Neighbours to Joo Bar along Tan Quee Lan Street, Holy Crab is the collaboration between private chef Elton Seah and the owner of Joo Bar. The space is small and portions are big, so make reservations in advance and come in a big group. The menu is kept to the bare minimum — one appetiser, three carbs, and shines the spotlight on what Chef Elton does best — gravy-ladened crabs. There are two types of crabs to choose from. Large groups (three or more) should consider sharing the Sri Lankan crabs, while duos may want to opt for the smaller Vietnam crabs. All crabs are brought in daily, charged based on weight ($8 per 100g) and you're allowed to split one large crab to be cooked with two different sauces at no extra charge. Of the six sauces including the signature chilli crab, go for the comforting 'succumb', which features crabs braised in a incredibly flavourful broth, fried with eggs, chives and topped on a bed of vermicelli — no need for an extra order of carbs! Share the Fried Baby Squid ($14) while waiting on your crabs.
Avg Price: $40 per person
