Crazy Crab Experience

Living in an island with an abundant supply of crustaceans—spelled as crabs—it is not a wonder why we get to eat these sea staple frequently.

In a restaurant in Banilad located in Countrymall (northern Cebu City), a unique experience awaits diners as it offers fresh crabs steamed and you get to choose the sauce. Choose from a lot of varieties but I prefer the hot sauce.

Did I write that you get to meet the crab alive before it is cooked and serve in your plate? Yes, you get to pick your crab, they will weigh it and then you choose how it should be cooked.

While waiting for your crabby, you can also enjoy other dishes like the pancit (noodles) and their sizzling sisig (minced pork’s head in pepper). Oh! And do not forget that you need to order a mango shake to pair with your crabby.

Rice lovers, this is a perfect match in this meal.

Eating might be a bit messy but that is part of the whole experience. After all, how would you eat a crab without using your fingers?

And if you want to leave a remembrance, try doodling in the crab’s back and it will be decorated in the restaurant’s wall. This adds a homey ambience in the restaurants and would inspire you to come back again.

This seafood experience is worth doing again and the next time I will come back, I would make sure to bring a better camera to capture the food’s delectable presentation.

The crabs are waiting for you. You can add crabs on your pasta.

Same here too. Being near the coast has the advantage.☺
