What / Where I Ate - Boosog - Revisited

BOOSOG the umpteenth time around.

Boosog Restaurant is a homegrown Cebuano restaurant specializing in authentic Filipino and lutong bahay dishes at unbeatable prices.

UTAN BISAYA PLAIN This vegetable soup, which is truly Filipino and Visayan, is my parents' favorite.  So, everytime we dine in a Filipino restaurant and this kind of recipe is offered in the menu, this is always the default choice of soup 
My rating for Boosog's Utan Bisaya Plain (they call this plain since they also offered ginataan -with coconut milk) is 9 of 10.
BAKED SCALLOPS This dish is one of my all-time favorite, any restaurants where I will be dining. My rating for Boosog's Baked Scallop is 10 of 10.
PANCIT GUISADO Another favorite dish of my parents', most especially my dad, is the pancit - any kind of cooking, as long as the main ingredient is pancit, they will love it. My rating is 9 of 10 - the taste is absolutely our type - not salty and not bland too.
BICOL EXPRESS
It's more of veggies than meat, s…

What / Where I Ate - Crazy Crab

The live crabs that were place inside a small aquarium near the entrance of the restaurant.

The foods that we ordered as captured below:

CRAB AND CORN SOUP
BAKED BUTTERED GARLIC PRAWN
HOT AND SPICY CRAB
I am basically allergic to foods rich in histamines and the number 1 food to avoid is crab.
 Though I have eaten crabs before, which always gives me itch (even with small bites, and when I risked more, rashes, stomach pains and difficulty in breathing were experienced);  I always allow myself to take risks some times.  And that day when we entered Crazy Crab restaurant was one of those challenging days I had to face.
As foodie warriors, we need eating utensils to feed the hungry stomach.  These were the eating "props" that were served to successfully…
