Bib on time at Crab in Da Bag!
A similar concept to The Boiling Crab in the United States, Crab in Da Bag is a Southern Louisiana and Asian influenced seafood restaurant specializing in seafood dishes tossed in homemade sauces and served casual-style in plastic bundles. Yabbies in Mum’s Special prepared with sautéed onion rings and garlic in a savoury, sweet and sour brown sauce ($28++), Squid in Ultimate Curry ($18++), Prawns in Caboodle Mix made with a combination of local and Cajun spices, garlic and butter ($25++), old school Fruity Boat a.k.a. honeydew with lychee jelly ($5++) and Bananamisu ($5++); we had all those and more! The convivial atmosphere and eating off the table (use your hands and get messy!) experience scored many brownie points!
I deem these fried addictive bites a must try! We couldn’t stop nibbling on them while waiting for the “real” food to arrive. Plus, they go really well with the Somersby Apple Cider beer ($9.50++ for 330ml)!
sweet potato fries ($6++), crinkled cauliflower ($8++)
The house signature is a massive pot (they call it the titanic pot) full of all things good and every type of crustacean delights you could possibly want! My favourite was the sweet and juicy king crab legs, and of course lobster FTW!
The Caboodle Boil ($299++ per pot, good for 4-5 pax)
1 boston lobster, 2 sri lankan crabs, 400g king crab legs, 400g yabbies or 750g squid, 500g tiger prawns, sausages, corn, potatoes accompanied by malaysian sambal dip, thai green dip and louisiana garlic butter dip
Thank you, Amanda, for inviting and cracking those hard shells for us!
