An American Tradition Experience at ClawDaddy Bonifacio High Street

The first time I got to taste ClawDaddy‘s food was in 2011 at the Appetite Restaurant Festival at the ShangriLa Plaza Mall. From that point I have been longing to visit their restaurant. So on a rainy fourth of July, while the traffic is bad, I hang out with friends at ClawDaddy Bonifacio High Street. It was very timely because I got to experience an American tradition as we had the Seafood Boil in a Bag — a regular fare in the US when having picnic during holidays, especially in summer.

Americans love cooking outdoors and when they do, one of the usual food served on the table aside from barbecue is a boiling pot of seafood and sausages. The mix causes a play of flavor, that’s interesting and appetizing. That’s exactly what we enjoyed.

The Seafood Boil in a Bag is served in a food-grade plastic bag, opened before us, letting the steam out, causing the aroma to fill the air. That made me want to dig in immediately. I inspected the entire bag and saw crabs, prawns, clams, sausage and corn. It’s a seafood feast indeed! Every seafood lover like me will definitely go crazy with just the sight of what’s in there!

I have to admit I fell in love with the former because it helped the seafood and sausage flavor come alive. The spices used on the latter somewhat overpowered the foods’ flavor. But I think it will go well with streamed rice. I actually had to forgo rice that night, not because I’m on a diet. I just want the unadulterated American experience. For P1,495, you can never go wrong with the Seafood Boil in a Bag. It’s sumptuous and really satisfying to the palate and the belly.

But of course, we also tried Claw Daddy’s other offerings. We actually started our meal with several appetizers – corn on the cob, buffalo wings, salad and ballpark nachos — all equally yummy! In fact, I’m already satisfied with the starters alone. I loved the nachos with its generous cheese poured over. The play of color — red and yellow — is a unique way of presenting the food. It’s also not soggy unlike other nachos that I had before. I highly recommend it. I also enjoyed the corn on the cob, it’s not tough to nibble through the kernel and is equally tasty. I found myself having more towards the end of the dinner.


Still it won’t be the same experience without the Bolling Bag experience. There are other options available for this offering. You can ditch the prawns and just go all crabs — that’s the Maryland Crab Boiling Bag — a mix of fresh water crabs, sausage, potatoes and corn. If you want shrimps thrown in, order the Louisiana Crab and Shrimp Boiling Bag, all for the same price.

The customization continues with an all-shrimp bolling bag or the shellfish boiling bag for P995. Both bags had sausage, corn and potatoes in it. Whichever you choose, it’s a great American tradition available only at Claw Daddy. Head over to the one nearest you. Aside from their branches at ShangriLa Mall and the Bonifacio High Street, there’s a Claw Daddy at SM Mall of Asia, Nuvali  and soon, Subic!
