We’ve been avid fans of Seafood in a Bucket since they opened their first branch in Al Attar Centre, Karama. Whenever we come and visit, we always find a long queue of hungry kabayans waiting to be seated in their bustling graffiti-filled restaurant. Their unique concept and low priced quality food proved to be a huge success so they opened a new branch in Ansar Gallery, Karama.
Say hello to a more spacious Seafood in a Bucket restaurant!
We arrived at 6 pm and I was surprised to see the restaurant half-full already. To think that this branch is not as accessible as the one in Al Attar Centre!
This Seafood in a Bucket branch is spacious, well-lit and has a more sophisticated style. It doesn’t look too crowded as well. They also incorporated a pastry shop called The Bread Work’z which I think is a newly introduced business.
While waiting for our orders, I observed the staff and was amazed on how much their service has improved. It’s really good specially for an F&B business to have more manpower so customer needs are well taken cared of. Also, I’m happy to see Kuya (one of the pioneer servers), who I think is now a supervisor 🙂
By the way, they will be opening another branch in Deira this September. Seafood in a Bucket will be more accessible!
Oh, and they now serve breakfast from 8-11 am daily. Hmm.. I want to try that Crispy Native Anchovies dish.
Our Apple-cucumber cooler came in a huge mason jar. Take note that all their refreshing coolers are bottomless! I doubt if you will ask for more after finishing one. hehe
They give free crackers so customers have something to munch on while waiting for their orders. One small suggestion though, I think the amount they give should depend on the number of people on a table. Ian and I didn’t even finish half of these crackers. What a waste diba?
Same as our previous visits, Ian ordered calamari in garlic-butter sauce while mine was tilapia in black-pepper sauce. Personally, I prefer Asiento’s calamari because theirs taste more like the ones we have in the Philippines. But their tilapia is a different story 🙂 I love how the black pepper sauce gives a kick to the otherwise simple dish. And FYI, the servings are enough for more than 1 person. Perfect for sharing!
I told you servings were huge so we had some left-overs to take home. hehe
Our total bill was only AED 38. Yes, believe it or not, you can have scrumptious seafood without hurting your wallets. 🙂
We will surely try these dazzling cakes and pastries on our next Seafood in a Bucket visit 🙂
