Food Review: Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps

There are days when your brain is not functioning properly. Days like Sundays you just hit the road off and grab some delicious food, think less and enjoy every second of the day. Yet the cons of having a zen moment is people taking advantage of it, like the one we experienced at Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps.

Disclaimer: WE HAVE NO IDEA IT WAS 800Grams of Crab they gave us.

Our agenda was to attend Bloggers United since we both want to meet Kryz Uy (my favorite blogger) but since it was so crowded we took off.

Rainy and Crowded.

Drove around and went to Seascape which is a new hangout place at the back of Sofitel Philippines. The place itself mainly focuses on “Dampa” vibes.. And found our way to Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps. I was giddy because I thought it’s a cheap place for crabs and I remember telling Yana that I just had dinner last month at Red Crab on which it’s a bit expensive and expected.

The place is quite nice. Feeling the ocean vibes.

(Updated) Too bad I wasn’t able to capture the moment where the servers came to our table with a bucket of crab and suggested we try the salted egg flavor crabs – said it was their best seller. So we said okay. Unfortunately, they served an 800GRAMS without informing us. They even questionably asking “Yon lang po ba order niyo?“.

To be honest, I was smitten by the servers hospitality. AS IN. Yana told me “Wow, sila pa naglalagay ng bib natin?”. They didn’t do that to the other table though.

The kuya who actually showed us a bucket of lively crab. And he put the bib for us.

We were a bit shocked when the crab came to our table, in my mind, “WOW!! How big the serving is! And how cheap these cost.” (Assumera!). I’m a big fan of crab as well.

To be fair, the salted egg crab was really delicious. It’s so tasty you wouldn’t want to stop. I was drawn to the taste of it. Plus the corn is a good combi for those who doesn’t like rice like me. LOL.

Yep. Finish the whole thing despite being bloated.

We were so full and happy until the bill came. We were shocked to find out how much we were about to pay.

Who eats a 2K worth of crab that is just nearby DAMPA?! WHO!!!

We were like, for a CRAB?! For a freaking crab!!! I even suggested to dine at Sofitel if only I brought the Accor card. But for this. It’s not worth it for two pax. Lesson learned for us though is to ask how much grams they would serve us. Thanks to the servers who just took off after we finished meals. We told the manager about this one and as always we just got a “Sorry ma’am, pagsasabihan ko sila“. They don’t accept credit cards, good thing we brought extra money. Truly not a crab momentum though it’s really yummy.

If you are dining in, I suggest you ask the servers first about how much grams they will give you. LOL. Plus, it’s better to share with two more!

Until my next food review.

PS: For haters of this review, I have been to several restaurants like the Red Crab, Choi Garden and even at JUMBO, SINGAPORE, I usually don’t ask how much grams because THEY ARE THE ONES CONFIRMING WITH US. So yeah, I’d say it still is the servers’ responsibility and FYI I didn’t say anything that we are right, we are also at fault for not asking.

  1. I am sorry, but as a “food blogger” or as a responsible customer, isn’t it your fault that you did not double check how much is the food that you are ordering? I do not understand why you are hating on the waiter. You asked for the best seller, he said it. It’s not as if you asked for their price. The waiter does not deserve the hate you wrote here. Unless you did not mention other details here. But reading this, this is entirely your fault. Please be careful with your words and think twice before posting it. The waiter did not rob your money. This is something like not reading the terms and conditions of a promo, or the fine print. I am not part of the resto. I am just a random reader here, so no, I am not biased. This is not a hate message too; this is simply an honest comment re: this post. Thanks for reading.

    1. Hi Anon / Anonymous, first of all it would be very nice if you could have written your real name to address you properly (shame on hiding). Secondly, I didn’t say I’m a food blogger. Thirdly, I don’t think you’re from Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps. Not all. 😏 also, I didn’t write I hate the servers. Where did I mentioned it? If my word “robbed” displeased you, I’m sorry, but it was how we felt at that moment. After all, my site is not for a faux review. Fourthly, we asked for the best seller “flavor”. There’s a difference between grams and flavors. Anyway, I’m glad you took time on reading my review but I suggest you read the whole context again and set aside your emotions. I indicated “lesson learned” also fyi. ☺️ thank you again, Anon. Have a blessed day.

  2. This is obviously your fault. I am sure this is not the first time of you eating at this kind of establishment or the likes. You assumed it was cheap on what basis? Did the establishment post or said anything for you to assume that? Even blaming the waiter/server for robbing off your money. Please be mindful on the usage of words as every word implies a different meaning and context.

    1. Hello there concerned individual. I might suggest you re-read it again and set aside your emotions. If you do, perhaps you would read it in a different context. Again, I indicated “lesson learned”. Next time you comment on my post, may I suggest you re-read the whole context before implying your concerns. 🙂 have a blessed day to you and your company.

  3. Hi Katrina, I hope you won’t tag this as a hate comment, but seeing the two comments, I think they’re banking on this line: “Too bad I didn’t capture the servers, with bucket of crab, who swept away our money after. (Due to the harshness word “robbed” and hater comments, I had to rephrased)” Would you take a photo of the waiters if they were there and post it here? I hope not. That could be cyberbullying if ever ah. Just a concerned reader too! I am with you in complaining to the manager, but saying that implies that you would’ve wanted to post the photos of the waiter. I actually saw on your public post on Facebook that you had a caption saying, “deceiving waiters.” Maybe these two commentators read that too? To be honest, their menu is the one that is deceiving. I think it is their menu that needs a revamp. I understand that you got frustrated too.

    If you really found this experience a funny one, maybe the choice of words / changing the tone is something you have to work on as a blogger. It’s okay, Katrina. We all learn, right? 🙂

    I love reading your insights about faith, Katrina. You are better than this. Please be careful with how you answer your readers’ comments. 🙂

    Also, not related to this post hehe sorry! Do you really mean “Captivating Fate” as in destiny or “faith”? 🙂

    Thank you for taking the time to hear me out! Have a blessed day as well. 🙂

    1. Hi Alexa. Thank you for your “concern”. Mostly, I appreciate how you play well with your words. Anyhoo. It’s really up to you to decide if it’s destiny or faith. Really. I’m pretty sure you are one smart lad. Thank you, really.
