Singapore – $70 Pokémon Jumbo Crab

Posted by

I met a girl in Singapore who is originally from Hong Kong and she highly recommended trying Jumbo Crab so I searched it online and the place was awarded by Trip Advisor. So I met up with a friend of a friend named Parijat and Tim was with us too and we three decided to try out the restaurant.

The restaurant displayed the huge massive jumbo crabs in a tank; I really think the crabs do look like Pokémon. It’s enormous. Anyway so we ordered 2 crabs to share and 3 ice teas with out meal and yup!! the bill came up to $300. WHATT???? I KNOW!!!

Highlight of that meal which Tim keeps reminding me off, is when I was trying to eat the crab with chopsticks. OK!! I have a reason behind it. So I’m the only girl on the table and hanging out with 2 male acquaintances who I just met so I didn’t want to look like a messy  eater so I decided to pick up the chopsticks and eat in the most “sophisticated way”. Honestly, I looked dumb and couldn’t eat properly. After lots of laughter, Tim said ‘just use your hands’. But NOOOOOOO ME??? USE HANDS IN FRONT OF TIM (because I had a crush on him) . So I asked for gloves which made it even more awkward because for some reason the crab meat kept slipping from my hand.

Anyway we did enjoy our  $70 Jumbo Crab Pokémon. Would I eat it again? YES!!!! But probably somewhere affordable but the restaurant is apparently #1 in Singapore.

That night Parijat had to get back home early so we said our goodbyes then Tim and I spent the night in Marina Bay before he travelled to the Philippines.
