About Happy Crab

Happy Crab is a hole in the wall seafood restaurant located along Pahang Street in the Kampong Glam district, operating only at night. Specialising in serving large, delicious and succulent Barbecued Deep Sea Sand Crabs, which are rich in yellow roe. Their recipe is inspired by original Teochew crab recipes, which have been improved on over many years of experience since their inception in 2004. Want an alternative to your usual feast of crabs doused in heavy sauces? Happy Crab is your best bet!

Menu Selection

Unlike most crab restaurants, Happy Crab avoids the use of heavy sauces such as Chili Crab gravy or Black Pepper gravy in their recipes as they believe that doing so would mask the flavor of the actual crab. Instead, their signature Barbecued Deep Sea Sand Crabs are simply seasoned with sea salt, crushed black pepper, and their special light unagi sauce. Happy Crab’s special cooking technique ensures that the natural flavour of the crab itself is delivered fresh on your plate. 

To ensure maximum freshness and quality of their crabs, Happy Crab serves only a limited quantity of crabs per day. It is advisable to make a reservation early or make a call to the restaurant to enquire about the availability of crabs before coming down in order to avoid disappointment.

Signature Dishes:

Apart from their signature Barbecued Deep Sea Sand Crabs, Happy Crab also has several other signature dishes such as their Barbecued Squid, Seafood Hor Fun, Sambal Fried Rice, Bee Hoon, Steamed Salmon Head, Pase Pase, and White Wine Lala (clams) that will definitely have you coming back for more.
