For many locals and tourists alike, Chili Crab is a die-die-must-try when in Singapore. It’s tangy, spicy, and hits all the right spots. Besides chili crab, this food paradise we call home is no stranger to many other succulent crab options, from black pepper crab to creamy butter crab.
With so many options out there, we’ve done the legwork of shortlisting some of the most clawsome places in Singapore. Read on to find out the 10 Best Crab Deliveries In Singapore for your next party or gathering.

With a reputation for serving only the freshest seafood cooked to perfection, we’d definitely recommend the JUMBO Award-Winning Chilli Crab (S$92) that has captured the hearts of local and overseas gastronomes, with a gravy that boasts a stronger tomato taste than most. More reason to lap up all that saucy goodness with a delicious man too, am I right?
