About Holy Crab

Holy Crab is a seafood restaurant jointly run by Chef Elton Seah and restaurateur Jamie Lim. Holy Crab originally started as a private home kitchen that operated from Chef Elton Seah’s home. The seafood restaurant is known for their innovative dishes, and fusion of local and Louisianan flavours. Their dishes offer bold, distinct flavours, forged by a fiery need for “WokHei” (breath of the wok). Holy Crab works with many different suppliers to bring fresh, antibiotic-free Sri Lankan crabs to Singapore. 

Menu Selection

Holy Crab offers a wide variety of Sri Lankan crabs doused in innovative sauces. Their dishes are also given innovative, quirky names that give Holy Crab their signature charm, such as Little Red Riding Hood — a dish of fried tofu cubes coated in sweet & spicy sauce, and Nemo in Hot Soup — a Kuhlbarra Giant Barramundi Belly cooked in Bristol Cream Sherry and spices.

Feast on a wide variety of seafood with Holy Crab’s Sri Lankan Crabs, Australian Lobsters, Boston Lobsters, Alaskan Crabs, and more. Not only does Holy Crab serve popular renditions of crab dishes such as chili crab and salted egg crab, they have special dishes such as Chef Elton’s signature dish — the Green Mumba, which features a Sri Lankan Crab cooked in savoury green chili sauce and kaffir lime leaves. Other honourable mentions include their Balsamic Crab and oOoOtak Crab. You’ll be spoilt for choice just from looking at their menu! Of course, a selection of non-crab/seafood dishes such as steak, chicken and greens are also available to add variety to the dining table. Another must-try on Holy Crab’s menu has to be their Hot Stone Pot dishes. 


Holy Crab boasts a variety of unique side dishes that are not commonly found in most seafood restaurants. Dishes such as Inception — shrimp-wrapped scotch eggs and Mini Squirters — fried baby dehydrated squids, caramelised in spicy fish sauce and curry leaves, and Crabtree and Evelyn — a stalk of torched broccoli planted in a plate of crab meat, garlic, chai poh and velvety sauce are just a few of Holy Crab’s crowd favourites!
