We provide our specialty, the rare Ultra Fresh ‘AAA Grade’ Wild Caught Sri Lankan Mud Crabs. However, if you wish for something more economical, we do have the restaurant grade Sri Lankan Species crab from South East Asia, a.k.a. SEA (Indonesia/Malaysia/Philippines/Vietnam) that you can select too.

So you may be asking, what’s the difference? It’s real simple!

Sri Lankan Mud Crabs: Mighty big caws, more Meat, extremely tender and flavourful. Rare in Singapore, Most premium restaurants usually serve via advanced arrangements.

S.E.A Mud Crabs: The same species originating in other parts of South East Asia is also tasty and tender, but firmer than the actual Sri Lankan variant. Most premium restaurants in Singapore use Mud Crabs from Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Philippines.

While we ensure that only healthy, happy, and meaty live crabs get cooked, customers may time to time feel disappointed upon putting their crab delivery on the weighing scale – only to find out that their crabs weigh less than expected. It is common for crabs’ weight to be reduced by 25 to 35% during the preparation and cooking process. We have prepared a guide to explain why crabs weigh lesser after cooking.
