We dare you to try and find a seafood restaurant in Singapore, heck, any kind of restaurant with a name that’s more fun than Crab in Da Bag. Since its inception in 2013, Crab in Da Bag – this branch being fittingly-located inside Kallang’s Water Sports Centre – serves exactly what you’d expect: seafood smothered in homemade, lip-smacking sauces in little plastic bags, because eating with your hands is so sexy. This is food that finds the perfect and unusual balance between Louisi-American and Singaporean cooking, and it’s damn good. As we say, head to Kallang and Stadium Walk for a piece of the fun – you’re going to love Crab in Da Bag!
Crab in Da Bag is truly a unique Singapore seafood restaurant. First, as you know by now, the seafood is served in plastic bags and is covered in scrumptious sauces. Bold flavours and a casual dining style – you’re encouraged to use your hands to tear apart the food that’s usually placed in the middle of the table – mean your meal is guaranteed to excite every single one of your senses. As you dine, it’s also wise to wear a bib to keep your clothes clean and put your phone in the basket provided so as not get it messy with your oh so crabby fingers.
So what can you expect from the menu? If you opt for Da Bag, choose between live Boston lobster, live yabbies, live Sri Lankan crab, crayfish, tiger prawns, Boston Bay mussels and much, much else. You can then season, spice or sweeten your bag with an array of sauces ranging from the Ultimate Curry to the Salty Splash. Just know that whatever you choose, you’ll get a good old taste of Louisiana. Crab in Da Bag is also famous in Kallang for it’s caboodle boils – huge pots of all kinds of seafood that is drained from the boil and served ceremoniously for diners to share.
Good food and drinks, especially with the introduction of the pasta, recommended by the boss. Overall good dinning experience with friendly staff and environment. Will be back when I entertain my guests for dining.
The food served were fresh and yummy! My family and I love the garlic butter prawns! Oh not forgetting the yummy tasty rice we had too!
Food is good never disappoint you. Staff friendly too. Only disadvantage have to walk a bit from the stadium open carpark and inconvenient for wheelchair but still accessible.
Have visited Crab in da Bag before at Chai Chee outlet. The present water sports outlet is bigger. Food was good, fresh n tasty. Friendly n helpful staffs. Service was good, the staff was very helpful when we have difficulty with the Alaskan crab pinchers. With the pricey price they should consider providing ice water.
Their menu have wide variety to choose from. The dipping sauces goes so well with the seafood and my favorite is Louisiana Garlic Butter! The food are well executed and seafood tastes like it was caught fresh in the morning. Service was great too! Will definitely be back again!
Staff were friendly and able to recommend dishes to us. As it was my friend's birthday, they also came with a 'cake' and surprise appearance of their mascot. My second visit and food is still as good as before!
We had hoped going from the restaurants name that a variety of Crab dishes,such as Pepper Crab, Chilli Crab ,etc would be available. The food was good . The service was good. Its not the easiest restauraunt to find though the web site map is a great help.

The food was delicious and the service was good. I especially love the view from the restaurant, overlooking Kallang river while dining is awesome. I would recommend it to my friends.
