I am back!

Ordered the same food, shrimp with mardi gras and a cup of rice. Solo flight ako this time. I thought I can finish the whole thing pero feeling ko lang pala. Take out ang tira! Hahaha...

The food is delicious. Super delicious!

I'm giving it a 4-star instead of 5-star rating because I was seated sa warm area. Medyo uncomfortable yung feeling. I asked kung may vacant sa 2nd floor pero wala. Sad! 128546

Anyway, I am happy with the food and satisfied!

Shrimp 128525

My friend and I had lunch and ordered shrimp with mardi gras sauce. We decided to have it spicy. I just love spicy food!

The outside of the restaurant looks appealing and inviting because of its posters. I work near the area so whenever I pass by, I would stop and instantly feel hungry. Sinasabi ko na lang sa sarili ko, "Tummy bored ka lang. I just ate." 128514

The inside has a simple interior design. A good place to hangout and chat with family/friends/officemates. Although it is not that big and spacious, it still feels comfortable. Sabi nga simplicity is beauty (maisingit lang). 128514

The food was served in a clear plastic bag which is cool. It looks very appetizing. The shrimp and mardi gras sauce is like a bond that can't be broken, a relationship that is bound to last forever -- may forever sa sarap! Whoever started the marriage of shrimp and mardi gras is a genius! The shrimp is fresh and you will know it right away just by how it looks. It is easy to peel using your hands or with utensils. Ito na yung awesomeness na sinasabi! BTW, we're given gloves. And it's best na kamayin!

I super loved it! 128536

Well passby this place when I'm doing some errands and thought gonna try something new,

So ordered,

Chicken chop with cream sauce with garlic rice,

Well perhaps they could grill the chicken in more crispier instead just like steam it? i feel like they only steam the chicken and stir it with the sauce, and perhaps the sauce could make it tastier & also the rice, feels like... They should improve it more..

Just food for thought

I'm a shrimp lover, and their shrimp is super yuuummmmy!
Though the place was too small, might get crowded during lunch time.
Tried their best seller sauce (salty eggsperience), very unique and tasty food. I will definitely come back for it.

Paired the shrimp with standard 8pcs chicken wings, buffalo flavor. They have a dip for it, and it tastes really yummy alternately being eaten with the shrimp over steamed rice.

Buffalo flavor is only mild hot, so it depends if you are not into very spicy chicken wings, then you will like it.

My top 3 must orders: salted egg shrimp, french lemony pepper shrimp, mardi gras mussels. Call to reserve if you can, the place is really small and always packed!

Ever since I learned about Shrimp Bucket, this has been one of my default dining places. 128155 I always go for The Mardi Gras and Salty Eggsperience. 127844 And since some of my friends are allergic to seafood (128546), we get their chicken wings. Sarap din! 128077🏼

If you're on a tight budget, get the mussels with mardi gras sauce. The ground pork is a great filler! And tastes so good too! If you're splurging, get the shrimp!

We really enjoyed our bag of shrimps here. They served us plenty of shrimps in a bag, in a reasonable price. Though their place is a bit cramped, hopefully they extend the area to accomodate more customers. Thankfully we had a chance to have lunch here after doctor's checkup. 128077🏼

If you crave shrimp and other shellfish seafoods this casual dining cuisine will fit your cravings. And did i tell you their price is RIGHT128515!!! So right it wont hurt your wallet to go for seconds.

*Shrimp (Bags by the pound) - this is priced at 560 pesos and good for sharing. Best selection will be the SALTY EGGSPERIENCE! Shrimp drowned in sauce made of mashed salted eggs and a hint of mayo (i cant figure out the rest of the add ons). I know it sounds impossible and disgusting but wait till you try it. It is a mixture i cant believe possible to mix with shrimps. The shrimp and the sauce compliment with each other.
*Buffalo chicken wings - i would say the second best buffalo wings ive ever tried. This is priced at 225 pesos. Crispy with a light kick of hotness.

There were 4 of us and the food we odered were just right. The best way to enjoy food that you cant afford paying alone is sharing it with friends. You can enjoy the food and the restaurant you want (less the price) if you have friends to share the bills with128512. Works for me everytime.

Salted Eggstacy FTW!!! One of the hands-down, best tasting mixes for these seafood-in-a-bag place that have been sprouting about these past year or two.

It's one of my many many pending Looloo reviews since I've been here two years back, but there's a reason why Shrimp Bucket is still going strong after maybe 3 years. It's so darned good. So since my colleague in ABI took me here back Jan 2013, I've been going back here and to the UP Town branch many many times.

The set up of the place is quite simple. In fact, after a not so stellar first visit, my visits ever since have gotten so good. Recommendstions:

SALTED EGGSTACY for about 450g of Shrimp for about P500 or so. If you don't appreciate it, I don't know what's wrong with you. Then again it wasn't in my flavor wheel until I experienced King Bee's Prawn Balls in Salted Egg (& Peking Garden's, David's Tea House, Gloria Maris' and Luk Foo's own take on use of salted egg on seafood). So if you're into Salted Egg, warning--- mapapakain ka ng rice. Sarap i-sawsaw. 128522 5,000,000/5 stars (Uhm you get the peeecture).

Mardi Gras - Chorizo based mix. It's quite good, too, if you don't like the Salted Eggstacy. 4/5

Cereal Shrimp - been to Singapore and tried one of these bad boys? Their version ain't bad. About 75% like the ones I've tried in those restos in SG. 4/5

Already tried the other versions like SOL - which is gata (3/5), and I forget the rest. But I rarely order these na. Try em. You have the option to use mussels instead of Shrimp, too.

Their Calamari or Crispy Squid is pretty good an appetizer as well. But the food arrives fairly quickly. Forget Bag-O-Shrimps. This is the place to go.

It's hard when a friend/officemate is leaving already.. And you're staying! 128546 But on the bright side, despedida lunch!!! 128521128523 Food over friendship haha, kidding!!!! 128541

On her last day, her team + her friend (me 128587) went here for lunch. Aside from Dampa, the only time I was able to experience something like this was in Cebu -- Bucket Shrimps!! And I enjoyed it A LOT!!!128076 So I was expecting a similar experience here at Shrimp Bucket. 128513 I like that they have the same name hahaha baliktad lang! 128517

For our big group we got 5 orders of shrimp, 2 orders of mussels, 2 orders of buffalo wings and 1 SB salad. And one rice each. 128513

The salad was good since the dressing was my fave -- roasted sesame!! I just wish they did not drowned the greens with it! I should have asked them to separate it. Mussels were good but there were just too much butter, ang sakit sa puso! 128546 Chicken wings were just okay. Not too spicy. 128529 For the shrimp we got the salty eggsperience and the mardi gras. The mardi gras was supposed to be spicy but it was not. It was just oily. 128527 But the salty eggsperience was good and addicting! It was tasty and sauce pa lang, ulam na! More rice, please?! It was super gooooood! Wag lang marami! 128525128540

Service was not so good here, though. The place was just small but calling the servers' attention was hard. They were not nice, as well. Also, the place's not sooo clean. 128531

Nothing beats Salted Egg Shrimps and Mardi Gras Baked Mussels!

Always call for a reservation. Place is always jam-packed.

Attendants are very attentive and prompt.

My friend sarah told me about this restaurant located at BGC. she told me that the food is good that i should try it even she had LBM after eating at shrimp bucket and she told me that maybe it's because her tummy has intolerance with shrimp. so Me and my BF had dinner at shrimp bucket last night. we ordered bucket of shrimp in salty egg. the food is delicious that makes me want to order alot of rice with it. the servings is good for 2 to 3 person. hands down with the accommodating staff and beautiful interior of the restaurant. what i hated about it is after eating their food me and my bf's tummy aches. at first i thought it's just because of the amount of rice i ated. Today I woke up at 4am because My tummy aches. so i poooed at 4am and woke up again at 7am just to poo. until now while writing this review I'm still having tummy aches and watery stool. I guess I'm having LBM now because it mades my body weaken and dehydrated. I hope this restaurant is practicing GOOD HYGIENE especially they are handling food. 128557128557128557128557128557128557

It was great! Went back so that my father can enjoy it too. Even the kids love the new taste they experienced with mussels and shrimps. The place is cramped up but the food was worth it.

If you are craving for prawns then this is the close to perfect place to satisfy your tummy. Anyway, just hold on because you might get a crack on your BP since the goodness is hard to resist:)
