Food Delivery Review: 8 Crabs - Islandwide Crabs & Seafood Delivery

Chilli Crab, Extra Large, $88

This pregnancy, I am super deprived of food to satisfy my cravings because of Covid-19 and circuit breaker in Singapore! When the circuit breaker started, I was only 27 weeks pregnant, but the circuit breaker got extended and I am already in the 37th week of my pregnancy! I have been having many cravings, one of which is crabs! Just when I thought that I wouldn't be able to satisfy my craving for crabs, I came across 8 Crabs, which many of my friends on are sharing on their social media! It must be nice if they kept ordering it week after week right? 

So I plan the week ahead and preorder a great seafood feast for dinner! But then 2 days later, I had my gynae appointment and was told that I had to give birth earlier than I expected since I kept having painful contractions! So I quickly contacted 8 Crabs to try to shift my delivery to an earlier slot available. Thankful that it's super easy to contact 8 Crabs, they provide a link on their website for us to WhatsApp with our order number to make an enquiry! I am super duper grateful to 8 Crabs for accomodating me quickly and allowed me to enjoy the seafood feast! 👍 It was just in time, like hours right before I went to the hospital to deliver my baby! 😂

Why You Should Give 8 Crabs a Try:

  • 8 Crabs uses Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs 

    Crabs prefer to live alone and naturally travel about 500m every night. However, farmed crabs are breed 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. When stressed, crabs produce ammonia 😱.  Most restaurants purchase farmed crabs because they are cheaper. As a result, they use highly fragrant gravies to cover up the ammonia smell.

  • 8 Crabs is the only company in Singapore using grade AAA premium Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs

    This is graded by the most experienced crab graders in the trade. This means that their crabs are meatier, tastier, bigger, and less watery.

  • Freshest Wild Catch

    To ensure freshness, these crabs are caught, air-flown daily, prepared and delivered to you within 12 hours!

  • They have award-winning chefs to prepare and cook these fresh crabs daily to guarantee the best flavour and taste.

  • They have a one driver to an order policy across our 12 kitchens island-wide so that they are confident of upholding their promise of One Hour Crab Delivery.

Our Food Experience

I ordered the award-winning chilli crab in extra large size, premium salted egg prawn (deshelled) as well as butter battered calamari

The chilli crab comes with a generous serving of the chilli crab sauce, so we had a good time dipping sliced bread with it. The sauce is a little on the spicy side though, so this may not be suitable for children to eat. 

See how huge it is! It's a male crab though. :) 

Really huge pincher! 

The butter battered calamari is so fresh and tastes so good! Its salted butter flavoured with a hint of sweetness is so addictive! Once I chew on one, I cannot stop eating it! 😂

Butter Battered Calamari, Small, $14

I had high expectations for the salted egg prawns as anything salted egg is tasty! But was a little disappointed that despite the prawns being very fresh and big, the salted egg taste is a bit on the bland side. I do not see any red chilli and curry leaves in the dish too. Something seems to be missing from its taste. 

Premium Salted Egg Prawn(Deshelled), Small, $25
