In my eyes, crabs have never looked so good. It was very tempting to dig in but my allergies reminded me not to, I have this rare allergy on crustaceans, rare because unlike others, I don’t get red rashes, instead I vomit whenever I smell or taste a bit of it.
So on my behalf, I sent my super supportive husband to Red Crab Alimango House in Binondo, and here I am, making this post through his eyes.
He came home quite late and very tired that I feared he might suffer from stroke (heaven forbid!) because I knew that he ate too many crabs that night, okay TOO MANY is an understatement. The event started at 7PM and by 9PM he texted me saying that he still has to eat 11 crabs, “11 CRABS?!?!” yes. And he ate everything with so much gusto.
Okay, moving on, the Red Crab Alimango House in Binondo recently launched “Red Crab 24K” — crab lovers can now enjoy their crabs in 24 new recipes. I didn’t know crabs can be cooked in so many ways! From a probinsiyano who ate ginataan or steamed crabs all his life, this treat was somehow new and interesting! He is born and raised in Samar, by the way, so he definitely knows what GOOD CRAB is.
Of the 24 crab dishes served on the table, he has 5 favorites:
Roasted Garlic Crab
Fidel Pepper’s Crab
Crab Adobo sa Buko
These were just his favorites, but there is more! Not included in the post though they are really worth mentioning are:
