Restaurant Review:
Mr Crab

Barsha
​Dubai

Here’s one for the seafood fans; Mr. Crab in Barsha. The tavern style restaurant boasts of a simple, cozy and pleasant décor with wooden tables, eclectic light fixtures such as mason jars and fun glass bulbs and bright flower pots decorating the outside of the restaurant. Located in Barsha, Mr. Crab obviously features a menu filled with seafood delicacies and with one of us at Stamps and Stubs being a major seafood connoisseur, our invites to Mr. Crab was greeted with excitement and ear to ear smiles! Here’s everything we had at our tasting:

Food

  • Dynamite Shrimps: Battered Shrimp Tossed In Sweet And Spicy Sauce
  • Seafood Balls: Hand Breaded With Full Crab Meat, White Rice And Spices. Served With Tartar Sauce.
  • Shrimp Taco: Soft Tortilla Filled With Battered Shrimps, Cabbage, Tamarind Sauce, Drizzled With Spicy Mayo Sauce
  • Crab Meat Taco: Crab Meat, Avocado, Taco Sauce Filled In Crispy Shell Tacos
  • Katsu Chicken Curry: Hand Breaded And Golden Fried Chicken Breast Covered With Curry Sauce And Topped With Cabbage And Carrot Slaw. Served With Rice.

Drinks & Dessert

  • Peach Frost
  • Cookie In A Pan: Soft And Moist Cookie Dough With Chocolate Chips. Topped With Vanilla Ice Cream And Drizzled With Chocolate Sauce.

Let’s begin with the dishes we enjoyed, both the taco variants were delicious as was the platter of Dynamite shrimps. The drink, although an ordinary blend, was quite tasty and complemented the food well. The Katsu curry was commonplace and we have definitely had much better elsewhere (although we’ve eaten authentic Katsu curry in Japan as well, our benchmarks are a couple of other restaurants around Dubai that come a pretty close second to making some genuine Katsu curry). While dessert sounded and looked absolutely heavenly, it fell slightly short of expectations as the cookie was too hard.

Overall, we enjoyed our experience at Mr. Crab and commend the agreeable service at the restaurant.
