Continuing from my recent Asean Basketball League post, here are more photos from my trip to Makati City in the Philippines. Brunei Barracudas team owner Zaty treated us to dinner at the very cool Bubba Gump Shrimp Co seafood restaurant that’s themed after the movie Forrest Gump. The first Bubba Gump outlet was opened in 1996 on Cannery Row in Montery, California and have opened outlets outside of the USA in Japan, Bali, Hong Kong and Malaysia including Quezon City also in the Philippines. Another well known One Bite & You’re Hooked seafood franchise Fish & Co is just round the corner.
Not to be fooled by appearances. The second you walk through the door you're greeted not only with a smile and a friendly reception but upon entering the first time, you'll be in awe just how elaborately detailed and incredibly spacious the establishment is.
Nothing zero about Bubba Gump Shrimp Co seafood restaurant
The ping-pong bat/paddle inside each pail is their drinks menu. How incredibly cool is that idea?
This is what I'm talkin about—the attention to details and incredibly spacious interior with equally intriguing outside seating
