Who doesn’t love the movie Forrest Gump? Tell me!Tell me!
That’s exactly the reason why Bubba Gump was created – An F.G. fanatic somewhere wanted to play with the idea of Forrest’s whole Bubba Gump Shrimp Company.What else would be in the menu but shrimp (and lots of ’em I tell you, ), seafood, as well as scrumptious desserts that would definitely make Forrest proud!
Anyway, Gail and I went to to Greenbelt last night to experience what the rave was all about.
Bubba Gump interiors
You will not be disappointed with the look of the place. It really feels like you’ve stepped into Forrest’s world! The walls are chuck full of movie memorabilia and knick knacks with a combination of Forrest’s Jenny boat ambiance. I give it 5 cool stars. 😀
They also have a cool way of taking your orders. See the Run Forrest Run placard? That means you’re not ready to call on the waiters yet.
But when you flip it to Stop Forrest Stop, the waiters will scurry towards your table to service you. Pretty cool, right? Don’t take this lightly tough. hehe. Gail and I were fooling around with these signs when a waiter eyed me, thinking I was about to order again.
A medley of coated shrimps! Yummy! Coconut Shrimp, Dynamite Shrimp, Fried Shrimp, Hush Pups, Fries, complete with dipping sauces. Bubba would have definitely liked this one. Don’t worry, the serving is meant for atleast 4 people(trust me!). Haha! Yeah, Gail and I were also wondering why the hell we ordered this SUPER BIG meal.
Captain’s Fish & Chips Beer battered Dory (P367)
As if the Shrimper’s Heaven wasn’t enough, we ordered another dish meant also for 4 people.Haha! Dory fillets fried to perfection.
“That Chocolate Thing”(P300)
A tall glass of warm flourless chocolate cake, topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and drizzled with a raspberry sauce. That’s my dessert. I ended bringing most of it home because the serving was again, HUGE.
Mini Mud Pie (P 137)
Layers of chocolate and vanilla ice cream with chunks of snickers topped with caramel, chocolate syrup and peanuts. Mini in this case is good for one. Haha.
For the verdict: Bubba Gump is perfect for get togethers- with friends, family or colleagues. Although we ended up paying a hefty amount, I would still have to say its affordable because the stuff we ordered was good enough for 8-10 people. Funny because when the waitress asked us “table for two mam?”, I jokingly answered: “Yes, table for two and appetite for 10”. And that’s exactly what we received. 😀
Tonee channeling Forrest Gump. Pingpong anyone?
