On March 4, 2024, Blue Post unveiled its newest and biggest branch yet, introducing a new variety of crab flavors, in collaboration with celebrity chef Bruce Lim. 

Strategically located near the airport, the Blue Post - Buhangin branch aims to attract more tourists to dine and experience a fun and deliciously messy dining experience.

To date, Blue Post has a total of three branches, including the newly opened Buhangin branch.

‘Deliciously messy’ dining experience

Blue Post is known for its "deliciously messy" dining experience where diners use their bare hands and a Blue Post Bib. By embracing the messiness of cracking open crabs and peeling shrimp, Blue Post encourages diners to let loose and fully enjoy the experience of savoring every flavorful bite.

This unique approach not only sets Blue Post apart from other seafood restaurants but also creates a fun and lively ambiance that keeps guests coming back for more.

In Blue Post, we're very serious about our tagline that it's really fun to be messy. 'Yon yung masarap doon.
Anthony Ang, Blue Post's owner

Carrying its concept of "deliciously messy" dining and the belief that "Not all crabs are equal," Blue Post thrives to give the customers its stamp of total dining satisfaction.

“It's really not hard to come up with extra dishes that will kind of give a new touch and feel to it. Like Sir Anthony said, this is a destination spot that everyone does like to eat. So, creating new crab flavors and dishes were kind of fun,” Lim shared.

I wanted to keep the true heart and the feel of Blue Post to keep it itself.
