Last year, Skai aka c(hubby) and I were invited to a Somersby event at Crab in da Bag at Big Splash. It was our first time trying out such Cajun styled seafood and we had really enjoyed ourselves.
Thus when Food News and Crab in da Bag invited both #nadskai and #leonfidel for a tasting at Crab in da Bag at their newest outlet Singapore Sports Hub, we were extremely excited! Needless to say, we said yes 🙂
The new venue at Singapore Sports Hub boasts a scenic waterfront view of the skyline of Tanjong Rhu.
And as per the usual look and feel of the Crab in da Bag outlets, the restaurant retained it’s nautical blue and white decor and uniform.
Needless to say, the four of us had a bit of fun with the bibs and food before tucking in.
Some of the dishes we sampled were the:
Some vegetable sticks to start with.
We first started with lemonade (which definitely gave a kick with it’s sourness) and soon swopped to our favourite Somersby Apple Cider.
Although I’m usually not a fan of squids, I really enjoyed the Crispy Chewy Baby Squids ($12++).
The Crisp Crinkled Cauliflower ($8++) which was deep-fried and sprinkled with salt and spices and served with a zesty Tahini sauce was really delicious too. I hope to be able to replicate the recipe in future! Seems like a healthier snack than chips!
We were also introduced to the newest offering: the scrumptious Mum’s Pasta in da Bag! ($16++), where linguine is sautéed in a thick, rich sweet and sour sauce (a family secret recipe, i hear!) and served with Venus clams and Bratwurst sausages.
This beauty is the Titanic Pot ($299++) which serves 4 pax. In the pot, we have an assortment of seafood. To be exact 1 Boston Lobster, 2 Sri Lankan Crabs, Alaskan King Crab Legs, Yabbies, Tiger Prawns, Boston Bay Mussels, Venus Clams, Bratwurst Sausages, Corn on the Cob, Potatoes, Onions & Lemons boiled in a secret blend of Louisiana herbs & spices.
Accompanied with three different types of sauces: the Louisiana Garlic Butter Dip, Malaysian Sambal Dip, Thai Green Bird Dip. My personal favourite was the garlic butter dip! Damn sinful but it really hit the spot!
We also tried the Tiger Prawns with Salty Splash – $26++ which was an East meets West concoction of prawns with yummy salted egg and Louisiana’s herbs and spices. A must order!
Honestly, at this point, I was ready to surrender. However the boys still went on strong. They tackled the Live Yabbies with Caboodle Mix -$29++ which was a secret combination of local and Louisiana herbs & spices, cooked with garlic & unsalted butter.
The guys also polished the LIVE Venus Clams with Ultimate Curry – $21++, a Northern Malaysian Curry with Crab in da Bag’s signature curry mix, stir-fried with aromatic curry leaves and Chilli Padis. This one might not be suitable for those who can’t take any spice!
Overall, did we enjoy ourselves? Definitely! Crab in da Bag is one of our favourite seafood places and they never disappointed us.
We ended the sumptuous meal with some desserts.
Thanks Food News and Crab in da Bag at Singapore Sports Hub for the invite once again!
