Claw Daddy @ The Shangrila Plaza

[UPDATE: More recent visit to Claw Daddy]
We went to the mall this afternoon to meet the guy who made Koryu's skin for me. (Yup, Koryu has a new look. I'll write a separate post about that later on.) We were also planning on watching The Dark Knight but our plans kinda changed so we just hung out at the mall. We weren't really planning on eating there - remember our budget? Being the easy people that we are, we got enticed by a flyer for Claw Daddy.

Though I had heard about it before, I hadn't tried the restaurant yet. The food looked good, the prices decent, and we were craving seafood so off we went to give Claw Daddy a try.

This was not really in our budget so we decided to go for their seafood platter (it has another name I just don't remember what it is). Basically, it was a huge tray of crabs, lobsters, shrimps, prawns, mussels, and clams. They also threw in a large grilled sausage, marble potatoes, and grilled corn on the cob.

Included in the price were two small bowls of clam chowder - pretty decent, although it could have used more clams - and a pitcher of lemonade, which was really very good (fresh lemons were used).

For the price of PhP1,100++ it was very much worth it!

Nikki got the fish and chips. It was not spectacular but I would order it again.
The best part of it all? The manager put a bib on me. I can't believe I got suckered into donning that bright yellow thing on! It did protect me from the splatter that Jerry made when he cracked the crab, though. So, who's laughing now, huh?
Anyway, if you've got a hankering for seafood, try Claw Daddy at the 6th level of the Shangrila Plaza. Take a peek at the menu if you will.


Oooh, look at the remnants of the "feast."
My only regret? I had to stop eating the crab because I was starting to feel weird. Did I tell you that I am allergic to shellfish, by the way? ;)

  5. well i've been to Claw Daddy a lot of times and i've been thinking of it as a venue for my resignation lunch tomorrow. Good thing you uploaded the menu since the actual menu differs from the one on their website.

    What i like about it is that it's situated at the very end of the ledge away from the typical foodcourt noise near the elevators.
