Dancing Crab (VivoCity) – American-Style Seafood

I saw many people posting pictures of themselves wearing a bib at a seafood restaurant. Google search reveals that this restaurant is Dancing Crab, a seafood concept restaurant by Tung Lok Group.

Dancing Crab has two outlets, one in VivoCity and another at Orchard Central. I went to the  VivoCity outlet, which is located on level 3, opposite Marche Movenpick.

Dancing Crab mainly serves American-style seafood which remind me of the Cajun on Wheels stall in PasarBella in Suntec City Mall.

There are various combos to choose from, depending on the number of people and type of seafood. This is the ala carte menu for your reference.

Dancing Crab - Live Crab ComboOne of the most popular combo is Live Crab Combo 招牌“卡真”辣酱斯里兰卡蟹海鲜包 [S$108] which comes with 1 live Sri Lankan crab (approximately 800g), 350g Prawns, 350g Flower Clam plus an assortment of chicken sausages and corn.

There are 5 sauces to choose from:  Signature Cajun Sauce (Signature Cajun Sauce (spicy), Zesty Garlic Butter Sauce (mild spicy), White Pepper Cream Sauce (mild spicy), Mala Sauce (very spicy) and Beurre Blanc Sauce (non-spicy).

We chose their Signature Cajun Sauce which is a blend of paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, pepper and oregano. It is not as spicy as what the menu suggests but rather salty.

The seafood are very fresh, the Sri Lankan crab is plump with lots of firm flesh. This is perfect for sharing between 3-4 persons.

Dancing Crab - Crab Cake

Crab Cake 炸蟹饼 [S$22.60 for 2 pieces] is perfect for those who want to eat crab meat but lazy to remove the meat themselves. The crispy exterior contrasts with the moist filling filled with morsels of crab meat. Dunk it in the accompanying tartar sauce for creamy enjoyment.

Even though it is a little pricey, but the quality seafood and great ambience makes Dancing Crab a great place to host friends.
