HolyCrab is excited to begin the next adventure at their new home – the iconic Capitol Arcade, located in the cultural district in the heart of Singapore.
A forerunner of Singapore’s much loved private dining scene, HolyCrab originally offered the unique experience of dining in Chef Elton’s abode, more than a decade ago back in 2009. And how better to get guests’ hands off their phones? Keep their hands busy savouring some awesome crabs! And that, was how HolyCrab was borne, a lovechild of Chef Elton’s passion for both eating and cooking.
In 2017, Chef Elton decided to pull out all stops to take on the unchartered waters and challenges of opening a brick and mortar shop. HolyCrab was given life and body, in the shape of a quaint little 25-seater shophouse at its previous location of Tan Quee Lan Street.
The playfulness of HolyCrab’s creations has delighted many more guests since its humble beginnings. HolyCrab offers bold, distinct flavours, forged by a fiery need for “WokHei” (breath of the wok).
HolyCrab works with many different suppliers to bring you the freshest Sri Lanka crabs to the shores of our sunny island. Rest assured that all crabs at HolyCrab are of the highest quality and free from antibiotics. View their menu here.
Enjoy comforting Dim Sum delights at their alfresco seating area along the Singapore River from 11.30am – 5pm daily.

Chinese cuisine is vast and varied, but no matter the region or province, you are guaranteed a delicious and comforting meal. The newly opened Tang Lung restaurant wants to capture that essence — all set against the backdrop of a slick, modern restaurant that pays homage to an era when traditional Chinese opera flourished.
Perched on the breezy Robertson Quay, Tang Lung boasts a wide array of Chinese cuisines from various regions, all with a distinctively modern twist: think luscious Steamed Flower Crabs in Shaoxing Wine, addictively buttery Pineapple Char Siew Tarts and crackling Deep Fried Soon Hock in Superior Soya Sauce.
With an expansive spread of over 60 dishes, Tang Lung is the perfect location for casual business lunches, decadent dim sum high teas, and hearty family dinners alike.
The restaurant’s star dish is undoubtedly the Steamed Flower Crab in Shaoxing Wine. The delicate, luscious meat of the flower crab is given a new dimension with the addition of the restaurant’s special sauce which contains a combination of sweet, fermented rice, spiced Shaoxing wine and soul-warming chicken oil that is made in-house. In this dish, two live flower crabs lie on a bed of fresh vermicelli noodles, which, after absorbing the juices and sauce from the crabs, make for a dish that is near revelatory.
The Steamed Glutinous Rice with Crab Roe might take at least half an hour to reach your table, but it is well worth the wait. The once-ordinary dish of glutinous rice gets a heady do-over at Tang Lung – cubes of Shiitake mushrooms, shredded dried scallops, Chinese ham, and crab roe are mixed into the rice and fried. The two sweet Yellow Roe Crabs and glutinous rice are first steamed separately, and then together for just the right amount of time inside a cheese cloth to impart a distinctive umami taste to the dish. Here is a secret — the best part of the dish is the rice beneath the crabs which soaks up all the juices from the tender crustaceans as it steams.
At SHAO on Frankel Avenue, they have created a unique menu, centring around the theme of roasts and barbeques.
SHAO’s Signature BBQ Crab has its roots in the traditional Teochew Cold Crab. From the traditional recipe, they infused tastes and eating styles from different cultures and after many iterations, the BBQ Crab was born.
Their BBQ crabs are seasoned with sea salt, crushed black pepper and our signature BBQ sauce. This guarantees that their crabs retain that fresh, juicy and natural taste. Eat it as it is or with their special homemade chili sauce, wasabi sauce or salt & pepper dip.

The Bar & Billiard Room at Raffles Hotel marks a new era with its return to a storied and sophisticated, yet relaxed bar and lounge specialising in whisky, original and imaginative cocktails, craft beers and high quality cigars.
Noted as the oldest existing bar in its original location in Singapore, the Bar & Billiard Room will now present up to 400 curated whiskies alongside an entirely new cocktail list and bar menu.
With a beautiful room and outdoor covered terraces, the unique and historic setting at Bar & Billiard Room naturally lends itself to the new evolution. The Bar & Billiard Room will also serve as an everyday meeting place as well as for special occasions.
Christoph B. Nyfeler shares his 16 years of whisky experience as Raffles Singapore’s Resident Whisky Expert. Of the 400 hand selected whiskies, many are limited editions and directly imported for the bar. The whisky list boasts a strong Scottish presence with a good selection of American bourbons and Japanese whiskies rounding off the collection.
To add special interest, Christoph will host whisky events such as whisky appreciation masterclasses and whisky dinners regularly. He can also create exclusive whisky pairing menus for groups and corporate events of up to 20 people. You can share your individual taste preferences with Christoph who will then customise a dinner menu where courses are paired with different types of single malt whiskies.
Equal attention has been given to the new whisky-led cocktails created by Raffles Singapore Restaurant and Bar Operations Manager Randolph Velasco and his award-winning bartenders. With special skills and knowledge of infused liqueurs and house-made bitters, the team have based the bar’s new concoctions on classic cocktails with a modern twist in Menu highlights include the BBR 1896, a nod to the year the Bar & Billiard Room was established. The complex cocktail is a delight for the senses; the bourbon is first fat-washed in butter for a creamy mouth feel and savoury flavour, mixed with Angostura bitters, smoked with chamomile tea leaves for a subtle, floral aroma and finally garnished with a slice of orange peel.
The Old Nick was a favourite tipple for navy officers who needed some liquid courage before heading out to sea. The Bar & Billiard Room’s version is a combination of Scotch whisky, thyme liqueur, Dom Benedictine, orange and lemon bitters. The comprehensive cocktail menu encompasses other base spirits such as gin, tequila and vodka as well. Look forward to the Miss “H”, Randolph’s take on the ubiquitous martini featuring kiwi, Cointreau, lime, and muddled kiwi fruit.
Bar bites include a selection of sophisticated nibbles and more substantial sharing plates. An array of cold and hot dishes can either be enjoyed as an accompaniment to drinks or as full-fledged meal. Menu highlights include Crabmeat Cigars, shredded fresh crab meat wrapped in vine leaves.
For a sweet finish in keeping with the bar's theme, Chocolate Whisky Stones are available in three different flavours – dark, milk and white chocolate.

The Bar & Billiard Room also houses one of the five original billiard tables from the turn of the century and you are invited to have a game over drinks. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the bar will feature live jazz.
Designed by Hui Designs, it showcases painted wooden wall panels in coastal blue, brightly coloured tiles, oak wood and ‘old-world’ checkered vinyl tiles flooring, juxtaposed with cane furniture, baskets, bamboo blinds, nautical-themed artwork and palm trees.
