A Crab Feast

Last Friday night, I had the pleasure of joining a group of food bloggers in a crab feast. Our gracious host, The Red Crab Alimango House – Lucky Chinatown Branch, was more than happy to send us to crab heaven by serving us with not just one nor two but a total of 24 crab dishes for dinner!

There’s also a big fountain in front of the mall that’s good for picture taking. I love that my photos taken there appear as if I was in a foreign country. I also noticed that it seems independent from the rest of Quezon City (slums, bad traffic and all). People who frequent the place will certainly understand what I mean by that.
