- There is That Bite!
One does not need to be a Michelin Chef to qualify a best textured shrimp. What I know is, one keeps on being messy with shrimps at Blue Posts when he knows how shrimp should be sautéed. There is always that one familiar satisfying bite which your teeth, tongue and jaw unanimously enjoy! When there is an adjective as “fork tender” for steak, let it be coined that there is a “teeth tender” experience for shrimps. It is at Blue Posts.
2. The Sambal Sauce
I stop asking for the vinegar dip when they start offering this. I have always been a lover of Asian flavors. When I had my Singapore-Penang trip last 2016, I went home as a certified Sambal lover. That sweet, salty yet spicy sauce slather on an al dente bag of sauteed shrimps? Ahhh Salivating! When the crew goes to the table and asks: Refill Sir? “Ano po, Garlic Lemon Butter, Sambal or the Blue Posts Boiled?” You know my answer!
3. The Nautical Interiors
The ambiance engulfs you that every edible portion you try as you dine with your bare hands, is all fresh and prepared thoughtfully. I smell the sea inside. Perhaps it is because of the fishing nets, paddles and life rings which your sensation associates to a dining table set just in front of the briny atmosphere of the sea shore waiting for the fresh catch. It feels composed inside. Not until the bag is finally open for partaking with that shrimp-infused redolence. Attack! Mess up!
4. The “Messing Costume”
One of the crew approached me and offered to don my bib. I felt like a master. There is just this satisfaction boost when you feel like you are being served with things you know you can manage to do but someone offered it sincerely and you do not have a choice but to give in. I remember that as intense as I salivate whenever I think of the shrimps. When the food-grade wax paper is rolled out. When our gloves snugly fit between fingers. The drama just makes the whole experience more gastronomically memorable! These actually appear to be more of ritual than function for me since my appetite knows seemly that I would still choose to be messy despite all the donning. These are Instagram props as well!
Indeed, there is a lot of fish in the ocean of seafood restaurants. But, there is an only-of-its-kind shrimp diner in town serving exceptional bags of sautéed, sauced shrimp you love to get mess with. Devour.
Mess up responsibly.
