    Ibrahim's Fatty CrabHalal a81b201f94b2180a29928950eefa06850871fc85c2ba8fcb39753bdbcdfb49cfCertified

    One of the few Halal Chinese seafood restaurants in town, Ibrahim's Fatty Crab truly is a place worth considering, especially for multiracial gatherings. Apart from their usual array of crabs, they do occasionally bring in monstrous being like the Alaskan King Crab. It's huge, it's sweet and it's absolutely delicious. Now, if budget is a problem, then perhaps the regular sized crabs might just be the one you seek. However, it's still fresh and cooked to perfection, so do not worry too much about it. If you need a partner to work along the crab, we recommend the freshly shucked oysters which is served beckoning on a bed of ice.

    Things to expect

    A casual place with outdoor seating as well.

    Mei Keng Fatt Seafood RestaurantNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Mei Keng Fatt excels in providing their customers with huge Australian crabs. The price may be a little higher than usual but it’s definitely worth the price. As usual, there are plenty of styles to choose from; sweet & sour, chilli, salted egg baked, salted baked, buttermilk and many more! And it’s pretty tough to pick a winner. In addition, their side dishes of lalas and fried rice accompany your crabs quite well. Overall, it will definitely be pricier than most seafood restaurant but quality is guaranteed, which matters the most. 

    Tips

    Opt for the Australian Crab.

    Things to expect

    Slow service but good food. Do not be fooled by the free wifi.

    Ishin Japanese DiningPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Tempura Moriawase is the signature tempura platter at Ishin Japanese Dining. Served thoughtfully with grated radish and lemon slice, the dish consists of lightly battered soft shell crab and aubergine tempura. The aubergine is coated with tempura and fried under high heat that leads to a crunchy outside but still with a soft inside. The contrasting texture is very pleasant to the tongue. The snow crab tempura is the star of the show as well as it should be. The shell of the crab is cracked beforehand leaving just the flesh; that are chewy with just a hint of the seafood sweetness.

    Tips

    The tempura on the soft shell crab may be a bit sharp so be careful not to hurt yourself.

    Things to expect

    The portion is only big enough to share in a small group of 2-3 people.

    Best with

    As a complemented side to the cold Sakura Soba.

    Tsubohachi Hokkaido IzakayaNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    The snow crab dishes served at Tsubohachi cover a wide spectrum of dishes. There’s the snow crab nabe that tops the bowl with snow crabs goodness together with a slew of vegetables. Every hot spoonful of this dish is bursting with fresh crab essence, and the mushrooms with the tofu provide much needed texture. Then there’s broiled snow crab that’s gleaming with freshness on the plate. The crab shells are broken down so well that it’s effortless to pull the meat off of it. The crab meat is incredibly succulent and flavourful, and the lemon helps to add a sour dimension to the dish.

    Tips

    Use the thin silver spoons dedicated for scooping crab meat from the shells.

    Things to expect

    The crabs are easier to break and eat than most other crabs.

    Best with

    Salad and chawanmushi are great additions to the crab feast.

    Restoran Hau Kee Seafood (口记海鲜楼)Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Despite being placed in a less celebrated location with a design that brings you back to the 90s, Restoran Hau Kee Seafood is surprisingly popular amongst the locals. Nevertheless, the restaurant is huge and is capable of fitting in more up to 200-300 pax, and even then you'll still be required to queue most of the time. So that’s another testament to consider. Having said that, with the quality of food such as the butter crab, white pepper crab or their signature recipe with red wolfberries and Chinese herbs, it's easy to see why they're so popular.

    Tips

    Reservations available.

    Things to expect

    A surprisingly huge place with rather bad service.

    Best with

    Chinese tea or beer.

    Hokkaido Seafood RestaurantPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Seafood doesn't get any better than this, as Hokkaido Seafood Restaurant is one of the leaders in this tightly-competed industry. They offer a fairly limited but stunning array of seafood such as crabs, lobsters, prawns, fish and many more. On top of that, guests will be able to choose their favourite style of cooking, depending on whether they like it wet and moist, dry and hard or simply spicy and tangy. There is nothing pretentious about the presentation but you sure hear your stomach growl multiplying with no mercy. In short, it's a really good place to be if you're in the mood for seafood.

    Tips

    Reservations recommended.

    Things to expect

    Outdoor seatings.

    Restoran Long Grilled FishNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Located in the not-so-friendly-neighbourhood of Jinjang, Restoran Long Grilled Fish Seafood still has quite an outstanding amount of customers. Either they are not afraid of the common gangsterism issue, or it has subsided over the years. Let’s put that issue aside, Restoran Long Grilled Fish Seafood is actually really popular for their ikan bakar as well as the signature baked crab. By doing so, the natural flavours of the crab is retained, while being kept juicy and moist. Large dollops of butter add a creamy dimension to the dish. All in all, it’s quite addictive. 

    Tips

    Come early if you wish not to queue.

    Things to expect

    A huge crowd and rather horrible service, but good food.

    Best with

    Beer or Chinese tea.
