If you are craving for crabs or seafood, check out some of these restaurants over the past few months. This article was supposed to be for dine-in until the recent heightened alert pausing dining-out until 13 June 2021. So we had to tweak this piece a little so that you can still order these to dine at home. Have them all to yourself or share them with loved ones. Anything to stay happy and safe in these anxious times.
Skip the queues and enjoy a seafood and crab feast in the comfort of home. 8 Crabs prides itself as the only crab delivery service that uses grade AAA premium Sri Lankan species wild caught crabs. It started out as a premium seafood importer specializing in wild catch crabs, sea cucumber, prawns, grouper and tilapia from Sri Lanka.
This zi char offers meal bundles from S$48. Just like many other good zi char stores, 8 Crabs offers a variety of preparation methods for its crabs including the Chilli, Black Pepper, Salted Egg, Steamed or Mala.
Their crabs are categorized by weight.
|Medium Sized||350 g|
|Extra Large||900 g to 1 kg|
|Double Extra Large||1.4kg|
You got to check out their value set meals which are quite value-for-money. Pick from sets for 2 to 3 people up to 4 to 10 people. Or pick ala carte seafood, meat & poultry and others. We were sent the popular NDP Chilli Crab Feast for 4 to 5 people priced at S$129. The bundle came with a large Chilli Crab with nine fried mantou , and small portions of Prawn Paste Chicken, Signature Prawn Roll, Hot Plate Tofu, Sambal Kang Kong, Pork Ribs King (Pai Gu Wang) and a medium Yang Zhou Fried Rice. I like it that you have the flexibility to choose from a menu of options for each category for this set. It was quite a feast and my family of five with not very big appetites couldn’t finish everything in one sitting. The crab was extremely fresh and tender.
And if you are throwing a gathering soon, the Signature All Day Value Feast starts from S$149 for 4 to 5 people up to S$349 for the Extra Large Set Meal that feeds 8 to 10 people.

HolyCrab! What used to be Charlem Thai at Capitol Piazza is now this new tenant. HolyCrab was formerly at Tan Quee Lan Street since 2017. But earlier this year, it moulted from its former shell and found a new home at the Arcade @ The Capitol Kempinski. Chef Owner Elton Seah and partner Joy have brightened up the two-level outlet with brightly coloured staff uniforms, bright orange accents and cheery wall papers.
Savour the Thai Curry inspired oOoOtak Crab (S$90/kg) that is made with kaffir lime leaves, homemade sambal, coconut milk and eggs. My favourite dishes are those with the homemade tamarind green chilli sauce. The Green Assam Fish (S$88) and Green Mumba crab (S$90/kg). The Green Mumba crab is HolyCrab’s answer to the Singapore Red Chilli Crab. 12 different types of ingredients such as green chilli padi as well as green chilli, coriander and mint leaves are added to give this dish a herbaceous fragrance.
And if you are craving a carb-loaded seafood dish, the Signature HolyCrab Fried Rice (S$16) is perfect.
