Throw Your Seafood-Loving Self a Party With These Platters
The Murang Seafood Platter lives up to its name with sets that start at P999.
(SPOT.ph) It’s the long weekend, which means it’s time to enjoy a special treat for surviving a grueling work week. But we don’t blame you if you don’t feel like whipping up a full-blown meal and you just want to spend the next few days catching up on sleep or on your current fave series. Feeling lazy and kind of missing the dampa experience—buttered crabs, shrimps, and all? Here’s the next best thing: The Murang Seafood Platter’s sets.
You can get a Mixed Seafood Platter (P999/good for two, P1,999/good for four, P2,999/good for six), with shrimps, mussels, and crabs (alimasag) cooked in their signature Cajun sauce, and have it delivered straight to your doorstep. They also have special sets like Baby Lobsters (P2,999), Red Lobsters (P2,999/six to eight pieces), and Crab Claw (P1,999/half-kilo) if you’re feeling indulgent. And if you want a bit of everything, there’s also the Premium Platter (P1,599), which is basically the mixed seafood set plus baby lobsters. All platters come with corn and baby potatoes, and they also offer other sauce variants such as Garlic Butter and Sweet n Spicy for P50 each.
Their seafood are caught in Palawan, Roxas, and Zamboanga and shipped to Manila. “Our crabs arrive in Manila still alive, ensuring the freshness of our products,” Mao Panganiban, co-owner of The Murang Seafood Platter, tells SPOT.ph.
Having seafood lunch at their Pampanga home was something that Panganiban and co-owner Cazel Gapuz looked forward to each weekend. But with the quarantine in place, they ended up being stuck in the Metro and replicated the experience in the city, just because they missed their lunches in the province. “We actually didn’t expect good-quality seafood considering it was very affordable for the price range [in Manila],” says Panganiban, and adds, “It was so good not to share it with the whole world.” Just after they had their seafood meal, Gapuz made a logo for fun while Panganiban thought of a name for a seafood delivery service, and the first thing that came to mind was “The Murang Seafood Platter.” They ended up launching their business the following day.
The Murang Seafood Platter has also been extending help to frontliners. Panganiban says that they regularly give grocery bags to riders, and they currently have been sending platters to families of overseas Filipino workers.
