Shrimp Is The Fruit Of The Sea

So said one Benjamin Buford Blue.
Who?
Bubba!
And to whom?
Forrest Gump of course!
You can barbecue it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There are shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan-fried, deep-fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp & potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. 

Imagine if we decide to make it a point to try them all out for Bubba? Hahaha... exploding tummy!
Ready to order!
Raimie was quite amused with the two signs so Daddy and Mommy regaled to him about Forrest Gump the movie. For the record, Mommy watched the movie (this was before Mommy started seeing Daddy) 7 times, ALONE!
Drink up! Raimie had a speckled lemonade with blueberries, Daddy had Mango Sparkler and Mommy had a smoothie with her favourite energy food - bananas, aptly named Run Forrest Run! Yummy!
Raimie cleaning off a big bowl of chowder. He's a growing boy, after all. ^^
Can't eat or try out all the shrimps they have to offer, so this would do just fine for us. Shrimper's Heaven with breaded coconut shrimps, tempura shrimps, chilli shrimps and fried shrimps. I forgot that with all the running I'm doing now, I can't stomach much fried food so Zaini helped finished off most of the shrimps while I attacked the chilli shrimps.
Shrimpin' Dippin' broth with jasmine rice and french bread for dipping. I like this, A LOT!
The boy's free meal - more shrimps! And they're fried! Because it's a kiddie meal, it came with two little bowls of Jell-O.

Anyway, we went out on Saturday with the intention of buying a bookshelf for Raimie at Ikea and have lunch there. It's been ages since we last enjoyed a meal at Ikea's cafeteria but it was so packed! @.@

Four hours later, we head home with no purchase made. Ahahah... No choice but to make another visit in the future. But maybe during a weekday instead of the weekend.

  2. looks good huh.. although I am not a fans of shrimps but I do like fresh ones.. especially the most basic boiled shrimps with no additional seasoning.. that's the best to eat with just soy sauce!! simplest at its best!!

      I'm glad Auntie Rurousha likes Raimie's grin. That grin always made Raimie's Mommy happy too. :)

  6. I don't enjoy eating at Bubba's cos I can't eat shrimp. My favourite place is Italiannies :D The wife and me both love the food there. Besides, it's a good place for pre-race carbo-loading. Notice how everything we do has some significance to running ... hahaha!

    I've never been to bubba sadly ...
