Crab In Da Bag: Lip Smacking Asian Style Seafood Boil
Just within a short span of 2 years, Crab in da Bag has become one of Singapore’s popular boiled seafood eatery! Birthed from the concept of Louisiana seafood boil, seafood are served with 5 choices of home-made lip smacking Asian flavored sauces. Things will only get messy (or a lot messier) here, which depicts the true meaning of finger licking good![adToAppearHere]
Crab in da Bag is the first in Singapore to serve ‘Caboodle Boil’; a Louisiana Seafood Boil Specialty boiled in a massive pot, drained and served directly onto your table top! That’s right, no cutlery nor crockery, just bare hands.
I came here with a couple of my #TeamKPT mates as a farewell dinner for KY, Singapore’s finest Shot Put thrower.
Browsing through the menu, we decided to order from the Ala carte and skip the Caboodle Boil as we could select our choice of seafood instead. We had 4 x Sri Lankan Crabs ($55, 650-750g), 1 x Tiger Prawns ($26) and 1 x Boston Bay Mussels ($24). Click here for the menu.
Next up, choice of sauces! Tossed our crabs in Ultimate Curry and Mum’s Special, Prawns with Salty Splash and Mussels with Caboodle Mix. Which was my favourite? ALL OF THEM, I kid you not! However, if I really (x 10) have to make up my mind, I vote goes to Mum’s Special.
To start of proper, we ordered Sweet Potato Fries ($7), Mum’s Chic Wings ($15) and Pita Bread to go with the sauces later.
The moment we all had been waiting for. My advise is to snap your pictures, do your quality checks before letting the good times roll!
My gosh, I am salivating while doing up this post!
In comparison to The Cajun Kings, Crab in da Bag has won my heart. This meal had turned my world around (180 degrees), however, it turned back to reality when the bill came (another 180 degrees)! Our bill was $360!
There you have it, Crab in da Bag! The sauces were truly amazing and one of its kind! Kudos to the creator!
