Bubba Gump

A kick-off from the movie "Forrest Gump" - this is how Forrest and Bubba would build their restaurant: fun, relaxed, and with room for the whole family to enjoy fresh high quality shrimp, fish, ribs, and yummy desserts!

Already one of the 20 stores worldwide, the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Restaurant and Market in Greenbelt 3, Makati is the perfect venue for adult and kids parties too.

The movie Forrest Gump offered sound bites from the slightly dim but good-hearted main character such as, “Mama always said dying was a part of life” and “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”

The movie not only gave actor Tom Hanks his second straight Oscar as Best Actor and the distinction of following Spencer Tracy’s footsteps for the honor—it also gave birth to Bubba Gump Restaurant and Market in San Francisco in 1999.

The name Bubba Gump was derived from the shrimp company formed by Forrest after his Vietnam buddy died in combat. Forrest had made a promise to Bubba that they would go shrimping together. Forrest and Lt. Dan, another Vietnam veteran, embarked on a shrimping journey and in true Gump fashion, ended up millionaires.

The restaurant’s personality is “simple,” said Edward Co, vice president for business development, Shrimpworks Co. Inc., which owns and operates Bubba Gump in the Philippines.
“The restaurant’s personality is just like Forrest Gump’s. Thus, we serve food made from the freshest ingredients and each dish is served in the best way possible,” said Edward.

Edward and siblings Kevin, Melody and Carol run Shrimpworks. Although it is the family’s first time in the restaurant business, the brothers trained for more than two months in Bubba Gump outlets in San Francisco and Maui in order to get the feel of running a food franchise.

Because Forrest is from Alabama, Bubba Gump served Southern food with Cajun influences, including fish, chicken, steak and ribs, aside from the ubiquitous shrimp. Just like Forrest, the cuisine is unpretentious and refreshing at a time when fusion can confuse you with its strange combinations and even stranger tastes.
The restaurant’s bestsellers include Shrimper’s Net Trash (delicious fresh shrimp steamed in beer and served with vegetables); Bubba’s After the Storm “Bucket of Boat Trash” (tender shrimp, slipper lobster and flaky white fish cooked Baja style and served with coleslaw and fries) and Dixie-style Baby Back Ribs.
Edward said the restaurant, which is located at the second floor of Greenbelt 3, Makati City, consumes 1 ton of shrimp every month.

For first-timers, the Run Across America Sampler is the best introduction to Bubba Gump’s cuisine. It includes Bubba’s Far Out Dip and Chips, Chilly Shrimp, Ping Pong Chicken and Mama Blue’s Fried Shrimp. The dip, which one can order separately, is a delicious combination of fresh spinach, roasted red pepper, artichokes and Monterey Jack cheese.

Another must-try is Grandma’s Firepot Fish, which is succulent Cajun Mahi Mahi with Grandma’s Firepot Sauce and juicy shrimp over white rice and served with pineapple-mango salsa.
The local franchisee has been allowed to develop and offer its own dishes, including Aloha Seafood Broth and the best-selling Stop Curry Stop, which is shrimp served in a creamy coconut sauce with special spices and vegetables.

For Mother’s Day, Bubba Gump will give groups with moms in tow a free Mud Pie (delicious layers of chocolate and vanilla ice cream with bits of Snickers chocolate bar) for every single receipt purchase of P2,750.
All these delicious food is served in surroundings that will definitely remind you of the movie. On display are the beige suit that Forrest wore, his Nike shoes, Jenny’s wedding gown and even some toys. There are pictures and memorabilia all over for that truly homey feel.

Kevin Co, Shrimpworks vice president for operations, said the restaurant, which seats 300 people, is designed to accommodate large families.

“We are lucky in that since the restaurant opened four years ago, our average customer occupancy is 70 percent,”
