Cebu Eats: Mr. Crab’s UNLIMITED Crabs for ₱399

Apparently, it’s the best time to be alive and living or residing in the Queen City of the South. With affordable all-you-can-eat eateries and restaurants sprouting around the metro, everyone — especially those who love to eat — is a winner, privileged with so many options. And perhaps just like you, I literally giggle every time I see anything unlimited.

Adding to our eat-all-you-can list is Mr. Crab with UNLIMITED Crabs served in four flavors. Currently, it has 3 branches in Cebu: (1) Tambayan sa Lacion in Consolacion, (2) Tambayan sa Bulacao, and (3) Capitol Site – near NBI / Capitol.

  1. Hello Chief Editor, please update the information above. I went here last thursday with my friend and the 199php quoted is only a promo and wala nadaw. The actual price is 399php for the steamed crabs only. The rice platter is 120php and is only good for 2 serving. Not sulit since the crabs are so small. I do not recommend this. Please update the info above para sa uban pud nag expect na 199php lang ang unli crabs. Thanks

  2. 199 is only for the steamed crabs, no flavor. If you want it flavored, you have to add P50. However, the additional P50 is good for one flavor only. Therefore, you will not have the chance to taste all flavors if you are eating alone. Rice is priced at P35 per cup, softdrinks at P35 per bottle and 500ml bottled water at P35.

  3. Mr. Crabs in Tambayan sa Lacion 199 unli crab is a hoax! Like we arrived at the area mga 10:20am then wla pa cla nka ready ky nag steam pa daw cla sa crabs so kami willing to wait teh! Mga hapit na 12 wla pa jud nya naa man mi kids dala amoa lang sa gipakaon sa native chicken nga food stall didto. Mga 12:20pm tuana nanuol nami ky murag nag serve na cla only to find out wlay 199 ky nahurot na daw! Wow! Duha ra ka tao nakakaon? Seriously? Ila daw available is kato nang 399! Wtf! Nghuwat mi sa wala! So bisan lagot nami chill lang ghapon ky wlai mahimz nipalit na lang mig soft drinks sa ilaha 7 up nga 8oz pero wla namu dayona ky tag 35 pesos! Jusmio! Inana nga klase nga kan-anan dli deserve tagaan ug luna dri sa sugbo ph! Kanang mkabayan nga kan-anan ang dapat ma featured dri dli kanang mga kwartahan lng ilang mga fellow Cebuanos! Kbye!
