Crab-crunching at The Crab House

g-b-009With fresh crab and lobster as the highlight of its menu, it’s no wonder that tourists and locals from across the island are flocking the only true crab restaurant in Phuket, The Crab House, neatly located on Phangmeung Road in the bustling entertainment center, Patong.

But it’s not just the crab, lobster, oh and shrimp, that draws the customers to The Crab House, it’s in fact the whole dining experience, which is close to mind-blowing.

You make your choice of dish, and then YOU get to choose the exact crab, lobster or shrimps that you want prepared. And not only is it the shellfish that’s fresh, you can rest assured that all ingredients used in your chosen dish have been bought that very same morning.

High quality chefs prepare your food behind a glass screen, which still allows you to watch them in action, but is a lot quieter ambiance than that you find with an open kitchen, perfect!

Two of the best sellers from the choice of shellfish, and which we confirm are a very good choice, are the Blue Swimmer Crab (Portunus pelagicus) and Black Crab (Scylla serrata).

But when it comes to dishes, one of our personal favorites, and one we would highly recommend, is the Fried Black Crab with XO Sauce. The sweetness of the crab is highlighted perfectly with the combination of the smooth spiciness and fine sweetness of the XO sauce.
It’s a very well thought-out dish, and each time it’s made to perfection.

g-b-020As we mentioned before, the whole dining experience is somewhat part of what draws customers to The Crab House, and there’s not too many places that offer such a crab-crunching experience as theirs.

You get to enjoy a sensational meal, but you also get to enjoy a full-on experience involving protective bibs, crab crushers, pliers and special implements for extracting super juicy remnants of crabmeat from the dark recesses of shell, carapace and claw.

If you’re like us, true crab lovers, then you’ll throw yourselves into this ritual of eating and getting to all the tasty morsels with great enthusiasm.
g-b-012Don’t worry if this world of crab-crunching is a whole new experience for you and you’re not quite sure if you’re ready for it yet, simply make your choice the extremely flavoursome Crab and Sweetcorn Soup, or Soft-shelled Crabs which are just as delicious as the finicky mud crabs, but much easier to devour! Oh, and maybe we should also mention that at The Crab House you’ll get to devour some of the biggest crabs you will find on this island.

Even if you don’t fancy shellfish, the menu also offers a great selection of tasty Thai dishes served with your choice of rice or noodles.

The Crab House also serves a full range of beverages at very reasonable prices to really enhance the whole crab-crunchingexperience.
Extra impressive 5% discount when you make your reservation via Facebook or by phone and mention to The Guide Phuket magazine.

The Crab House is open daily from 12.00pm until midnight.
