After it was established in 2012, The Shrimp Bucket quickly became a go-to spot for anyone who was craving a heaping helping of plump, flavorful shrimp. The restaurant’s trademark method of serving their seafood in plastic bags caught on like wildfire. Called “Bags by the Pound,” these plastic containers are filled with either fresh shrimps, crabs, or mussels, and are then loaded with one of a selection of seven flavors.
Diners then deck themselves out with bibs and gloves dig in with gusto. Eating with hands is encouraged here, and it helps you get the most out of the experience. There’s something thrilling about being able to pry the delicious shrimp free from its shell with your fingers like you would do at home. That’s partially why the resto is so popular with large groups and families -- it has a fun, laid back atmosphere where people can relax and simply enjoy the food and the company.
The Shrimp Bucket is now serving seafood lovers from seven locations: Bonifacio Global City, Nuvali, Greenhills, UP Town Center, il Terrazo Mall, Ayala Malls The 30th, and Circuit Makati.
