An Extraordinary Dining Experience At Bag O' Shrimps


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?


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.

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.
