For starters, sample on the Bacon-wrapped Shrimp to jumpstart your appetite. Try a serving of fried squid as it's also a must! If you’re coming in with your friends, try their signature Bag O’ Mix—packed with crabs, clams, mussels, shrimps, and corn, mixed with a special sauce—boodle fight-style(! Each order comes with unlimited rice. Good value for money? A big yes!) While you're at it, splurge on the spices sold in bottles for you to take home.
