Holy Crab is best known for their finger-licking good crabs, but do you know about their equally delicious mains? Holy Crab’s Weekday 3-Course Lunch Special offers a main, drink and dessert at ONLY $19.90++!
Space and Ambience
Located in Arcade @ Capitol, Holy Crab is impossible to miss with its enormous crab leg installation similar to the large crab signages along the streets of Osaka!
Holy Crab’s interior is fun and colourful, while its exterior is lined with beautiful flowers and bathed in natural lighting.
The scorched vermicelli or Chao Tar Bee Hoon (ala carte: $16/$30) is a wok hey heaven. The bee hoon is crispy and fragrant, although it’s a bit dry. Beneath it lies generous amounts of egg, pork belly, prawn and sotong (squid).
Hooked on Mee (Hokkien Mee) (ala carte: $16/$30)
The Hokkien Mee is the wet type, yet the sauce is packed with flavour. The thick noodles have a strong wok hey taste. You can find generous servings of pork belly and pork lard in each bite. The charred lime is perfect for squeezing on top of the noodles to make for a wholesome dish.
The coconut (add $3) is refreshing, and the coconut flesh is sweet. I think it’s worth the extra $3 to enjoy in this blazing hot weather.
The lime juice ($4) also a refreshing choice that cuts away the oiliness of the mains.
The Yellow Submarine (Tau Suan with crispy youtiao) ($8) is quite bland. The consistency is more watery than the tau suan sold in Chinese dessert shops. The only saving grace is its crispy youtiao. However, I would recommend ordering other desserts instead.
Overall, I give Holy Crab’s Weekday 3-Course set lunch the following rating:
Space & Ambience: 4/5
