Look at that craaaab. 😍 I’ve always hated eating crabs as I find it more tedious than enjoyable, not until I’ve tried chili crab (first time was still in KL). Holy Crab’s ($9+/100g) is no different as they cook it very well. We chose level 2 of heat, and it’s just the right amount of spice you would want if you’re chili-averse like me lol. We paired it with their mantou ($4+ for 5) which could be improved as it’s a bit oily. Enjoyed every bit of this 1.3kg crab. Probably one of the mid-range crab places I’ve tried that totally didn’t disappoint!


Good laaard, this dish is one reason why holycrab is on the #burpplesghot100.

Anything with that much lard is bound to be good. Loads of fresh ingredients, with a strong wok hei that adds a ton of flavor. This is really the bomb diggity. It's slightly wetter than most, but the trade off is worth it.


😷 Aside from durians, I’ve been thinking back on this green chilli crab that I ate at HolyCrab some months ago. Yup you read that right, GREEN chilli! I usually avoid eating it because I dislike the sharp sourness - I make an exception for jalapeño, don’t ask me why.
The green chilli sauce here, however, had none of that unpleasant acid, and plenty of yummy from the aromatic spice blend or rempah, scallions, candlenut, lemongrass and two types of green chilli. Kinda like chilli crab dressed in a kebaya. Wipe up the unique sauce with the mantous - here, they fry the kong ba bao buns so you get more surface area 🤤
This was from a hosted tasting thanks to @burpple and @holycrab.sg.


Pink peppercorns were meant to taste sweeter than the usual black ones - didn’t seem any different, but crab was sufficiently good. Preferred the butter-sauced version.
