Yo yo! Are there any crab lovers out there? I am! But I'm too lazy and not very good in deshelling them :p Well, I'll explore a brief review of our fantastic experience 2 weeks ago in Crazy Crab, the barely opened restaurant in town which serves crab as their main. Not only that, to add on the hype, the crab is not even the usual type, its the C R A Z Y type. LOL. Crazy Crab is located in level 3 Sun Plaza, occupying one of the spaces of XO Suki & Dimsum (only the dimsum area) which was somehow closed down (since don't know when). Their restaurant could be easily seen, precisely right on the left side of the entrance glass door from the parking lot. It's a fairly convinient spot that we don't need to wander around the whole mall to locate this place. It takes only a good 3 mins walk from the parking lot to reach there, if you are lucky enough to get the parking on that very level. Look at that comical Crazy Crab icon! Hahaha.
I can say that the owner is definitely no way an OCD personality, the idea of seating and table is being done not in color and type order. They have like umpteenth different types and colors of chairs. Rattan chair, plastic chair, garden chair, wooden chair, the store has all sorts of chairs to accommodate the customers! lol. As for the wall painting, it's very interesting. The cross eyed crazy crab makes its appearance in almost every corner of the store. Hahaha.
Sink area in the restaurant is located right beside the smoking zone, which is a minus point to me or those who don’t smoke.But then, I didn’t see any “smoking is available here” signage near that area, either.
Lighting is sufficient here, hence the good shots 🙂
Their menu is printed on a large piece of tabloid-sized paper and they have 2 main dishes that appear as the headline of the menu, COMBO BAG 1 (with crab) and COMBO BAG 2 (without crab). COMBO BAG 1 : Idr. 388,000.- We ordered the COMBO BAG 1, which consist of 600 grams of Crazy Crabs, 300 grams of sea prawns, 250 grams of white clams and 250 grams of squids, with potato, sweet corn on cob, western sausages and carrots in angry curry sauce. We are spicy eaters, so we gave the white cream sauce a miss. This was my very first crab-on-the-table (literally ON THE TABLE) experience. After the order was placed, the waiter came and covered the table with plastic, so we will be eating directly from the table. 2 staffs approached our table 30 minutes later, holding a hot pan with gloves. Inside was the piping hot combo seafood stuffed in plastic bag, the staffs then poured it onto the table in front of us. We WOW-ed and OHH-ed simultaneously. Seriously, it's fun watching the crabs, the prawns, the squids and all poured out of the plastic! LOL.
Idr. 388K++ for one pack, which could feed 3-4 people, according to the staff, left us feeling fully satisfied, thoroughly stuffed and completely bloated. The crabs, the prawns, the squids and the clams were of good quality. Especially the crabs and the prawns, they were in big sizes and juicy. Here again the my self-proclaimed great shot of the seafood, which gains close to 200 likes on Instagram. Woohoo! We will surely visit them again SOON, I mean real SOON. We love the eating-from-the-table concept. We are also very keen to try out the rest of the menu besides the COMBO BAG, which is named CRAZY-LONE on the menu. The crabs, the prawns, the clams and the squids are all lonely and separately served. Besides, we are also curious with their other sauces, namely : spicy garlic crazy crab (level 1-5), white pepper sauce, black pepper sauce and white cream sauce. To add on the information, they offer western dishes as well. But we didn't bother to try that out since we were there for CRABS, only CRABS. Address : Crazy Crab Sun Plaza Level 3 Medan, Indonesia.
