Shrimp Bucket x Burnt Edges in Makati

by - Saturday, November 02, 2019

Our favorite seafood restaurant has a new branch and a new baby in Makati! 

Shrimp Bucket x Burnt Edges just opened in October 2019, offering a variety of dishes cooked in several different cooking techniques, with the concept of #BoilMeetsGrill. 

At first I thought about writing a post per restaurant, but since we experienced enjoying dishes from both of them on our table, it's best to combine them and let you see what it's  really like. 

Chilli Tortillas P245

We started our meal with the chilli tortillas, chilli con carne topped with melted cheese, and served with crispy, tortilla chips. I wasn't really a fan of chilli before as I find its flavors to be too overwhelming, but this one was different. It had a more subtle combination of flavors, just enough to get you craving for more. 

Tofu Tower P295

I'm sooo into tofu, but this tofu tower is probably one of the best versions I've had. The tofu was dried up that gave it a nice crisp texture to it. It also had flavors you would not expect to get from your ordinary tofu dish, plus a bit of spice. 


We were also served with an assortment of skewers (prices vary). They have soft shell shrimps, wagyu cubes, pork, and other chicken skewers. I did not get to try all of them, but I did enjoy the shrimps and wagyu cubes, of course.

Chicken Coco P295

One of my favorites from Burnt Edges was their chicken coco. The chicken was not overcooked, and the sauce was just so good! It had a creamy texture, that rich taste of coconut milk, and amazing flavors.

Shrimp in Salty Eggsperience Sauce

For those of you who don't know, Shrimp Bucket was the first to introduce the salted egg shrimps in the country, which is now one of their signatures. It was a bit different from what I have been having from other restaurants. Its sauce was not as thick and lumpy, which also made it less tiring and numbing to the tastebuds. It lacked a bit for me in terms of flavor, but good enough to still enjoy.

Mussels in Mardi Gras

We also have mussels in mard gras sauce, which was okay for me. It was good, but I still prefer the classic spicy tahong and baked mussels with cheese.

Pork Belly P395

The grilled pork belly is another dish I really got to appreciate during our visit, and I think the photo alone can pretty much justify that. It was a simple dish made right, both in flavor and tenderness.

Burnt Edges also serves a complete set of dips: spiced vinegar, soy vinegar, peanut sauce, cilantro fish sauce, chili garlic, and garlic aioli. It was actually exciting to try out all the dips. You'll get to have quite a journey pairing each of the dips with your chosen entrees.
