Where to Get Crabs Below $50 in Singapore

Chilli crab, apart from being known as lip-smackingly delicious, also has a rep for its price. This prized crustacean would typically set you back at least $70-$80 on average at any given restaurant — and we know how hard it is to just stop at one. Don’t fight your temptations any longer; here are five restaurants in Singapore that sell crabs below $50. 

1. Crab at Bay

Don’t just get one crab, but two for $38! Crab at Bay has likely one of the most competitive prices around. Two crabs for $38 means one will cost just about $19 — super worth it, especially if you’re sharing with a friend. What’s more, it’s Sri Lankan crabs weighing at 500 grams each that they offer. This tze char restaurant in Macpherson is also apparently celebrity and food blogger-approved and highly raved about according to their reviews on Facebook. Choose from 10 different cooking styles and flavours, including salted egg yolk, black pepper and fried crab bee hoon, which appears to be their signature.

2. Wok Master

Another restaurant that leaves us no choice but to indulge in more crabs — get two crabs for $48 and three for $65. While Wok Master serves Indonesian mudcrabs instead of Sri Lankan crabs, it’s still pretty worth it nonetheless as one crab is about 500g. Choose to have your crab cooked in sauces like chilli, black pepper, as well as a newly introduced curry flavour. If you’re in the mood to order more, the restaurant also has other affordable seafood dishes such as Lobster Broth with Crispy Rice ($38) and a generous Seafood Platter ($68).

For an affordable tze char feast with your friends, check out Sinaran Seafood and Catering at Teck Whye. A must-order is of course the Chilli Crab (from $40)  that comes with thick and spicy chilli sauce that goes even better with fried mantou. Other regular dishes on the menu range around $5-$10. This place is also halal; good to go with your Muslim buddies.

4. Hua Yu Wee

At Hua Yu Wee, crabs go at a mere $7.28/100G. We’re not sure how heavy the crabs there weigh on average, but the total price should add up to be pretty affordable since this old-school restaurant is known for their pocket-friendly prices and 1970s vibe. Choose to have your crab steamed à la Teochew style, baked with salt and pepper, or deep fried with butter. Sounds oh-so-sinful and delicious already.

5. Yaowarat Seafood

Crab with a touch of Thai flavours? Anytime. Yaowarat Seafood, named after the Chinatown of Bangkok, specialises in Thai Chinese cuisine at affordable prices. A Crab Vermicelli dish here starts from $35. Choose to have it cooked in the classic creamy crab bee hoon broth, or with Thai tom yum soup. Either way sounds yummy, but we’d go for the tom yum since you hardly find that anywhere here.
