Shrimp Bucket, the answer to all your shrimp cravings, Turns 5

Shrimp Bucket, the answer to all your shrimp cravings, Turns 5

We love shrimp, and that’s why Shrimp Bucket has thrived in the country five years after it opened its doors. Established in 2012, Shrimp Bucket has become the go-to shrimp-delight-experience. Last December 9, 2017, Shrimp Bucket celebrated its fifth anniversary with a cookout under the stars at the Open Space Parking, 39th corner 9th Streets, BGC. Attended by media representatives and guests, it was a feast of ribs, wings, and of course, shrimps, for only P1,000. It was an evening of festive moods, great food, and the pleasure of eating shrimp with your hands.

Shrimp Bucket is the answer to our craving for a heaving helping of plump, flavorful shrimp, which the restaurant serves in plastic bags – a way of serving that caught on, what with the bountiful look and the slight and welcome heft the “bags by the pound” make. These plastic bags are filled with either fresh shrimps, crabs, or mussels, and are then loaded with one of many mouth-watering (we are not kidding) flavors: Mardi Gras, Salty Eggsperience, Coco-sol, Frenchy Lemon Pepper, The Spaniard, Sebastiana, and Coco-Curry.

Teams of cooks prepared the restaurant’s popular dishes during the cookout on December 9, while patrons enjoyed unlimited bags of shrimps drenched in their favorite Shrimp Bucket flavors.

There’s something immediately satisfying about eating with gloves and bibs – you literally dig in with your hands in a plate-to-mouth session, at the risk of smearing your clothes with sauce (proof of delight). Pry the shell off the shrimps and wade it in more sauce. Repeat and be even happier. No phones getting in the way (your hands are too preoccupied for that), just you and the company of friends and loved ones. A relaxing dining experience.
