Sze Char Delivery - Yay or Nay?

Trying out the premium set meal that 8crabs have put together, featuring their highly raved Award-Winning Chilli Crabs.

8 Crabs Seafood Restaurant

Hearsay 8 Crabs offer Crab and Seafood Delivery and are the only company in Singapore using grade AAA premium Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs. To ensure freshness, these crabs are caught, flown, prepared and delivered to you within 12 hours.

This means that their crabs are meatier, tastier, bigger, and less watery which makes it so tempting to give it a try!



Their website is very user friendly and I like how they provide a on-demand 1-hour delivery upon ordering. But I'm a big forgetful so I choose to order 1-day before. During check out I get to select my delivery timing and the delivery man came on time for the slot I've selected hence, didn't wait for too long to have dinner. Oh ya, I'm also a sucker for anything that provides free delivery LOL it's like one selling point that will make me say "take my money".

This is what I've chosen for a 4-pax dinner:

You can opt for this meal if you feel that what I've ordered is too much:

They have a variety of set meal on their website and I noticed they are updated from time to time.


So far their sze char dishes are so-so only. After all the highlights is still the crab, so let's talk about the crab!

Quality are assured! Crab were fresh and meaty, that explain the photo below. I can pull the meat out even on the smallest area! If only... there's more chilli crab sauce for us to indulge.

However, if you are a gong lover then I would suggest you to prepare a crab mallet to crack open the crab claw because they only help to make a hole and the shell is very hard making it difficult to open.

Not forgetting the bun, it's something Singaporean mustn't miss when we are having chilli crab! It's quite sad to receive the bun being soggy due to the delivery, perhaps a better packaging could be used...

Anyway, the cai po beancurd sauce also goes well with the bun. It's a unique combination that some will enjoy I would say.


I really love their crab and how I can get to enjoy every bit of the meat without wastage of food.
Great for a scrumptious crab feast at home I could say. If there's a chance to order again I would get a variety of crab flavours to try out, because the quality and price point is so worth it.

Plus there's free delivery for orders above $120 so what's more I could ask for? I also like how their price are transparent and goes by weight/size.

Their signature are: Chilli Crabs, Black Pepper Crabs, and Salted Egg Crabs.
