“Great place for crabs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Laid back casual place with a great variety of crab dishes ... And for a small extra fee they will even de-shell them for you. A small place so would recommend a reservation or get there early!

“Juicy & succulent crabs that do not burn a hole in your pocket...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Momma Kong’s Crab Shack is a great place to relax (screens live football outdoors) and feast on delicious crabs and booze (happy hours are from 5-7 pm). The greatest draw of this place is definitely the standard price of $38 for 650g of Sri Lankan mud crab (sufficient for 2 persons) or $110 for any 3 crabs (cooked in different style) compared to the typical chinese restaurant which usually just list it as seasonal price. So you won't get a shock when the bill come!
Need i say more about the crabs? They are succulent, tender and come out in whole chunks! One of my kept secret for good crabs in Singapore.

“Clean little Crab House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed chili crab here. Wished I had more people with me and could Alia have tried pepper crab.

Skip the chicken chunk appetizer.

Small restaurant in Chinatown on Mosque street. 6 tables inside and 3 outside.

Clean.

Completely lacking I. Touristic. Almost did not want to review and let the secret out.

One for one beer til 7:30.

“Must-visit for excellent crabs & hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

Holy crabs! If you're looking for great food in a non-traditional seafood restaurant setting, this is it. The crabs are fresh, the mantous awesome. Be prepared to be have a laugh/drink or two with the affable Kong brothers. They'll keep you coming back for more!

“Recommended!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

First visit impressions - Black Pepper Crabs packed a punch, piping hot crispy "Man Tous" (buns) were out of this world, and their spicy Ikan Bilis starters were just perfect. if you're ever in Singapore's CBD area and have a craving for a local crab dish - this has to be the place!
