat. Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps lines your table with a food-grade wax paper.  A mallet, wooden chpping board,  a Blue Posts bib and  disposable plastic hand gloves are set before you to make your  eating adventure pleasant.   


 

The Original Boiled Cajun Bag Crabs was succulent. The fresh crabs had  a delicate briny sweetness, mixed up with its Cajun-style sauce.  The sauce was so full of flavor that you can even put it  on top of your  steamed rice.



The  new Sambal Chili Crabs was my personal favorite The hot chili sauce was thick and savory. 

It was really good that I didn't mind getting my hands  in a total mess eating with  barehanded. the Crispy Garlic Crab   with tons of garlic is also a must-try!

 



Another Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps variant is the Crabs in Salted Egg.
These are fried crabs with seasoned with garlic and real salted egg.

Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps had this to offer along with Shrimps in Garlic Lemon Sauce.




Shrimps in Garlic Lemon Sauce brings out the sweetness of the prawns.



They also brought in Sinuglaw. A dish made of grilled Pork pieces, fresh Tuna, herbs and spices. It was a good way to enjoy grilled pork and pickled tuna. It was also a superb barchow if you like  it with beer.








Aside from  getting the perfect mix for your bag, they also have the perfect drinks!





The Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps has the NestlĂ© Mixology Bar. A first in the Philippines, it boasts of  different combinations using the 6 basic flavors to create colorful concoctions. 



BPBCS crabs and shrimps is unrivalled. For those hooked,  their fresh  sea to table dishes are for the books.

  2. I recently passed by their SM North branch, and was completely floored with all the delicious selections. If only I brought my Anti-histamine meds, I would've dined at the restaurant that same day.
