Lent season means a lot of us will be abstaining from our everyday pleasures and luxuries. Some of us will be getting a social media detox, and some might be giving up alcohol.
Most people though are giving up pork and meat for the Holy Week and turn to crustacean fare for the time being, which isn’t a bad thing at the slightest! After all, there’s bomb seafood everywhere!
So aside from greens and veggies, bomb seafood is your friend for the Holy Week. Here are spots you can go to:
Bag O’ Shrimps

Branches include: 3F Mega Atrium, SM Megamall, Ortigas, Mandaluyong City
Johnny Kahuku’s Hawaiian Shrimphouse

Branches include: Second Floor, Newport Mall, Resorts World Manila, Newport Boulevard, Newport City, Pasay City

Drop by on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the crab and on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for the oysters and wine. Dig in!
Location: #34 Sgt. Esguerra Ave, Diliman, Quezon City, 1103 Metro Manila
Harbor View Restaurant

This place has been around since the 80s and has celebs as its regular patrons—a testament that this place is pretty darn amazing.
Location: South Dr, Ermita, Manila, 1000 Metro Manila

After all, they’re pretty famous for their lobster rolls. Your favorite seafood in a bun with cheese is as straightforward, convenient, and neat as you can get.
Location: Powerplant Mall, Stall 11, The Grid Food Market, Rockwell Dr, Makati
