The Ultimate Guide to the Best Crabs in Singapore You Won’t Mind Dirtying Your Hands For

Feeling crabby? Here’s a great solution for you Singaporeans: the hunt for the best crab in Singapore! Who doesn’t salivate at the thought of succulent pieces of crab swimming in a tangy, slightly spicy special sauce? And of course, who can forget its match made in heaven – a steaming plate of  crispy, melt-in-the-mouth man tous (steamed buns)?? What the crab!

Incidentally, I love eating crabs and have made it my own personal mission to scour our island to find the best crab dishes. I’ve collated a list of the most outstanding crab eateries for easy reference (you can thank me later) – some of these places listed I’ve visited myself, while others were discovered through word of mouth. Regardless, I hope to visit all these places, and if you’re a staunch crab-lover like I am, you’d want to do so too.

Let’s get started, shall we?

The Best Chilli Crab

6. Roland Restaurant

Roland Restaurant’s origins date back to the 1950’s, when its founder, Mdm Cher sold her signature chilli crab dish on a pushcart along East Coast Road. I think that’s why people love Roland’s chilli crab so much – it is the authentic chilli crab.

A few years ago, some crab restaurants found that there were no need for platters, and started serving them in bags instead. Lining the tables with plastic table tops, these restaurants force customers to eat with their hands and off the tables! Eating without  plates and cutlery is certainly a novelty, and I wouldn’t mind getting all down and dirty for crabs as succulent as the ones here:

The New Ubin Seafood Restaurant’s salt-baked crab is one that you should definitely try as it is unlike the many other crab dishes that can find in Singapore. This salt-baked crab is one that is more dry as compared to the rest as it does not have any sauce to go with it.

This Crab on Toast dish ($19) is topped with humita (a corn sauce), pickled turnips and freshly chopped coriander. What’s great about this dish is how the spice and herbs perfectly balance out the sweet humita sauce; and that despite having soaked up the flavours of the sauce and crab, the toast remains crunchy and crumbly. The bottom line? Definitely worth a try.
