Chilli Crab Recipe Filipino Style. A seafood bestseller! #sogood #seafoodsaturday

One of my favorite things to do on weekends is to go to a Seafood Paluto Market. Whenever I meet with friends, it’s no surprise that we will be meeting at either Seaside Macapagal or at Ortigas.

At the Sis Restaurant, which is our designated restaurant, I usually have to order this yummy Spicy Crab. I can spend hours and hours talking and just eating the crabs. :P

Here is a deconstruction.
