Enjoy a crackin’ meal at The Crab House in Patong

PHUKET: Get ready to get your hands dirty. With shells cracking, sending fragments flying all over the place, dining at the The Crab House in Patong isn’t your average meal out – it’s an experience.

“We have something very special here, something nobody else has – the biggest mud crabs in Thailand. They come from a secret location, and we have a supply for the entire year,” says Narapong Phoneam, the restaurant’s marketing director.

With four different kinds of crab on the menu, The Crab House is the crustacean’s one true home in Phuket. Served in a variety of styles and with an array of sauces, the meat might be difficult to get to, but it’s well worth the effort.

However, if you like to take it easy at the table, you can order pure crabmeat and let the experienced chefs do the cracking and extracting for you.

There are other seafood and non-seafood dishes on the menu – lobster, prawns, duck, pork and more.

They all taste great, but it’s the giant mud crabs and their smaller counterparts that without a doubt steal the show at the The Crab House.

And it’s a cracking one!
