Did someone say CRAB?? Yes!! Recently, we have been craving for chili crabs! No need to head out at all! You can simply order your chili crab delivery and other zi char dishes from 8 Crabs during this circuit breaker period!
Here’s what we have ordered:
- Award winning Chili Crab 辣椒螃蟹 (1 piece of Large sized crab approximately 700-800grams) *MUST ORDER*
- Fish maw soup with crab meat 蟹肉鱼鳔汤 (Super love this too!)
- Premium Pork Ribs King 排骨王
- Claypot Beancurd 砂锅豆腐
Did you know that Crabs naturally travel about 500m every night and prefer to live alone? However, crab farmers breed many crabs in a confined space in order to be profitable. This causes the crabs to get stressed very
easily in captivity as many farms cannot replicate their natural habitat.
How do you know if the crab is fresh?
When stressed, crabs produce ammonia, which is a sign of decomposition of seafood. Most restaurants purchase farmed crabs because they are cheaper. As a result, they use highly fragrant gravies to cover up the ammonia smell.
To me, fresh crab meat is not mushy at all, doesn’t have the ammonia smell and should not stick to the shell too much! 😀
What’s the difference for wild crabs?
Currently, 8 Crabs is the only company in Singapore using grade AAA premium Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs graded according to experienced crab graders in the trade. This means that their crabs are meatier, tastier, bigger, and less watery!
We have tried and tasted! Indeed, there’s a lot of crab meat from the Chili crab which we have ordered! And it’s not watery at all! THUMBS UP!
Why order from 8 Crabs?
To ensure freshness, these crabs from 8 Crabs are caught, flown, prepared and delivered to you within 12 hours.
They also have a one driver to an order policy across their 12 kitchens island-wide so that they can uphold their promise of One Hour Crab Delivery.
We have tried and tested, placed our order at 3pm for 5-6pm delivery slot and our dinner arrived promptly at 5.30pm just in time for dinner! 😀
Taste wise: I love that the food were delivered piping hot! And they provide various chili sauces, vinegar for our soup etc. Best part of all, there’s more than enough chili crab gravy to go around woohoo!!
To the most important part, we love the taste of the food! The chili crab sauce was spicy and tangy! YUMS! We also loved the fish maw soup with crab meat! It came with alot of ingredients and each mouthful was just filled with lots of fresh crab meat and fish maw!
Ease of ordering: I really like how we can easily order the food items online directly from their website! No need to order via a delivery platform and worry if there’s any drivers who will pick up your order.
Price wise: To be honest, the crabs sold here are not the most affordable ones available, but for the quality of the crabs, i think it’s pretty worth it! We really enjoyed our chili crab & zi char selections! If you are craving for chili crabs too, give them a try! 😀
Hope that you will find our food recommendation useful! Let us know if you have tried it too! XOXO
