Leecher with his parents outside the restaurant, which was hard to miss judging by the huge signage that can be seen across the car park.
Crews dressed in sailor uniforms greeted me at the door step, how cute! The whole restaurant was decorated in nautical theme and I absolutely adore the decorations at the bar counter! Maybe this will be the next theme of our house if we ever get to change to a new place.
The essential tools for a meal!
At Crab in da Bag, be prepared to keep your phones and devices in your bag as your hands won't be clean enough to touch them! In order to document this entry, I had to eat with one hand while keeping my other hand clean to capture the pictures. Leecher, on the other hand was kept busy for he now had 2 mouths to feed.
Before we kicked start the meal, we ordered Somersby Apple cider for the ladies ($9) while the guys headed for beer ($9). They do serve wine, bubblies and spirits. I was tempted to try the sparking moscato mini ($17/200ml) but felt that it was way too early to start drinking. So I settled for apple cider instead.
When truffle fries is missing from the menu, the next best alternative would be sweet potato fries ($7). I tend to convince myself that this is a healthy snack given that it's made from sweet potato, just like how some of the guys drink coke light/zero and thought that they are consuming less sugar.
Crinkled cauliflower ($8) - I ordered this for parents in laws and they found it tasty! Mummy-in-law replicated this recipe during one of our weekly dinners after the meal and it tasted yummy!
Nothing fantastic about CiDB wings ($10), just regular chicken wings.
The highlight of the meal finally arrived at the table. Served in plastic bundles, they arrived one by one of the table.
The hearty spread :)

Since this was our first visit to the restaurant, we ordered a variety of their seafood to try. First up, we had tiger prawns ($25) tossed in Louisiana Garlic Butter.
Glad that parents-in-laws enjoyed this different dining experience.
King Crab Legs ($38) seasoned with their signature Caboodle mix, which was a secret combination of local and Louisiana spices, cooked with garlic and unsalted butter.
They ran out of cray fish, so I had to replace my order to Loligo Squids ($18) tossed in Mum's special, which was a home-made recipe of sauteed onion rings and garlic, in a savoury sweet and sour brown sauce.
Lastly, we had Sri Lankan Crabs ($50) seasoned with their best selling Ultimate Curry - signature curry mix, stir-fried with aromatic curry leaves and chilli padi.
Grandpa's bread ($1.50) for dipping into the various seasonings. Besides bread, you can also order spiced rice (new item on the menu!) and 3Cs (includes carrot, celery and cucumber sticks with home-made tangy mayo dip) as side dishes.
As this was our virgin visit, the crew member taught us the proper way of eating rice @ Crab in da Bag. First, scope some rice on the table and pour a spoonful of your desired seasoning over it. For this demo, I paired rice with ultimate curry.Next, squeeze some lemon over it to enhance the taste.
Lastly, mix well with your fingers and popped it inside your mouth.
Wow, rice never tasted so good! Looked like I'll have to start accumulating more lemons in my fridge next time, heh. Overall, it was an interesting experience and I can't wait to try Cajun Kings next :)
