Hey I love a celeb owned restaurant as much as the next fella. And Diddy’s place (Justin’s) is no exception to that rule. 

It’s being billed as the hot spot for upscale Soul Food cuisine. And (based on the rave reviews) Diddy is delivering the goods. That being said, my only issue with the menu has to do with one of the appetizers. Now I get he runs a posh place. So I figured the prices wouldn't be cheap. I just was a bit surprised when I discovered that the P. Diddy Shrimp goes for 12 bucks!!!!! Excuse me, the P. Diddy Jumbo Fried Shrimp is 12 bucks.

And all you get are 4 shrimps, some coleslaw, and Diddy's signature tartar sauce. 

I believe Red Lobster gives you 6 shrimps for 10 bucks. Again, I'm sure the food is delish, just a smidge disappointed…Diddy.

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. I would be more interested in the them onion rings anyhow :) I wonder if there are more than four???

  2. They charge what the market will bear...If people stop ordering the overpriced shrimp, they may get the message. Besides the price, all that batter and deep fried oiliness isn't my thing either.

  3. haha p. diddy when will you learn

  4. There doesn't seem anything exceptional about those shrimp. And his "signature tartar sauce" looks suspiciously like ketchup & mustard. Nice.

  5. isn't "upscale Soul Food" an oxymoron?

    and Diddy just a plain old moron?


  6. Haha, I think it's more their name being sold than the food.

  7. hmm. interesting.. honestly I would expect that from Diddy..

    He has kinda milked his success from the early years of his career.. He has really done Anything worth talking about lately

  8. Sounds like Diddy thinks his shrimp is rather precious. How long is his Jumbo shrimp, anyway? (I can't tell from the photo.)
    ..Someone had to make some sexual innuendos here, and you knew you could count on me for that. Right?

  9. What's up with that Diddy? Bring the shrimp on man. Don't hold out on the people.

  10. That's a lot of $$$ for deep-fried, breaded shrimp. Now, if it came with a side of pepto, I might consider it . . . =D

    You have a fun blog. Glad I found you.

  11. P. Diddy's Jumbo Shrimp...wow what a creative name. Haha I think the shrimp portion is $5 but you have to pay the extra $7 for Combs' royalties.

  12. Maybe those shrimp look like his you know what, so he's placed a monetary value on them to match what he....never mind.

  13. did somebody already say "oxymoron?"
    aas in jumbo shrimp?
    the man is a money making machine, but what a douche he is...
