I love seafood, but I never prepare them at home because my son is allergic and since I am at an age where I need to watch my cholesterol. Having seafood particularly shrimp or prawns is a rare treat.
When Zomato Philippines organized a Foodie Meet-up at the The Shrimp Bucket I became very excited. Located at the 2nd floor of Il Terrazzo, Tomas Morato Avenue Corner Scout Madrinan Street, South Triangle, Quezon City, this branch is the 3rd of the fast growing The Shrimp Bucket chain (one in BGC and the other at UP Town Center). The Il Terrazzo branch is cozy, intimate and elegant, I estimate that the venue can accommodate 40 people comfortably. I also notice they have their fair share of celebrities who frequent the place since is close enough to a popular TV network.
Fair warning for those who have allergies. The menu at The Shrimp Bucket would make you want to live dangerously. (wink-wink).
Before we get to the meal, I would like to mention this wonderful drink they served called Orange Passion Iced Tea. I recommend this for those who would enjoy a refreshing thirst quencher, at the start of the meal, since in the Philippines it is always so warm. The perfect mix of sweet orange and tea really hits the spot.
