Blue Post Boiling Crabs & Shrimps does it again! It started as a small branch along JP Laurel Avenue just beside Davao Water District, SM Lanang Premier and now continue to grow both inside Davao as they open their 3rd branch at SM City Ecoland Davao and out to the Metro, expanding its soon-to-open branches namely in SM Mall of Asia ( just open last January 23, 2017), SM Megamall, O-Square Greenhills Shopping Center and Seascape Manila.




I am a huge fan of Blue Post, sadly I never had the chance to write a post about it when I first visited the place, but still I have my old photos from their first branch. I keep it for self keeping. C'est la vie! :)


This is after our event at Acropolis Disco when we have our thanksgiving party.

A home-grown Davao brand, and I am very proud that Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps (BPBCS), continues to win the hearts of not just Dabawenyos but also every Filipino. #ProudDavao


Media Launching and Opening of Blue Posts Crabs & Shrimps at SM City Branch

Originally, BPBCS envisioned to be a bar by a group of college friends and not just your typical restaurant or a go-to seafood restaurant in Davao. It was when couple and owner Anthony and Jennifer Ang were travelling the west coast of USA and found themselves in the famous Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, California that BPBCS had to give a new and improve form of services to their customers. Having an idea that a growing market for casual-dining seafood restaurants is so "click" in a sense of giving out services and to make their customers having that feel-at-home ambiance that they can be messy with a finger-licking kind of dining just like at home doing "kamay-kainan".


Prepare for your convenient: A  crab mallet, claw cracker, water for washing hands, wet tissue and a bib


That's why they encourage diners to use their hands while dining to get that fulfilling fun and messy eating adventure. Don't worry a food-grade wax paper is set before you and a Blue Posts bib - the messier you got with every bite, the better your dining experience becomes.

And Messy-eating was born plus after you dine, you can write on the walls of the restaurant.



Diners can choose from a wide roster of seafood placed in a boiling bag mixed with their signature Blue Posts Cajun Special Sauce with adjustable heat factors (regular, mild, or spicy hot), all of these are guaranteed fresh - exactly from SEA TO TABLE!


  • CRABS IN SALTED EGG - a fresh catch coated in a very special Blue Posts batter and garlic fried to perfection added with cubes of salted egg, offers a distinct notes between the salted egg and nutty garlic without changing the taste of the crabs.

(Price vary based on market rates)


  • Boil Shrimps - served with sausages, corn cobs and potatoes.

    This is my favorite! Another winner from their selection, what I like about this dish is, very rich in spicy sauce and the garlic bits adding flavors without compromising the fresh and clean notes of the shrimps. For me it's PERFECT to my palette!

Alongside these freshly caught dishes are the #ProudlyDavao dishes such as Native Chicken, Sinuglaw with Green Apples and Pomelo Salad.
