This New Resto In Alabang Offers Mouthwatering Paella + Crabs At An Affordable Price
You'll drool over everything.
Chef Robby Goco (of Cyma and Green Pastures fame) did it again. His latest venture with Manny Torrejon and Raymund Magdaluyo¬†is a Spanish restaurant called,¬†Cangrejos Locos, located in Molito, Alabang. It's a casual Spanish restaurant¬†that has a¬†straightforward¬†approach when it comes to their mouthwatering dishes, plus¬†inviting interiors that really set the vibrant mood reminiscent of Spain.
Cangrejos Locos translates to "crazy crabs" which hints that their meaty crab dishes, which are a must-try when you're at Cangrejos Locos. They have the Roasted Garlic Crab with Angulas (Spanish baby eels) and the Crabs Roberto,¬†swimming in savory aligue sauce.¬†
Another stellar dish¬†on the menu is the Barcelona-style paella, a thin layer of paella hence it can be done in less than 15 minutes. Although we love a classic Valenciana (P590) or Paella Negra (P590), the Mushroom and Asparagus paella¬†(P535) is one that's set to wow anyone. It's a vegan paella made with cauliflowers, mushroom sofrito, and crema di tartufo. All of Cangrejos Locos' paellas are good for¬†three people!
If you're willing to splurge a little, you have to try the Rabo de Toro (P900+), this is a fork-tender oxtail dish that has a meaty sauce, served with a side of potatoes. What we love about this is that because it's slow-cooked, everything is soft, falls off the bone, melts in the mouth, plus, it has that¬† "sauce pa lang, ulam na!"¬†goodness.
To end your meal on a sweet note, go for their Churros Con Chocolate (P130), Spanish fritters rolled and dusted in cinnamon sugar, paired with dark chocolate or butterscotch sauce. You can easily finish this in a few minutes if you're sharing with someone else, so you might want to order more than one. Don't worry, it's all worth it!
Cangrejos Locos is located at¬†Molito Lifestyle Center, Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa City. Follow¬†Cangrejos Locos on Instagram for more information!
