Dining Destination: The Red Crab Alimango House12:01 AM
After some cocktails and some 70's and 80's songs from the live band at Bar 360, Olive and I decided to walk around the mall and shop before dinner. We stopped by Michael Antonio and Giordano and picked up a few items and then headed to The Red Crab Alimango House. It is near the entrance of the casino and adjacent to The Wine House and across New Orleans.
We had hors d'oeuvres at the bar and we ordered 4 different kinds (tuna sushi, cheese spring roll, shrimp cocktail and garlic chicken). The serving were way too cute to eat but of course we had to eat them still. Haha!
|This is my friend Olive while we were waiting for our orders.|
|The lighting fixture inside the restaurant is interesting.|
|Chicharon Bulaklak Php175 (around US$4) for appetizer. This is not for the picky eaters. This dish is made of pig intestines and deep fried to make it crunchy and usually eaten dipped in vinegar. The last time I had this was almost 6 years ago.|
|Seafood Tortang Talong with Aligue Php198 (around US4.50). This is made of roasted eggplant (talong) with different kinds of chopped seafood and crab fat. I didn't eat the side dish we call achara (pickled vegatables usually papaya).|
|Steamed Salmon - Kimchi Rice (Olive's Order) Php385 (around US$9). The salmon was cooked just right and the rice was yummy. We weren't able to finish the rice because it was too much.|
MUST TRY: House Blend Iced Tea - with complimentary refill.
VERDICT: Nothing to rave about the restaurant but I will be back for the sole reason that the staff were nice and catered to my every request. Haha! Price range is also good and all Resorts World member is entitled to outright 5% discount.
