Holy Crab Bar & Restaurant has landed right in the heart of Hong Kong’s vibrant entertainment district Lan Kwai Fong after a long trip from the good ol’ US of A, bringing American-style dining, drinking and downhome fun back with it. Taking culinary tips from New Orleans and San Francisco – two of the great seafood cities of the States – they offer up dishes that make the best of the ample fresh fish on offer in Hong Kong. Catch the game on one of the nine TV screens, rack up on the pool tables, play darts or ping pong or simply enjoy a mouthwatering meal fresh from the kitchen. Whether you’re in for lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, drinks or all of the above, you can easily spend the whole day at this chill out spot in the Cosmos Building – but be sure to book if you want to go the whole nine yards.
The food and service are of good quality. We enjoy the wine as well as the atmosphere (fish tank and decoration). There is room for improvement regarding the dessert as choice is rather limited.
set lunch are in good price but the portion can be bigger for some dishes. enjoyable meal and the staff are nice and helpful. happy experience
Hong Kong is surrounded by sea, and the chefs at this American-style restaurant and bar in the Cosmos Building cook up some of the finest seafood caught anywhere in the world. The local Chinese-style of cooking is superb, but those looking for something slightly different should head down to Lan Kwai Fong in Central for an all-American meal courtesy of Holy Crab. This restaurant’s take on the fruits of the ocean is a tour of the USA, and the ingredients used couldn’t be fresher – you can pick them yourself from the pool in the centre of the restaurant. Fishing isn’t the only sport they have either: with nine huge TVs, darts, ping pong and pool tables, you can entertain yourself all day from lunchtime to afternoon tea (with swimming crab, corn and root vegetable lasagna, three kinds of Heaven fries, fish and chips and more!), through the long happy hour and late into the night, where after-dark hunger finds satisfaction with buffalo chicken wings, crabmeat spring rolls, crab dip with tortilla chips and more!
The Holy Crab culinary tour departs from Hong Kong Central and takes in some of the biggest names in American seafood. From the eastern seaboard one can taste New England clam chowder, lobster linguine, and the signature Boston lobster roll. From the south the Cajun classics of jambalaya, grilled oysters, and the low country boil, with either lobster, clams, mussels, or snow crab legs. From the west coast the San Francisco staples of Dungeness crab and cioppino, as well as plenty of Alaskan salmon. Don’t forget to try the famous Holy Crab cake, the hot beef sundae, the creamy crab dip and coconut shrimps. Lan Kwai Fong is just the jumping off point for a world of seafood delights, so book a table now and dive in.
