Going crazy with crabs - and prawns too - at CRAZY CRAB!
The restaurant was not roomy and not well-lighted, but it was already peopled when we entered- mostly Koreans. With that observation, it meant that the eating place was worth a try.
The live crabs that were place inside a small aquarium near the entrance of the restaurant.
The foods that we ordered as captured below:
CRAB AND CORN SOUP
BAKED BUTTERED GARLIC PRAWN
HOT AND SPICY CRAB
I am basically allergic to foods rich in histamines and the number 1 food to avoid is crab.
Though I have eaten crabs before, which always gives me itch (even with small bites, and when I risked more, rashes, stomach pains and difficulty in breathing were experienced);
I always allow myself to take risks some times. And that day when we entered Crazy Crab restaurant was one of those challenging days I had to face.
As foodie warriors, we need eating utensils to feed the hungry stomach. These were the eating "props" that were served to successfully eat the crab.
I was honestly quite dismayed with the taste. Maybe because my expectation was high. The taste of the CRAB AND CORN soup was nothing really memorable. My rating is 6 of 10.
The unexpectedly yummy shrimps at different mouthwatering angles. I highly recommend this BAKED BUTTERED GARLIC PRAWN dish.
If I can rate this dish beyond ten (my rating =10 of 10), I will give it a 100 score.
The HOT AND SPICY CRAB at different angles.
I am not a lover of crab but I am giving a generous rating for this dish = 8 of 10. The sauce was delish and the spiciness was very close to perfection.
Obviously, the mode of payment is CASH only.
My overall rating:
Food + Ambiance + Services + Price = 8.5 of 10
- mainly because of the foods, again, especially the prawns!
