Cut the Crab – It’s time to get messy

Dining | Written By, NOW! BALI |

Here’s a restaurant where you can’t expect pretty table linen, simply because you won’t need any. At the newly-opened Crab Bar, feel free to get messy and eat crabs the way they should be eaten: with your hands! Despite its recent opening, Crab Bar in Batu Belig is getting more popular with visitors and locals alike, especially for dinner – though they are also open for lunch. You don’t need plates in this restaurant, for your food is served on the table! Knife and fork are of course available in case you need them.

Despite its recent opening, Crab Bar in Batu Belig is getting more popular with visitors and locals alike, especially for dinner – though they are also open for lunch. You don’t need plates in this restaurant, for your food is served on the table! Knife and fork are of course available in case you need them.

The restaurant’s “CB’s Bag Hot” consists of 300gr of mud crab, 150gr of prawn, 200gr of clams, corn, and sausage – all wrapped in a plastic bag and, once ripped and torn, you can smell the delicious aroma of the seafood with the (chosen) sauce. The table is covered with banana leaves and transparent waxed paper, so the food doesn’t seep through.

The menu at Crab Bar is very simple; you just need to choose your fresh seafood and the cooking method (boiled, fried, smoked), and the spice level of your sauce (mild, medium, or TNT). The seafood that you order will be cooked and then placed in a plastic bag then mixed with the special sauces. Sauces are grouped into hot (CB’s Bali Sauce, Bangka Curry Sauce, Chili Sauce, Teriyaki Black Pepper, Garlic Butter, Smoked Cajun Butter) and cold (Garlic Mayo, Tomato Tartar, Tom Yam Mayo).

Of course, other items such as green salad, calamari strips, and chicken wings are also on offer to give you more options to choose from. I personally would just go with the restaurant’s “Yummy Bag” items (this includes CB’s Hot Bag) as they are the house specialties.!
