I really miss being back in Ortigas!!! 128557 So when there's a rare occasion that would require me to go to Ortigas I would! 10084️

A former colleague of mine came back from Canada and she's now back working in Manila. Since she was on leave that day and one other colleague works in Ortigas, we decided to meet up there instead of Makati.

We were having a hard time choosing where to eat when we saw Bag O' Shrimps and it became one of our choices. In the end, since we weren't too keen on Filipino food and ramen, we ended up here.

I really like their nautical concept and it's not just the usual boat nautical theme, but a seafood catching theme! 128514 The light fixtures are within the cages (which I think catches crabs? Hehe not 100% sure).

We got their combo which is the Poppa version. 128514 It's shrimp, clams and mussels with corn and sausages with the Bag O' Momma sauce. We chose Mild spiciness because one of us doesn't have a high tolerance for it. 128514 For only a little over a thousand pesos, you get 15-18pcs of shrimp, 250g of clams and 250g of mussels! 128077🏼 plus you get 2 cups of rice and 2 glasses of iced tea! Sulit!!

We added clam chowder, crispy calamari and 2 extra rice. 128514 They really let people eat with their hands. They only give utensils for the soup. You get gloves so it's not as messy. 128521

Seafood lovers anyone? 128587🏻128587🏻128587🏻

I first had a seafood boil in Singapore early this year. And bf and I loved it so when he came home (he's an OFW), we looked for a restaurant serving the same menu and this one at Megamall serves the same one we had in SG. Good thing it's close to where we live too.

We ordered the Big Poppa seafood boil with all the seafood plus sausage and corn in Big Momma sauce (chilli) (P1,099). I also got a clam chowder as appetizer. The chowder is really good. Yummy and filling. Good for one but pwede na for sharing if you want to save space for the main.

We didn't wait long for our order. I wasn't done with the chowder yet when it arrived. Wash your hands at the sink coz it's easier to use your hands when eating seafood. They placed a big mat on our table and served the seafood in a plastic. We put the rice and seafood on the mat and ate the budol-fight way. Seafood is still super hot. So yummy! No need for rice for me coz of the corn. But the sauce was so good I had to eat it with rice. There goes my diet of no rice/bread.

We love this meal so much it's on our Most Fave list. If only they have crabs…

We tried the shrimp in bag o'mamma flavor and the shrimp popcorn, very appetizing and serving is okay. Will definitely go back. Not just sure if its because its New Year's day but the service is pretty slow, other than that everything is okaaay! 127844

Two and a half hours at the gym and I was starving. I ate breakfast before going to the gym but it seemed like I went on fasting for a day or two. 🙄 #bulateproblems LOL

I can't think of any other places in Megamall where I can pig out but Bag O' Shrimps. I got my usual order, Shrimp and Mussels, Bag O' Mama flavor, extra spicy and a cup of rice (kunyari).

They have this paper that they roll out on the table and provide you with gloves so it'll be easier for customers to eat shrimps (I don't like using spoon and fork when I am eating seafood).

My food got served in 15 minutes and I was eating like a kraken, unleashed. The shrimp and mussels were perfectly cooked and they're swimming in a delicious and spicy sauce with a lot of diced garlic. EXTRA RICE!!

Service has always been great here. Fast and friendly would be the easist way to describe how the team operates.

Definitely not my last 128524 to think its my 5th time at Bag O' Shrimps!

I heard of this restaurant before from a officemate.I went to this small seafood restaurant with my officemates after office.No need to line up.It took us 3 to 5 minutes to get a table.

We ordered Momma Shrimps with garlic and Spicy Sauce for P595.It is so good.Our order is good for 3 people.But we also ordered Fish N Chips or Fish Finger with Chips.We peeled and ate the shrimps using our hands or plastic gloves that was provided by the waitress.The waitress also provided with Adult bib to avoid any oily in our tshirt.The quality of the shrimps are fresh.The taste of shrimps are good.There are no table cloth for the table.The restaurant used brown paper for their table.The plating of the food is inside the plastic.That's why the restaurant is Bag O Shrimp.The price of their dish is not expensive.Just right.

I recommend this restaurant to anyone is interested or likes to eat Seafoods.I will try to eat other dishes next time.

This is the place for thise who want spicy food all flavoring have a kick of spiciness even the mildest one i cant take it. The shimp bucket is far better than here. Service is fast bcoz not many people despite of sunday lunch time. The most turn off is very expensive better eat at buffet resto bcoz they have same price.

Had a great time with my team yesterday at Bag O' Shrimps. I suggested to have lunch here because I was confident that they will all love their seafood offerings.

We got 6 bags of shrimps all with spicy Bag O' Mama sauce and 6 bags of spicy mussels cooked in garlic butter. We all ate with our hands and left the place with our table looking like a super typhoon passed by it. The food was great as always and we all had a fun time - boodle fight!

Thank goodness Bag O' Shrimps has another branch, and one that is close to where I live! Everybody (except those who are allergic to it) loves shrimps. Who would not??? Seriously? Lol anyway. If you are starting to run out of good places to have shrimps, well dude I suggest you go to Bag O' Shrimps and try their best selling Bag O' Mama, a medium spicy, 453grams of all shrimps! Just add rice and gosh, you'll definitely love it. Just a warning though, Bag O' Mama is a medium spicy but for someone like me who loves spicy food, it was really spicy. So if you can't tolerate too much spiciness, opt for the mild spicy flavor.

This Bag O' Shrimp branch is bagging some bad reviews compared to the one in Global City. Regardless, I still opted to try this branch.

I tried the Bag O' Mama, very hot, which I really did enjoy. It was very spicy and the shrimp was cooked really well. It was so good I ended asking for extra rice.

If you're looking for options, this is not the place. I tried their clam chowder which was really bland and flat. Halos walang laman.

Their calamari was okay.

Seafood festival here!

Price is reasonable, but i just keep on complaining. I felt like i just got from fishing... Hmmm when in fact i just came from the office. Just not comfortable with using my hands all the time.. Some kind of maarte here now. But hey we are in the mall. Rice is served in a small cup. No plates! The finger foods we ordered ( fried asparagus , sweet potato fries, ) are ok, but when we asked for dips they are charging us extra P20. Hwat? So tiis sa tamang lasa 128540

First things first - how can this establishment operate without issuing Official Receipts???? They have the tape receipts but cannot issue the manual receipts with your Name or Company name! Next thing - they don't have credit card facilities ... and our bill was around p5000 and so I had to dish out the cash!!!! 128545128545128545

We were a group of 7 and ordered quite a wide selection - shrimps, calamares, dynamite w/ crab (by the way - don't be fooled, it's just a kani stick and maybe the chef was too lazy to remove the seeds of the green sili which made the dish just too hot), clam chowder soup, shrimp popcorn. Yup a bit expensive since our usual bill during Sunday lunches will be around p3000 - 3500 ... And ambience-wise, geez ... It's just like one of those small eating joints in a mall - nothing special!

Taste was so-so .... nothing spectacular or special really .... Staff were not too attentive really and "clammed" up when we complained about their lack of ORs. I plan to launch a formal query in BIR since as an entrepreneur, i know an establishment should have printed OR booklets before they are allowed to operate.

We're not going back ... Nope nope!

They lack the most important thing in serving seafood (or any food, for that matter) -- freshness. We ordered 2 bags of shrimp and 2 bags of mussels, so we got a taste of all their flavors. They all lack taste. It was like the sauce was made then the shrimps/mussels separately cooked and just tossed in the sauce. Add to that that the mussels and shrimp were of really really poor quality. Definitely not coming back... EVER!
