My favorite Salted Egg Crab

I've had 2 types of Salted Egg Crab- dry rub and wet. This crab at Master Crab has a sauce and I think it's the absolute best! I live in NYC and travel often to Singapore to see family. I will always ask to stop there and eat salted egg crab. It's not glamorous or high-end. It's just amazing... read more

We went to the Master Crab closest to Buona Vista MRT. We ordered the sweet and sour pork, deep fried chicken, yang chow fried rice and Gai lan. Plus of course their famous crabs - one in the salted egg sauce and the other chilli. I loved all the food we ordered. My favourite was the salted egg crab. There... More

We also ordered their prawn paste chicken, pumpkin taufu and yam ring, not... More

Being an avid seafood foodie, I was introduced to this "restaurant" by a local friend a few years ago, and on each trip to Singapore, this would be a mandatory visit. We've lost count of the number of times we've eaten at Master Crab @ Ghim Moh, but other than on 2 occasions, we had not been disappointed. Our favourite... More

We came to try its black pepper crab. Despite the price, the crabs are cooked to perfection. Source is tasteful and aromatic. Quite satisfied.

Very awesome. Helpful and friendly staff. Though located in the hearts of a coffeeshop, zhi char stall, but the standard is totally comparable to those in a restaurant. Been there a few times and totally will recommend friends and relatives to visit for crab feast :)

I had been told about the salted egg crab at the Ghim Moh branch for a few years now so this trip to Singapore I had to try them. I thought that the quality of the crabs was the best I've had in Singapore. Perfectly cooked and incredibly fresh/flavourful. The sauce was very pleasant... a tad sweet but with lots... More

We brought some relatives over to eat some authentic local food. It was nice and fresh from the vegetables to crab. The only drawback was the price which we found very expensive for local food even given that we ate one crab.
