Red Crab heaven!

Sometimes, spur-of-the-moment group activities tend to happen than organized ones. No last-minute changes, no backing-out.

And it is in one of those moments that I visited red crab heaven.

I had dinner at The Seafood Club with officemates Gen, Harry, and Lorrie. It was a Thursday night so we were under the impression that restaurants wouldn't be as jampacked as weekends.

We were wrong.

We waited for more than half an hour before we were ushered in. It was more like a couple of hours when your stomach is grumbling. That was already around 8:30PM, but the buffet table was already showing signs of devastation, like a typhoon was crossing right through it!

We looked at what's available and took a few of each food item on our plate. There were no longer red crabs and alimasag (what's the english equivalent of this? hmmm) on the buffet table so the waiters said they will be serving us the crabs instead.

We munched our way into the buffet entrees but when the crabs dripping in butter and bacon bits were set on our table, we ate nothing else! No time for small talk. We cracked the shells, reached in for the tasty morsel, and munched away.

That was the night that I ate red crab til I could not eat anymore. Yes, I was in red crab heaven.

The Seafood Club is located at 2nd floor Greenbelt 3 in Makati. Great food, great service, excellent music. Expect to spend P500++ each on the average (well worth it!)


  1. masubukan nga dyan, mukhang masarap.

    sa singapore ang specialty nila ay chilli crab, grabe ang sarap, pero grabe din ang mahal.

    sa atin 300 pesos, panalo!

    hmm...been wanting to go there since last year..looks good, sarap,im actually salivating right now.

    i see that you'd been busy. :)
    boracay,baguio..i envy you!

  3. In America, half an hour wait for a popular restaurant is quite common. Also, if you went to an all you can eat crab buffet, I would expect to pay about 800 or 1000 pesos per person for crab that has been frozen and flown halfway around the world, not fresh like what you most likely had. I loved the seafood in the RP.

  4. at baket ako hindi kasama dito???!!! bakit?

  5. uy chili crab, cruise! saraaap nyan! siguro kahit every once in a while we indulge in something special, di ba?

  9. Bakit kaya dito sa saudi walang alimango? Sa fresh water lang ba sila galing talaga? Pero yung alimasag ang lalaki. Hayyy..kakamiss ang pagkaing pinoy.
