A seafood lover’s haven, Blue Posts Boiling Crabs & Shrimps has you covered when you are in the mood for a solid spot serving freshly cooked seafood. We had dinner here last weekend and this restaurant has become one of our new favorites. Large shrimps and crabs are the specialty, but mussels and fish entrees are also appropriate moves. Don’t sleep on pork and chicken dishes either; these are a nice change of pace. Mixing some poultry or meat in with your seafood is never a bad idea.

Review of Blue Posts Boiling Crabs & Shrimps (Greenhills, San Juan)

Ambiance:

As a casual seafood joint in Greenhills, Blue Posts has a low-key airy atmosphere and has certainly made use of its ample space. Suspended bright lighting, like jewelry for the interior, brings an illuminated, modern space. As an added touch, lifebuoys serve as seafaring decors to complete the “sea” scene. The dining room has a mix of both orange walls and wooden accents that look attractive, undeniably cheery and bold. The only thing that don’t look appropriate are the scribbles of writings randomly covering the nicely painted walls.

 

 

Food:

For our appetizer, we had Kinilaw (PhP 179)—chilled cubed fresh tuna mixed with native vinegar and calamansi. It’s tossed with green apple and spring onions which provided an offsetting zestiness and a great job rounding out the dish. In short, this starter was a mish-mash of straightforwardly satisfying flavors and textures in one. The tuna was so fresh! A must try. 🙂

The Garlic Pork Riblets (PhP 499), too, were laudable with a gratifying meatiness to it. This consisted of pork riblets marinated in native vinegar, salt, and freshly ground black pepper sauteed in butter with lots of garlic. The description on the menu alone looked appetizing and tempting! I guess this will totally work when eaten with garlicky fried rice.

Shrimp and butter have always been the ultimate combo, but the additions of garlic paired with zesty lemon pack this dish with more delicious flavor. Shrimps in Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce (PhP 1600) were superb, made with sweet and tangy shrimps that burst with a decisive snap in your mouth. The super tasty sauce begs to be mopped up with crusty bread. You won’t even need a plate for this one, just dig right in with bare hands (wear gloves for hygiene) or fork them up.

The Crispy Fried Crablets (PhP 345) were crisp and hearty, accented by the aromatics of three types of vinegar as accompanying condiments. Can’t go wrong with this!

Price for Value:

We give two “claws up” to this seafood restaurant in Greenhills. The atmosphere was calm and the servers offered good service. Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps has a delightful menu with divine seafoods, so we’re sure that this relatively new branch will be filled with huge crowds pretty soon. Expect to cash out over P1000 for each shrimp or crab entree, which may be pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for.

    My kids and husband would like it here. They love their seafood. I am not a fan, but I normally eat the meat that restaurants have for people who aren’t a fan of seafood.

    It looks very unique. The bibs are funny, but I get that certain kinds of seafood can be messy, like cracking open crab legs.

    I love that even if the amount is to pricey, still you get what you pay for. I don’t care about the price as long as you will leave the place satisfied.

    My dad loves crabs! Everytime I see them, it reminds me of him. I’m also like him and love crabs and shrimp. I don’t like every seafood out there but the meal you had looks really tasty!
