An Extraordinary Dining Experience At Bag O' Shrimps

Friday, October 09, 2015




I look forward to "first times". When I received an invite from ZomatoPH for a foodie meetup last October 2, I immediately confirmed my attendance. It was my first time to dine with my fellow Zomato foodies. Our food destination was Bag O' Shrimps. The idea of eating with my hands in a mall restaurant was as exciting as my first foodie meetup.


The Restaurant




Bag O' Shrimps is located at the 3rd level of SM Megamall's Mega Atrium in Mandaluyong. You'll get to enjoy New Orleans feast right inside the mall.




It felt like I was transported somewhere near the wharf when I entered the restaurant. The design of the interior was well thought of.  Wait, am I really inside the mall?!


The Food




We were given a Bag O' Shrimps plastic apron and a set of plastic gloves. Now, are you ready for the feast?


Appetizers



Sweet Potato Fries, PhP115



Fried Oysters, PhP165



Crab Bomb Stick, PhP185

I enjoyed the Crab Bomb Stick the most. The deep fried chili stuffed with crabstick and cheese wrapped in lumpia wrapper is truly the bomb!! 


Seafood Bags

This is the highlight of my lunch. We get to choose what goes into the bag. Seafood choices include shrimps, crabs, clams and mussels. The flavors are Bag O' Momma, Lemon Pepper, Cajun and Garlic Butter. Spiciness level ranges from mild to very hot. You can also throw in some corn and sausage.

Clams in Garlic Butter Sauce



Mussels in Lemon Pepper Sauce


All the seafood bags are gastronomically satisfying. An order is meant for sharing but I can devour it all by myself. 


Other Dishes On The Menu



Clam Chowder Soup, PhP115



Lemon Pepper Shrimp Pasta, PhP290



Fish Fillet With Maple Syrup, PhP265



Sausage Omelette, PhP230



Seafood Jambalaya, PhP240


Sadly, the other dishes in the menu disappointed my tastebuds. I always order Clam Chowder Soup whenever it is available and Bag O' Shrimps' was the most disappointing. It was salty and bitter.  The Seafood Jambalaya was too peppery. The first taste that linger in my mouth was oil when I took a bite of the Fish Fillet and the maple syrup doesn't go well with the fish. The Sausage Omelette is too salty for me. I am not fond of seafood pasta but the Lemon Pepper Shrimp Pasta is something that I liked.

  1. I'd like to try any bag of shrimps with sausages and corns.. A friend posted her photo of a bag of shrimps and I asked where she had it but i guess she was so busy she didn't reply.
