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.
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.
The Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps has the Nestlé 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.
