The staff are dancing happily as you enjoy your crab 🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀
✔️Chilli Crab (112++): 2 fresh Sri Lankan crabs on the bread bowl and ooh, the sweet chilli sauce is nice!
✔️Beer battered mushroom* (8++): super crispy and juicy. Yes this is the one dish I really like.
✔️Corn bread (6++) for 6 pcs and Beignets (3++) for 3 pcs: the latter is like donuts

Overall: ♥️♥️♥️♥️

Worth every moolah😉

First time trying lobster rolls and this was awesome! The brioche was buttery as it should be, and the lobsters were as fresh as can be, a true testament to the sea. It was quite light on the tummy so maybe you might want to order twice 😏. Comes with fries (you can add a dollar to upgrade it to truffle fries). It was quite expensive ($36) but worth the price as the quality of the dish was impeccable. Squeeze the lemon to add a touch of acidity.

Ordered the beignet, which is basically a rectangular shaped buttery donut and their fried calamari. Beignet is served hot and best eaten that way, it's excellent (3 for $3)! The fried calamari ($9.90) was awesome (batter not too thick and oily, squid fresh and springy).

Overall a 5/5 experience and would come again. Also worth noting that the staff were polite and service was prompt.

Delicious seafood with nice friendly service. Love the freshness of everything, nothing to complain about, been here multiple times and each time I have a good experience. Just be prepared to eat with your hands and get messy!

It’s a mess yes, but isn’t that how eating seafood should be? Had a pretty good time licking all the juice off my hands 👍🏼

If you are looking for an unconventional take of our iconic national dish, look no further than this Chili Crab Bread Bowl at Dancing Crab! The 2 live crabs at approximately 700g each, are nicely dissected to be encased within the bread bowl, and can be shared nicely among 4 people (you get 1 pincer each!) if you are ordering some sides or other smaller combos to go along.

No doubt you don’t get the pillowy man tous to dip in, but the crispy yet fluffy bread bowl make equally good dipping buddy. And even if the dish looks innovative, the sauce still retains the characteristic of the Singapore chili crab sauce; tangy, spicy (thanks to the chili padi used!), herbaceous from the lemongrass and ginger. What’s different are the pomelo chunks, that enhanced the refreshing taste amidst the heavy flavours in that bowl. Such citrusy with those from oranges are truly welcomed!

Might seem a little pricey, but fresh firm crab meat is definitely worth the wow especially when shared. At least we were rather impressed with a different type of chili crab.
