8 Crabs - Food Review

It's lots of cooking and food takeaways during this circuit breaker. How are meals settled in your home? Though we do lots of home cooking, we take occasional kitchen breaks with food deliveries too. Mums need their well deserved break.

Just this week, we had a hearty feast with 8 crabs during one of my lazy to cook days. 8 crabs' fast and convenient delivery is certainly an option to curb crab craving without having to leave home. It promises to deliver within an hour.

Not happy with bro snitching a bun

Too much food!

Here's what you need to know about crabs:
Crabs naturally travel about 500m every night and prefer to live alone. However, crab farmers breed many crabs 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, which is a sign of decomposition of seafood.

Here's what you need to know about crabs from 8 Crabs: 
1. 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
2. This means that their crabs are meatier, tastier, bigger and less watery.
3. To ensure freshness, these crabs are caught, flown, prepared and delivered to us within 12 hours.
4. Their award-winning chefs prepare and cook these fresh crabs daily to guarantee the best flavour and taste.
5. They also have a one driver to an order policy across their 12 kitchens island-wide so that they may uphold the promise of one hour crab delivery.

Not a crab eater? There are other dish choices if there are non-crab eaters among the family. Here's what we ordered for our meal:

Black pepper crab - Large ($68)
Chilli crab - Large ($68)
Prawn paste chicken - Large ($22)
Gravy Hor Fun - Large ($18)
Mee Goreng -Large ($18)
Fried Man Tou - 5 pcs ($6)


Their 'L' sized crab weighs about 750g while alive, and about 500g after cleaning, gutting and cooking. 'XXL' crab weighs about 1.2kg, and 800g after cleaning, gutting and cooking. I'm sure there's bigger satisfaction in larger crabs, but we happily settled with crabs 'L.' 

There are 3 cooking styles for their crabs - Black pepper, chilli and the non-spicy, salted egg crab. It's wonderful that there's a non-spicy option for the spice adverse taste buds. Though I think more cooking variations would be perfect. The crabs were fresh with meaty and firm flesh. Well cooked and coated in tasty sauce and gravy too. Truly Singapore's black pepper and chilli crab taste.

Remember to get man tou to go with the generous amount of chilli gravy!

The large dish portion feeds 6 to 8 people fairly well. It was definitely more than enough for us. Hor fun was good too, but definitely needs more gravy for takeaway. The man likes chilli Mee Goreng, which I ordered specaially for him. He enjoyed it! 

And so did we, with the rest of the dishes. Burp...

Here are their delivery charges:
Express one hour delivery: $ 18.00
Same or next day delivery: $ 8.00
FREE DELIVERY if you spend $120 and above.

Mother's day is only a day away. 8 crabs is definitely one feast option for consideration.
