After series of entries (as I said many times try lang ng try?), finally they picked me for their ninth leg!☺️ Maybe the shrimp was really meant for me because it’s my favorite (btw I’m allergic to shrimp haha!), thanks to my standby anti histamines hihi!?

What’s my entry? Short and simple.

Dinner was set last October 8 at Shrimp Bucket (UP Town Center, Quezon City Branch). Perfect for our advance monthsary celebration, I just noticed my birthdate is 9 and our anniv number as gf/bf was also 9. It’s our lucky number!?

Shrimp Bucket was exclusive for us that night, so it’s not too crowded.

I can’t helped but stare to this gigantic chandelier and map, it compliment each other. Their interior makes me feel I’m inside a pirate ship haha!?

They started the night with games, maybe to made us all hungry haha!? There were taste test and Q&A portion.

And then the appetizer,  the pork was perfectly fried it almost melt in your mouth. I think the salad had a taste of bagoong I forgot to ask the waitress for confirmation, but it taste really good. The serving was big and it almost made me full.

Here comes the main dish, the interesting part was,  when the waitress came out from their kitchen holding a big stainless bucket. Place it on our table and pull out a big plastic bag of shrimps swimming in its own sauce. When she opened the plastic bag you can smell the aroma of butter and salted egg. We have tried many shrimp dishes before, this time it’s unique shrimp with salted egg.  Take note “sauce palang ulam na”.

Meal is not complete without dessert, I’m not a fan of sago but this one is just right to remove the saltiness taste of the shrimp.

  1. Got envy upon seeing the bag of shrimps! Looks enticing and you must really have a great experience with a free dinner date… and hey congratulations for winning! That’s the con of leaving in Metro Manila. You got to attend or go to places sponsored at facebook. Sigh!

  2. I haven’t actually been to UP Town Center before, which is weird since it’s closer than ATC which I’ve visited a couple of times already. It’s the first I’ve heard of Shrimp Bucket, the name speaks for itself I guess. I am so going to eat there one of these days, I’m always up for some fresh quality shrimps/prawns, one of my fave seafood next to scallops!

    1. Their shrimps are so big that’s why I only ate 3 pieces!?(I’m allergic). For the usual size of shrimp I can eat 10 pieces hehe! They are targeting to have 10 branches within the year. I’m hoping too that they will considr MOA!?
