Tried google-ing a few recommended places for crabs where i can bring some of my international friends i met on exchange last year but came to Singapore earlier this year for their Summer Exchange. As its their last few days in Singapore and they told me they have yet to tried our famous chilli crab, so decided to bring them to Irvins located at Jalan Leban. When i first step in, i was kind of taken aback as it’s pretty empty, and i’m wondering, oh no, did the standard drop and so no one is around! Luckily when we tried the crabs, we are quite pleased with it! We ordered the following dishes for trying.

Pumpkin prawn: Pumpkin taste isnt too raw and sauce is a lil creamy. Even someone for me who doesn’t eat pumpkin find it good! Prawns used were big and fresh and deep fried to crispy!

Generally their crab prices are seasonal and vary accordingly to their sizes. But the ones at Irvins’ are quite reasonable. The big ones cause about probably around $50 odd, and sometimes they have promotional prices for crabs which can be as cheap as $18.

Salted Egg Crab: This is one of the promotional crab we ordered and chose to have it the salted egg style. Although, it’s small and i did not expect much from it, but to my surprise, it’s rather meaty! And the golden yellow sauce is amazing! When you think that dipping man tou into the usual chilli crab sauce is good, dipping it into this golden salted egg sauce is equally awesome! Definitely a good alternative for someone who prefer the non-spicy way. Their man tou is good too! Crispy on the outside, and soft in the inside!

Singapore Signature Chilli Crab: The meat of the Sri Lanka crab is fresh, meaty and jie shi. Definitely feeling shiok when eating it! The gravy is needless to say, a little spicy and well thicken with eggs.

Black Pepper Crab: The black pepper flavor may be a lil overwhelming and choking due to the nature of black pepper. So if you are not someone who enjoys taking spicy food, you may choose other alternatives. But other than being a lil overwhelm by the black pepper, it taste pretty good too!

Irvins’ prices are quite decent and food served are fresh. It’s quite spacious and air-conditioned. So beside it being a little ulu, i find it a good place for a family dinner!
