    Oh MR Crabs..............

    I am coming to eat you up.................................

    Its another Gathering of the GAGA GIRLs..... and this time we've decided to visit Mr Crabs from Spongbob and friends......

    The place was pretty out of the way, far from everywhere, situated in a funny set up of 3 coffee shops within 2 blocks of flats. However, the crowd was AMAZING... I've really never seen such a HUGE crowd in a Tiny coffeeshop... and the noise... Cracking of the crab shells, squirting of the crab juice, slurping the soup, licking the pot clean.... tells you everything you need to know about HOW GOOD THE CRABS REALLY ARE.......

    My favourite is but of course the Mr Crabs...... The crab beehoon was very tasty. Its not the ajinamoto tasty kind but of the rich stock tasty taste.... Beehoon was soft n QQ and the crab was so MEATY.... I can sink my whole 2 front teeth i got last christmas into the fleshy meat..... Can you imagine that.... so juicy, soft and yummy. The soup was creamy and emits a sweet crab roe taste.

    Thats not the best yet.. THE BUTTER CRABS was just like the ones i had in KL..... So CREAMY, So fleshy, So Delectable. *SLURP* Huge chunky crabs and creamy sauce.. can you imagine that.... HARD RIGHT.... But it sure is a POTENT COMBINATION.... It tasted so nice I almost wanted to lick up the plate... Order nice mini deep fried buns to pick up the sauce if you want to avoid spooning down the sauce. You simply cannot resist that.....

    We had also the seafood tofu, It was soft and crispy on the outside. Very appetizing and kids surely loves it. It has got bits of everything in the tofu and very SHIOK if you eat it while its still Piping Hot.... The paper chicken was ok... Veg was ok.....

    So if you are a crab lover... you must come and try this place out.. Can you imagine, I am still salivating? I must relocate to Ang Mo Kio.......

    Don't EVER TRY IT..... If you are not planning to get HOOKED.........

    I gotta eat here at least once ever fortnight or once a week if i can.. I will go with my boyfriend and both of us will order a crab claypot beehoon with another serving of extra soup...

    The soup is very good with a rich and sweet buttery taste and at the same time u can taste the sweetness of the crab roe and flesh in the soup as well.. I wonder how they do it...

    I usually go on weekdays around 9pm and there will be no queue but u can definitely call them to reserve a table.. The staffs are pretty helpful as they will let u know when the crabs are not exactly fantastic that day...

    Went to this place with polarbear and a couple of other colleagues. And like what he had mentioned, the food there is really quite tasty and the queue was really long.

    I can still remember seeing the queue form up as early as 6pm and even when we had left around 8plus, the queue was still as long as it had started. So you can really imagine the business there is extremely good.

    And I liked the Crab Bee Hoon more. Cos' the creamy crab seems to be slightly overcooked and some of the meat was stuck on the shell, thus making it a bit harder to eat. In addition, the shells of the crab were not really "broken" and no crab pincers (nt sure if that's what they term), were given to us to help us break the shells. So in the end, we had to use our teeth to crack open the shells.

    As for the Thai chicken and sambal kangkong (which Polarbear did not get to taste, haha!!), the former was really good, with equal sweetness and sourness while the latter was really spicy. For those who can't bear hot stuff, do be warned that the chilli is really powerful.

    Overall, I would say that the food was good, but without a booking be prepared to wait for a long time. Therefore, my advice is : Always make your booking beforehand. Do not attempt to try your luck. You wil be disappointed.

      I don't think they allow advance booking. The queue at their TPY branch is shorter
