Upholding its reputation as one of the best Louisiana restaurants in Singapore, one can expect only the best of Louisianan seafood to be served on their dining tables at Dancing Crab by TungLok Group. Those who have been to the restaurant would know that a meal there is life changing and the dining experience redefines perspectives of how seafood should be enjoyed.
Dancing Crab has done away with the usual tableware so that diners are able to enjoy their food freely using bare hands. That’s right, the casual restaurant is like a home away from home but much better with scrumptious country-style Cajun seafood, a boisterous atmosphere and creative alcoholic beverages.
We are very excited to share that Dancing Crab has unveiled an updated menu featuring new dishes that come with prices that won’t shock you. Needless to say, signature dishes such as their Dancing Crab Combo Bags are here to stay as well.
Are you ready to find out what Dancing Crab has to offer? You’d be sorry if you do not read on.
DANCING CRAB SIGNATURE SEAFOOD COMBO BAGS
Those who have been to the restaurant would know that the best memories at Dancing Crab are forged when groups share the Signature Combo Bags. There is no need to be shy when you are indulging in the seafood boils.
Go ahead and reach out for that juicy crab pincer, slurp some mussels or whatever you fancy that day. Don’t be afraid to get messy because that is the idea actually; it is all part of the fun!
Dancing Crab Chili Crab Served With Country Bread (S$80++) is a crowd-pleaser and it is not hard to see why. Served fashionably in a handcrafted bread bowl, this dish is more than just a visual feast for your eyes. We recommend dipping the tender crab meat into the thick and savoury chili crab sauce.
You can never go wrong with Dancing Crab Black Pepper Crab as well. This is a perennial Chinese favourite and we love the robust peppery spice that enhances the freshness of the seafood.
Creamy Pepper is a flavour that is exclusive to Dancing Crab @ VivoCity, so make sure you go for this flavour when you order your combo bags at VivoCity’s outlet. In comparison with the rest, this light and creamy sauce will strike a good balance on your palate after the usual heavy sauces.
Other combos that will delight all shellfish affectionados are Crawfish Combo (S$75++) and Dungeness Crab Combo (seasonal price) With Miso Butter. Do note that the Miso Butter sauce is exclusive to Dancing Crab @ Orchard Central.
The Crawfish Combo features 600g of crawfish, 350g of prawns, clams, corn and sausages; while Dungeness Crab Combo is filled with 1 large Dungeness Crab, 350g of prawns, clams, corn and sausages.
Dancing Crab may be known for their signature combo selections but you should never skip the appetisers on the menu.
For salads, we loved the Crab and Shrimp Ceviche Salad (lunch – S$12++, dinner – S$15++) and Cajun Sweet Potato Salad (lunch – S$12++. dinner – S$15++). The former is a delightful plate of leafy greens with fresh shrimps and tender crab meat while the latter boasts crispy deep-fried sweet potatoes lying atop crunchy green vegetables.
If you are looking for something comforting, Crabby Corn Chowder (lunch – S$8++, dinner – S$10++) is what you have to order.
DANCING CRAB CLASSICS
You probably wouldn’t think of anything non-seafood when at Dancing Crab, but we are telling you the Chicken and Waffles (S$15++) is the bomb. The deep-fried chicken is ever insanely addictive—crispy golden brown chicken skin that crumbles when you bite into it, unveiling tender white chicken meat beneath. On top of that, you also get warm waffles that go really well with sweet honey and cream.
Nothing screams party food like Crab Nachos (S$12++). The portion of nachos is generous, making it great for sharing and is best paired with cold booze. Other Dancing Crab Classics to look out for include Popcorn Shrimp Po’ Boy (S$15++) and Lobster Roll (S$29.90++).
Thinking of dropping by for a quick meal during lunch? Dancing Crab has got that covered with their rice and pasta dishes which come in a wide array of flavours.
Pasta “Goreng” (lunch – S$12++, dinner – S$15++) is a mee goreng inspired dish. The fried noodles are replaced with traditional spaghetti and we applaud the chef’s creativity in infusing local spices together with the pasta and seafood ingredients.
Fans of Aglio Olio should not skip Dancing Crab’s Seafood Aglio Olio (lunch – S$12, dinner S$15++)—what you get is a plate of warm, buttery pasta with fresh seafood such as prawn, clams, mussels and calamari.
Originating from coastal South Carolina and Georgia, Shrimp and Grits (lunch – S$15++, dinner – S$17++) is an iconic Southern dish. While it looks like a simple recipe, the rich and creamy grit received many praises from all of us at the table.
FROZEN BEER IN SEVEN FLAVOURS
Nothing goes better with seafood than a mug of ice-cold beer. But why stop at one when you can have seven different flavours?!
Options include French Vanilla, Mango, Lychee, Watermelon, Wild-berry, Bubblegum for the adventurous and Plain for those who simply prefer the classic taste of beer. Mix and match any four flavours for S$32++.
MASSIVE ICE CREAM SUNDAE TO END YOUR MEAL WITH A BANG
The kid in us was screaming in delight when we saw this massive ice cream sundae which can easily feed more than 5 people!
Layers upon layers of ice cream, marshmallow and strawberries are piled on top of each other to build this outrageous ice cream sundae. That is not all—it is then topped off with more ice cream cones, waffles, creamy whipped cream and strawberries.
