Cover Feature: Craving For Crustaceans – The Holy Crab (The Foodie Magazine, May 2014)

While still considered as a relatively new player, The Holy Crab has quickly risen to prominence with its fancy crab selection, the Louisiana-style hot sauce and the traditional way of having it all!

Located conveniently at Jalan Gunawarman, The Holy Crab conjures up a comfortable atmosphere that intertwines the traditional fisherman’s wharf feel complemented with a ship’s bell and dominated by wooden décor, and during dining hours, it becomes very lively with the scene of customers enjoying their loot and hard core blues tunes playing.

Their crab selection is to die for. The Holy Crab provides an assortment of local blue crab, mud crab and prawns, plus their one and only premium Dungeness Crab, flown directly from Washington State. Weighing between 1 to 1.5 kgs per crab, they are exquisitely sweet and combine well with the Cajun sauce that is made up of cayenne pepper, bell peppers, lemon, and garlic.

Additionally, we enjoyed so much the accompaniment of the fulfilling yet juicy flesh of Alaskan King Crab alongside sweet corn and fantastic local prawns. The whole idea of getting your hands dirty is reinforced by the crab boil-style, no plates or utensils way eating, wherein the food is served directly onto the paper lined table.
