River Shrimps on the rocks

I'm back after a 2-week hiatus. Missing my blog buddies and catching up with what's happening in the blogosphere.

Here's my comeback post to tease your tastebuds---river shrimps (swahe) on the rocks. This dish was cooked before my eyes. Fresh shrimps are thrown into a hotbed of rocks and covered for a few minutes. The waiter shakes the pot here and there, and---voila!--cooked shrimps on the spot. Smells good, too! It's actually steamed shrimps (halabos) prepared in a creative way.

I enjoyed this experience at Mesa-Filipino Moderne, The Terraces branch in Ayala-Cebu.

Wow, we have the same subject on our FTF. But the way your shrimp is prepared is kind of unique and interesting. Anyway, however shrimps are prepared, the result is still superb! Love this seafood.
