Bag O’ Shrimps: Bagfuls of Scrumptious Seafood Goodness!
When In Manila — Seafood lovers unite! All aboard the Shrimp ship as we’ve found a new gem in Tuscany, McKinley that serves one of the best shrimps in town!
Bag O’ Shrimps takes pride of their shrimps (and they are not kidding!) but they also offer an assortment of dishes available. I like the fact that their menu is simple but packed with choices that goes well with their specialty shrimps — and they also offer cheap imported beer!
Bag O’ Shrimps has a nautical feel inside with elements that you can see in a wharf. I love how the place looks so bright and welcoming.

Bag O’ Shrimps stands by EATING WITH YOUR HANDS to get the full BOS experience.
The husband and wife tandem behind Bag O’ Shrimps, Princess and Jandrew Pastoril decided to put up Bag O’ Shrimps to give Filipinos something unique and a give up new dining experience. Talking about the #bagoshrimps experience, eating here means no plates and utensils — it’s about using your hands and savoring every single piece and relish every flavor. But don’t fret, as you can always request for plates, gloves and utensils. But trust me, let your hands do the work!
Enough talking! Let’s get down to the chow!

Talk about the BOMB! We definitely enjoyed this. The added jalapeno gave it a unique twist that we all loved! Plus the dip, which is an in-house concoction, was a superb pair to it.
