We agreed to meet up after Christmas Day and she told me that fellow bloggers K and C will be joining us too. I've never met K and C in person despite knowing of them and following them on social media for years. I always love meeting new friends so I was so excited for this particular lunch date. D suggested we go to Choobi Choobi in Panay Avenue which is one of her favorite restaurants at the moment. I've never heard of Choobi Choobi and after a quick search, I learned that this restaurant originated from Cebu and they're known for their bags of shrimps. Hooray!
Each bag comes with a generous amount of shrimps and corn. The sauce was really delicious. It's garlicky and totally umami. I literally soaked my rice with so much sauce and I loved every bit of it. The shrimps were very fresh too that the shell easily slid off without any fuss.
Our lunch line-up was very simple yet it was one of the highlights of our trip. With just the bag of shrimps, you seriously do not have to order anything else but if you must, I recommend the Patrick Star's Baked Scallops (Php. 210) as well as the Choobi Pata (Php. 445 / 465) too. We had such an amazing meal that I ended up convincing the entire family to change our initial New Year lunch venue to Choobi Choobi. Luckily, it was quite easy convincing my family with the help of sending some photos for visual support. So, 3 days after our 1st meal at Choobi Choobi we were back again and we ordered pretty much the same things we ordered during our first visit and then some more!
Now, I will make it a point to visit Choobi Choobi whenever I'm back in Manila for a visit. It's really the place to be for fresh shrimps, seafood and delicious meat dishes too. Thanks D, K and C for taking us here!
Choobi Choobi is located at 102 Panay Avenue, Quezon City 1103. Call them at 372-2654.
