Heard (but never go in depth to reading reviews) about this dining concept of having your seafood pour on the table and eating them with your bare hands. I was like 'I thought we eat or crack our crabs using our bare hands too'? Yup, but instead of serving on the plate, they served in a bag. Shake it before pouring them on a clean sheet of plastic table. And you just grab from there and eat. Quite a messy affair but that is the way Dancing Crab wants to exhibit the Louisiana dining spirit through a casual, lively and vibrant atmosphere in the restaurant. This was new to me and I can't wait to try with my husband and BFF. And please make a reservation through Chope! as it was rather crowded after 7pm.
Seafood Combo Bag #01 (Sri Lankan Crab) - $88
Came with my husband for this combo. Contained a Sri Lankan crab (a small one we got), prawns, clams, corn and sausages. Asked for mild spicy sauce and it tastes good. If needy, add some Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce or Louisiana Hot Sauce that is provided at every table. But I have to say that the price was steep and not worth it. The crab wasn't enough for 2 pax but instead the sides that complements it was more than the main (that crab). So didn't really get the hype over it.
Seafood Jambalaya $17
Came with my BFF for this and the following. She chose this out of curiousity and the first thing that comes to my mind was Paella when it was served up. Yummy and was very fragrance. But nearly got choked by the spiciness, though quite enjoyable.
Lobster Roll $29.90
This was another good choice to have. That crispy lobster meat patty drizzled with that savoury sauce on top and that buttery sandwich was commendable.
Overall if you ask whether it worths the hype or not, I would say depends on individual. Because there are other similar concepts out there like Crab In Da Bag. So go do some homework and see what they have to offer that stands out from one another.
