Crab n' Crew answers your seafood cravings!

If you had been visiting my blog for quite some time, you know I go to work on Visayas Ave. in Quezon City, which is a long stretch that is, thankfully, home to many foodie destinations. I've gone to most of them in my 12 years of working in the area, 
and I sure do have favorites that I keep going back to. 
Last week was my first time at Crab n' Crew Restobar,  though, and I had a great time that sent me wondering what took me so long? I had two co-worker-friends with me and we ordered a bag of assorted seafood and rice for lunch. 

Butter Seafood Bag 
They have three other flavors of this - Bicolana, Chili and Szechuan.
We chose the buttered bag of seafood consisting of crabs, shrimps, mussels and squid, plus a cut-up cob of sweet corn. The seafood were fresh -- with meat that's both firm and tender and packed with the slightly salty and mildly sweet flavor from butter. I thought I would not be able to finish my cup of rice because it looked like a lot to me but I finished it in record time, thanks to the lip-smackingly delicious bounty from the sea. The only challenge, as you may have guessed, is removing meat from the crab and shrimp shells, but on the other hand, the anticipation makes one all the more appreciate the "reward" of something fresh and savory. 
 The only thing I don't like about Crab n' Crew's bag of seafood is their use of plastic. I wish they would just put the crabs, shrimps and everything in a huge wok or bowl, or even a stainless pail. It's because plastics, when heated, leach chemicals into food, that's why 
I've long ditched our plastic plates, bowls and glasses at home.
A bag of seafood, by the way, is good for 3-4 persons.

One of my two friends ordered this but she wasn't so happy about it, 
though I forgot her explanation.

What a great lunch it was -- quite unlike most of our previous lunches out when we would have either pasta and/or chicken, or pizza, or burger and fries. Never mind that we didn't end our meal with something sweet as there was hardly any room left in our tummy.
I want a second time at Crab n' Crew real soon and surely, I would want you, 
folks, to try and enjoy it here, too. Aside from good food, service is
friendly and fast. Prices are reasonable, too!
Happy eating!
