You don't need to travel to Singapore to eat the famous Singapore Chilli Crabs. Since 1982 Harry's Dining Group has been dishing up these delicious delights in Sydney. From his first days at Eastlakes and now in two Sydney restaurant locations: Harry's Singapore Chilli Crab and Walsh Bay Crab House.
Everybody that's ever been to Sydney knows Harry's Singapore Chilli Crab. Even if for some strange reason you've never eaten there, the distinctive long-time signage near Central Station had every Sydney-sider drooling and craving the superb Singaporean classic chilli crab dish every time they passed.
After 50 years, 2023 has been a big year for Harry's Dining Group. Harry's original restaurant Harry's Singapore Chilli Crab has recently relocated to its new Potts Point digs, and while the sister restaurant Walsh Bary Crab House is not relocating it's had its own renovation. So, it was time to put Harry's face on again, as we donned our plastic bibs at the newly upgraded Walsh Bay Crab House. Yes, eating the famous Harry's Singapore Chilli Crab with Harry's secret sauce can get messy. Whatever the location. As well as putting on your bib, make sure to order the super duper buns for sauce mopping.
The Walsh Bay restaurant offers seafood taste sensations beyond the famous dish. Massive mud crab spectaculars from the 16 World Renowned Mud Crab options start with Harry's Singapore Mud Crab as no. 1. Other Harry's mud crab options range from Harry's Black Pepper Crab and Harry's Garlic Butter Crab, through Hong Kong Salted Egg Crab and XO Sauce Crab With Vermicilli to Sichuan Sauteed Crab With Dried Chilli and Fried Typhoon Shelter Crab. The other crab options are worth exploring just for the names, don't you think?
But don't stop there. From appetizers such as Pacific Oysters , in their half shell, terrific taste adventures travel to Imperial Ostera Caviar (either Old World bumped with vodka or New Era with grilled scallops on a mother-of-pearl plate), Scampi Sashimi and Abalones. Walsh Bay Crab House also offers Live Lobster, Live Parrot Fish, Eastern Balmain Bugs and more seafood.
Yet the ultimate to include in your Walsh Bay Crab House menu is the good luck dish Fatt Choy Yu Sheng, sashimi salad with edible 24k gold!
Even if you have a mate who doesn't eat seafood (some people are allergic as I understand) you can bring them and make them jealous. Well not too jealous, they can enjoy Pecking Duck, chicken or meat (pork belly, steak, lamb).
The way to really make everyone jealous, however, is to turn your delicious Harry's Walsh Bay waterside feast into a full experience, by arriving by water from Watsons Bay, Rose Bay, Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, Gladesville/Huntleys Point, Drummoyne Bay, Mosman or Manly.
