Just in time for the Kadayawan Festival, Davao’s Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps announced that it will soon open its first branch here in Manila. I was able to sample some of the restaurant’s specialties in a preview event held last Wednesday.
“We are bringing the best food in Davao to offer here in Manila.Our focus is to give whatever the services that we give in Davao to the crowd in Manila. We want to give them the best food quality and best customer service,” said Blue Posts CEO Anthony Ang.
A place for seafood lovers, Blue Posts encourages diners to enjoy their dishes with their bare hands. Food-grade wax paper is used as a plate, along with a plastic bib.
“Here, we only serve fresh crabs and shrimps. We want them to experience the joy of eating. It’s fun to be messy,” Ang added.
Blue Posts also has an all-you-can-drink bar where customers can mix and match six kinds of fruity iced tea drinks.
The restaurant, which has a fisherman’s wharf theme, can accommodate 80 to 100 customers.
Blue Posts will open in September, but a specific date has yet to be announced.
For now, take a look at some of the restaurant’s bestselling items:
If you like something that’s yummy but not to spicy you will definitely love this tomato and cajun paste-based soup with a combination. This is so good that you will definitely go for a second or a third serving.

3. Crab and Shrimp Rolls
4. Crispy Tuna Belly
There’s a crab mallet for your cracking pleasure, though I’d personally prefer a crab cracker, the plier-type of cracker which is way easier to use than a hammer or mallet. To break the tedium, you could order mussels, clams, or shrimps; but then it’s going to ruin the whole “fresh catch seaside fantasy”. I am there exclusively for the crabs – period. These are the stars of the show. Enjoy the Boiling Crabs and Shrimps with three kinds of sauces. There is the Garlic Fried Sauce, the sweet and spicy Asian Sambal Sauce, and the savory Boiling Cajun Sauce.
