‘Crabs’ (*price varies at market price) by Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps are huge, meaty and flavorful! You have a choice to have it cooked ala ‘Blue Post Boil,’ ‘Garlic Fried’ or ‘Sambal’ and at regular, mild or hot & spicy flavors – best dipped with their choices of native ‘suka’ like ‘sinamak’ or local vinegar.
‘Shrimps in Cajun Special Sauce’ (P573/pound) by Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps are grilled King Prawns marinated in their special Cajun Spice Sauce with a mix of African lemon, fried garlic and slices of spring onion. I can eat this every day!
Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps is has become synonymous with good (sea)food in Davao. But fret not fellow foodies! No need to fly to Davao to savor their famous seafood fare. They will open at the 4th floor of SM North, The Block on August 26! There’s also news that they will open another branch at SM MOA before the year ends.
To know more about my food adventure during their foodie preview/tasting by-invitation last August 17 plus their menu, just click and read after the jump!
To tickle your palette for starters, I recommend having their ‘Sinuglaw’ (a dish composed of grilled pork belly and fish ceviche cooked by soaking in vinegar or citric acid) or if you want something hot first, their ‘Spicy Gumbo Soup’ is a warm and hearty delight.
For appetizers, my favorite is their ‘Crab & Shrimp Roll’ which is fully packed with ingredients in a thin crunchy shell.
I also like their ‘Calamares’ that is surprisingly tender to the bite and breaded thinly for a bit of crunch.
Aside from crabs and shrimps, Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps also offers Tuna, grilled or crunchy with garlic. They also offer fried ‘hito’ or catfish.
They also have ‘Grilled Native Chicken,’ ‘Chicken Adobo,’ ‘Battered Chicken,’ or if you want meat, they have ‘Garlic Pork Riblets’ and ‘Garlic Pork Belly.’
For dessert, my favorite is their ‘Pomelo Cream w/ Corn’ by Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps is a the mix of ‘suha’ (pomelo), ‘nata de coco’ (jelly made from fermented coconut water), all-purpose cream, ‘pinipig’ (pounded young glutinous rice), etc. Its amazingly light and just perfect after a crab or shrimp bag meal!
So, that’s my food adventure at Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps! I highly recommend to try them out and will definitely go back with my family and friends because its more fun to eat (and be messy) when you’re in good company.
