Who’s ready to hear about a restaurant in Singapore that sells Sea to Table Sri Lankan Crabs? We’re all eating a lot at home these days and sometimes I just feel like a treat, especially when I had a couple of close friends coming over to catch up the other day. For that, I ordered a sea to table crab feast from 8Crabs!
I haven’t heard of 8Crabs until they contacted me to ask if I’d like to try out their grade AAA premium Sri Lankan wild crabs. This is graded by the most experienced crab graders in the trade. Their crabs are meatier, tastier, bigger and less watery.
To ensure maximum freshness, these crabs are caught, flown, prepared and delivered to us within 12 hours. How’s that for a sea to table experience?

My XL Crabs
I loved the crabs! The crabs were big, meaty and had a sweet crab flavour to it. The cooking was done well. Black pepper and salted egg are strong flavours but it didn’t overshadow the sweet taste of crab that everybody loves.
Look at how big the claws were!
The crabs were served with a generous amount of gravy that was perfect with the fried man tous. When you order Salted Egg or Chilli Crab, make sure to order with the perfectly fried man tous.
I was also craving for some carbs and the fried rice really hit the spot. :) Our bellies were happy that night! :D
Delivery came on time, food was packed nicely and the whole ordering process was fuss-free. Plus, there’s free delivery for orders above $120!
Definitely ordering from them again when the craving for crabs comes knocking again!
FYI, you can also order raw Sri Lankan crabs from them too and have it delivered to your choice of location within an hour. Live Crab delivery in Singapore here.
