    Located right smack in the middle of a lake, the breezy environment and elegant setting sure sets the mood for a memorable dining experience, especially in the presence of the restaurant's famed crab dish. Patrons may opt for either mud crabs or soft-shell crabs when it boils down to preference but rest assured, both crab variants are nothing short of being exquisitely decadent when it comes to flavour. Fresh as can be, the crabs can be eaten without the company of any sauces but even so, the presence of sauces -such as chilli and salted egg types; can be justified because they help elevate the overall taste and texture of the crustacean. Either way, the restaurant is more than willing to accommodate to your whims and wants when it comes to serving crabs -or any other seafood for that matter. 

    Tips

    Reservations must be made 24 hours ahead.

    Things to expect

    Pleasant ambience overlooking the lake.

    Best with

    Braised shark's fin soup.

    Price

    The fact that they incorporated their signature seafood into their establishment's namesake is a testament of how confident the management is of their crab dish. And boy, Crabhouse Seafood Restaurant surely knows how to pack a wallop with their crab dish. Using primarily the river variant of the crustacean, the mud crabs are cooked to perfection, regardless whether if they are merely salted or lathered with copious amount of spicy chilli sauce. While the process of getting to the flesh surely invokes a challenge of it own, the satisfaction derived from the results is unparalleled. Sweet, sweet success will come in the form of fleshy, briny crab meat where patrons will indubitably catch on to the freshness of the dish. Be warned though, for the spiciness is not for the weakhearted.

    Windmill’s Signature Soft Shell Crab came buried in ample amount of egg floss, so much so that you can barely see the crabs at first sight. As you dig through the egg floss, you will see that the crabs come in a generous portion. They are fresh, with a taste that will remind patrons of the ocean. The shell is crispy but soft at the same time and the meat is sweet and soft. The egg floss carries a strong, tantalizing butter scent and is garnished with curry leaves and chili. Combined with the crab, it will definitely lead to an explosion of flavour on your tongue. An array of vegetables including lettuce, shredded carrots and shredded radish are served at the sight to cool you down and give you your dose of fibre.

    Tips

    Fairly spicy.

    Things to expect

    Flavourful and delicious soft shell crab with egg floss.
