I love eating crabs. No, make that – I love, love, LOVE eating crabs! If you want to make me happy in an instant, serve me a crab dish.
The regular steamed crab dish is my all time favorite. I also like roasted garlic crab, beer-steamed crab (yup, you read that right!), Sprite-steamed crab (again, you read that right!), ginger and scallion steamed crab, pepper crab and of course, the chilli crab (preferably cooked the Singaporean way!). So, yes, as you can see, I love crabs! (Do you as well?)
So I’m pretty excited to know that here in Mindanao, a large city is set to celebrate its first ever crab festival! Presenting the Cotabato Crab Festival 2011!
The 2011 Cotabato City Crab Festival, a component event of the upcoming Shariff Kabunsuan Festival, will take place from December 15 to 19, 2011. The event will hold the theme “Sustaining Quality and Productivity to Improve Gains.”
On December 15, 2011, there will be a “Crab Forum” while a Crab Exhibit will be held at the South Seas Mall from December 15 – 19, 2011. There will also be a crab culinary arts competition (somebody please invite me to be a taste judge! LOL) and a crab race.
Looks like the first ever Cotabato City Crab Festival is going to be fun!
