Mardi Gras at New Orleans and Clawdaddy in Boni High Street

Mention Mardi Gras to me and my mind will be filled with thoughts of a big parade with people wearing colorful costumes dancing in the streets. This celebration, also known as Carnaval, is mostly known to be held in Brazil and which attracts tourists from all over the world.

It was a pleasant surprise to be invited to a version of Mardi Gras in the Philippines. My friends and I joined the festive atmosphere at Bonifacio High Street the other night and had a nice time listening to and watching performers entertain guests and passersby alike.

The festivities were fittingly held in front of the New Orleans Restaurant. Beside it is Clawdaddy where we ate dinner. 

Here are some of the delicious dishes that we got to enjoy that night:

Tasty BBQ Baby Back Ribs (Half P398.00, Full P698.00) 
that came with French fries and sweet corn

Crunchy BBQ Nachos with flavorful dressing (P265.00)

I loooove the Shrimp Popcorn (P299.00)! 
It is crunchy when you bite on each piece but the shrimp inside is succulent! 
I like eating it even without the dip :)

We were also served small pieces of bread with various toppings ...
Clawdaddy's Bread Basket (P145.00)

Garlic and Cheese Oysters! (P295.00) 

And here's one of my favorite foods that's also available in Claw Daddy's 
sister establishment Crustasia -- the Typhoon Crab that's called 
Butter and Ginger Crab in Clawdaddy (P105.00-135.00/100grams) Super yum!

Having that nice dinner with friends (we forgot to take a group photo, darn!) along with all the fun and laughter did make for a perfect way to celebrate a happy event such as Mardi Gras. Cheers! :)
