Award Winning Crabs from 8 Crabs Seafood Kitchen!

The thing about good seafood is the freshness and preparation to best bring out the flavour of the dish. And our home delivered meal with 8 Crabs did not disappoint!

Having won several awards and features on The Straits Times, Zaobao, Eatbook and The Vulcan Post, their best-selling crab dishes are a must-try and you can expect big and meaty Sri-Lankan crabs with no hollow shells or crumbly meat. I actually ordered for the home delivery via their website here .

So what’s so special about the crabs from 8 Crabs?

The crabs prepared by 8 Crabs are Sri Lankan sourced wild catch crabs, which is why:

  • they are Bigger, Meatier and Tastier.
  • there is no ammonia smell or taste
  • cooked from Live Crabs only, dead crabs are strictly discarded
  • Free from harmful substances

In fact, consuming crabs that smell like ammonia can be harmful to the human body and shouldn’t be be consumed. Crabs actually get stressed very easily and ammonia is the byproduct of seafood going bad. When the crabs get stressed, they produce a lot of it and the smell is strongest before it is cooked. Therefore most restaurants use recipes such as chilli crabs that are rich in smell and flavour that can mask the smell of ammonia.

Sri Lankan Wild Catch Crabs are better than the commercially farmed ones that produce ammonia as a result of stress in captivity. In fact, this overcrowding can mean diseases are spread easily and substances are added into their waters to counter that. The overcrowding in the farms also cause more distress to the crabs, thus increasing the amount ammonia in them.

What’s so great about the Sri Lankan crabs that are air-flown in by 8 Crabs is how it actually takes just less than 12 hours for the crab from being wild caught in Sri Lanka to arrive in your home! I’m impressed 8 Crabs!

Our first order from 8 Crabs

Of course I couldn’t resist ordering the Chilli Crab dish since its one of the best selling dishes. And it definitely did not disappoint! The crab wasn’t just massive in size….. the flavour was just huge and the meat was so juicy too. For someone who hates getting hollow shells or shrunken meat beneath the shells in the crabs that I order, I was very happy with this dish indeed. And so was the family!

They also have other mouth watering dishes which we ordered including the Premium Pork Ribs King, Yam Ring and Premium Salted Egg Prawn. So Yummy!!

Check out the size of this thing! That’s my hand by the way, not the kids’.

Even my littlest 4 years old Miss Kiki enjoyed dipping the fried mantous into the gravy to savour the flavour of the gravy!

Thank you 8 Crabs for such a scrumptious and mouth watering meal right in the comfort of our own home!!

Making it work across distance and time barriers

Let’s face it, long distance relationships are tough to maintain especially when the time difference makes it hard to connect on phone calls and video calls at convenient timings for both parties. And in our case with both of us working as well as our four little ones who go to school and come home at various timings, you can imagine how challenging it can be to get everyone together at the same time to video chat.

Nevertheless we’ve made it work over the years whenever the daddyman or I have to travel overseas for work for weeks, months and in our current situation…. years. 
And none of this would have been possible without the help and support from our loved ones especially my mum and dad ❤️. Thank you grandma and grandpa! 
They say it takes a village to raise a child and I wouldn’t contest that, but with four kids to raise I am nothing short of grateful for the unconditional love and support from our loved ones who have played such an important role in being such great influencers and caregivers to our brood.
As I pen my thoughts at this point while flying from Boise to Los Angeles alone, my heart is filled with so much love and gratitude. Spending the past week alone with my husband visiting theme parks, taking thrill rides, going shopping and just appreciating one another was just what we needed. And even though we’ve been married for 16 years and together for 22 years, it shouldn’t get boring. 
 This past week, he took me from theme park to theme park riding roller coasters knowing how much I enjoy the thrill rides. I felt like a little girl again when he made sure that I didn’t collapse from heat exhaustion under the 43 degrees Celsius heat. And i was moved when he drove for hours to make sure I got to eat some good xialongbaos and visit the beach in California. 

 Thank you baby for making sure that we got to spend time together even though the kids and I were here with you just two months ago. Thank you for the thoughtful gestures along the way. And thank you for the careful planning to make this happen.
