Shrimps ‘n Barrel: Unli shrimps and wings in Katipunan

We were supposed to visit this newly-opened bar and restaurant in Katipunan last Sunday, but since it’s raining hard in QC, we cancelled our plan. But since it’s raining, it’s also a perfect time to eat a lot. So we decided to visit them last Monday.

NOTHING CAN STOP US FROM EATING! Even the rain! LOL.

This bar and restaurant opened last July 2018. When they messaged us on our Facebook page for promotion, I immediately search their page and what really caught my attention was their dip/sauces.

They are offering a lot of variants but mostly, I think it’s for “pulutan” since it’s a bar and resto. For their menu, here it is:

 

We got their unli shrimps and wings since it’s one of their best sellers. While waiting for our food, we got to roam around the area.

They have a huge space! Some of their customers I think were just living/working/studying around the area since it’s a quite hidden place. Some students and couples are dining here.

They also have cute designs around the wall. You can take some pictures here like what I did. Hehe.

Now, to the main event! The fooooooood yay!

SHRIMPS

The shrimps are fresh from Tondo and Bacolod. YUUUM. As you can see, they serve big portions of shrimps. It’s perfect with their dips/sauces.

WHAT A FEAST!!!!

RATINGS

FOOD – 

The food were served in banana leaves which is a good concept! They serve the food fresh! What caught my attention was their dips! You have a lot of choices for your sauce/dip.

MY TOP PICKS:

  1. Buffalo Wings – Are you a fan of hot/spicy wings? Well this is perfect for you! I think this is the spiciest wings I’ve ever tasted. Ms. Pia told us that they really make it spicy because some customers who are drinking making it their “pulutan“.
  2. Shrimps – The shrimps are fresh. Though it’s not consistent with their sizes, but it’s okay because majority of it were big! Ahhhhhh.

Our favorite dip were their CREAMY SALTED EGG, RED HOT CHILI, and ALIGUE MARINARA.

PRICE – 

One word, SULIT! If you’re a fan of unlimited food, this is for you! Plus point that the price is really reasonable because the food is really great!

SERVICE – 

Customer service is so good! Upon entering the door, one of the staff will assists you. While enjoying the food, they will come to you if you need something. You don’t need to call them! Plus point for this! About their service charge, since it’s sponsored, I really don’t know if they have. But if yes, I think it’s worth it because of the service they are giving to their customers are very good.

AMBIANCE – 

This is a bar and restaurant so the vibe is just cool and light. They have some cute designs in the wall and on the mini bar area, you’ll see different kinds of alcoholic drinks.

LOCATION – 

Although they are in Katipunan, their location is quite hard to find. It’s inside a building and located at the end of it. If you’re familiar with Samgyupsalamat Katipunan, they are in front of it.
