So, I dated my bimbo girlfriend to go Daiso shopping at Kallang Wave tonight and when we were done… we were wandering around wondering what to eat for dinner and we chanced upon the Crab in da Bag signage.  Irene says she hasn’t tried it before so I was happy to oblige since I love seafood.

In case you haven’t heard, just days ago, the Crab in da Bag Sports Hub branch recently got into FB saga over a 2-star review. I have my reservations about the review because I normally would ask how big or how heavy the crab/prawns when I order seafood in any restaurant. These stuff are usually priced seasonally right? Then again, it might be just me and my weird buying practice. Tell me if you do ask or just buy it blindly?

Anyway, since we were there.. we decided to be funny and do a survey. We ordered mussels, clams, a Sri Lanka Crab and some prawns. When we were looking through the menu, the staff kindly explain to my noobie friend on how to order, what is not available and also mentioned that the Sri Lanka Crab is slightly smaller so it will be priced at $45 instead of the usual $55. We were also informed of the weight, but I can’t recall what it is anymore. Pardon my brain.

The food looks pretty decent. Having dined in Cajun Crabs, Dancing Crabs, The Boiler, I think the portions are pretty similar. Wearing our aprons and all ready to tuck in!

We wanted to see if the mussels has no meat claim is true, so we set aside a #NoMeat corner and a #GotMeat corner on the table, and faithfully put each clam shell in the respective corner after we ate. For each standalone clam/mussel meal that came without the shell, we also shifted a shell from the #NoMeat section to the #GotMeat section. So… at the end of our clams and mussels bags, here’s the verdict!

Only one lone clam shell that came without the meat. Not that much of a variance, and Irene and I decided that it is well within our threshold! You can decide if this is within the threshold of tolerance. Everyone has different threshold so I am not about to impose mine on you.

We were also given a bit of spiced rice to try with our Caboodle Mix sauce that our Sri Lanka crab came in.. Here’s Irene taking a whiff of the spiced rice.

I have to say this is pretty interesting and has a really refreshing taste. I kinda enjoyed it so if you are ordering the Caboodle mix sauce, so order some spiced rice, and ask for some lemon to try this!

Ended the meal with a dessert on the house, honeydew slices with jelly. So full we barely can walk. *burps*

It was really just a pure coincidence that we decided to choose to dine there, and my dear friend just challenged me to blog because my blog is so dead and it needs some new life in the year 2016 and we really do think it’s quite funny not to share. Don’t think too much and make your own judgement call!
