Happy Crab 蟹开心 – Geylang, Singapore


This place came highly recommended by a Singaporean friend base in Shenzhen also and I told myself I need to visit this place when I was back the last round. Happy Crab, as the name suggests, sells crabs and only crabs. Their crabs are specially ordered and all comes with thick, milky and sweet roe inside as you crack open (see pic below). However, they are just a stall within a coffee shop, hence you can also order from the tse char stall which apparently has damn awesome wings and sambal kang kong!

Crab stall... Notice it's that simple and they don't display the crabs cos of freshness issue.  See how many people order takeaways!

Sample crab's flesh is a little too watery. Not suitable for BBQ and have feedbacked to the owner to stick to his usual crabs.
