Famous for its unconventional and informal dining style, and an interior inspired by the look and feel of a fisherman’s wharf, people drove in to this restaurant to taste the flavorful crabs and shrimps. You can also choose savory side dishes from crab chowder, spicy beef soup, spicy gumbo soup, green mango salad, and pomelo salad, ranging from P89-P195.
Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps was not envisioned as a seafood restaurant. When a group of friends, all fresh out of college and with a common love for going out, traveling, and bonding over food and drinks, they decided to venture into a business 22 years ago, which was supposed to be a bar.
In 2013, Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps was redesigned into a casual-dining haunt. The place owes its reinvention to Mr. and Mrs. Anthony and Jennifer Ang who in one of their US trips noticed the emergence of casual-dining seafood restaurants. Their popularity was such that people would line up even before the stores would open and didn’t mind it.
From L-R: Crabs smothered in butter and salted eggs for a sumptuous taste of your freshly catch seafood (market price for crabs) and Garlic Fried Shrimp coated in a special Blue Posts Batter and garlic fried to perfection. (P573 per pound)
One of these restaurants was so distinct it boasted a “messy finger-licking” dining style which reminded the couple of the very Pinoy “kamay-kainan” dining fashion. The Angs knew at once that they had to bring the same concept to Davao City.
Currently, Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps has 5 branches, located in Bajada, Lanang, Ecoland, SM City North EDSA, and SM Mall of Asia.
