Fish, squid, scallops, mussels, oysters, crabs and prawns, just to name some of our seafood faves. Grilled, stir-fried, baked, deep-fried or raw, we don’t mind having it any way. In our recent EATSperience, we had an interesting diet—a seafood diet (Pun intended. Haha!). Kidding aside, we had a seafood feast at one of the longest crab house restaurants in the Metro. Crabs, oysters and a whole lot more! Join us as we share about Red Crab Alimango House in Greenbelt. Enjoy!
Red Crab Alimango House – Greenbelt!
For the longest time, Red Crab Alimango House has been one of the famous and long time restaurants in Greenbelt 3. Located at the 2nd floor, seafood and crab-lovers should just look for the logo with a red crab, and cravings will definitely be satisfied!
A quick look around Red Crab Greenbelt!
Perfect for casual dining for friends and families who are into having a seafood feast. It was our first time to dine at this branch, and we liked the simplicity of the appearance of the whole restaurant. Their recent renovations have also upgraded the restaurant’s look to catch up with its younger diners.
What’s a seafood restaurant without a display of fresh and live seafood?! Red Crab Alimango House in Greenbelt 3 is the only branch that has this. Diners can choose from the fresh and live seafood selection, and have it cooked the way they like it.
Time to EAT some of Red Crab’s bestselling dishes!
We both love scallops! It is one of the many seafood that we usually take great enjoyment in eating. And their baked garlic butter scallops? Divine! Sweet notes from the rich and creamy cheese with melted butter, covering the pieces of scallops. It was definitely a mouthwatering treat!
The moment this was delivered to our table, we knew that they do have quality oysters. Large, juicy and plump fresh oysters, eaten with a squeeze of lemon and a little bit of vinegar for that great balance.
Red Crab Alimango House does not have pure seafood in their menu. They also have meat dishes to be friendly to those who are allergic or are not just really into eating seafood. We had their beef kaldereta, which we made Baby East eat, and she liked it! Tender beef in tangy and sweet tomato-based sauce with a crunch from the different vegetables.
Deep-fried pampano in Tausi sauce. The flesh of the fried pampano was complemented well by the salty and savory tausi sauce and beans, with citrus flavors from the green, red and orange bell pepper. Mr. Eats almost single-handedly finished this dish! Too good to share, hehe!
And now, for the crabs! Red Crab Alimango house has really impressive quality of seafood. The crab that we had was packed with succulent crab meat. And the Szechuan sauce (adjusted pretty well to the Pinoy taste) was sweet with a surprise spicy kick as the sauce trickled down our throats. We did not waste any part of the crab and we were able to dig in to get the much wanted crab meat.
We were really stuffed to the brim. But of course we didn’t say no to dessert. Their ginataang halo-halo had a lot of filling and it was thick and creamy. It was Baby Eats’ first time to try ginataang halo-halo, she loved it, and it got her singing, “Ginatan, ginatan!”
We always frequent Greenbelt, and Red Crab Alimango House is one of the restaurants that we always pass by but haven’t really gotten the chance to dine at. Glad that we were able to finally try it out here and we really had a great seafood feast! If you love crabs, or any kind of seafood, check out Red Crab Alimango House in Greenbelt 3, and try out their high-quality and great-tasting seafood and many more! That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations, ’till next time!
