    if u ask 10 ppl u will get 10 different answers.. head to East Coast, the are a cluster of seafood restaurant there, such as Jumbo, Red House n No Signboard. Jumbo also has an outlet at Clarke Quay n No Signboard at Geylang. If u like to venture further out there is Melben at Ang Mo Kio n Ubin Seafood at Changi Village. Chilli crabs go by weight, roughly about $45 per kilo. If there are two of u a carb would suffice, if there are three of u get two smaller crabs. And don't forget the mantou buns..

    Walkietalkie has covered pretty much all about chili crab. My favorite restaurant is Melben amongst the others. But I also suggest butter cream crab which is as delicious as the chili one.

    Yes, I would recommend Melben whose primary menu is crabs. There are 2 branches, one in 232 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 and the other in 211 Lorong 8 Toa Payoh. You can use Google Map to locate the restaurant and how to get there.

    I, frequent the Toa Payoh branch and is, usually, crowded though not many tourists can be spotted there. One of their most popular being the creamy soup crab noodle served in a claypot.

    The queue/waiting time can be quite long from 6:00pm to 8:30pm.

    I would recommend a place which is hardly ever mentioned. I've been freuqenting it before (have not gone there in a few years) But still I'm going to share it. It's called Chai Chee Seafood Restaurant. It's on Changi Road, a little way up from Masjid Kassim (mosque). Their price range was between $22-$28 per dish. And they had a variety of Chilli Crab dishes. I found their food fresh and proportions generous. Bests! And do share if you end up checking it out :)

    We have been to Chai Chee Restaurant, or was that Kampong Chai Chee Restaurant? There are two similar sounding seafood restaurants near each other... We have been to both but I can't recall which is better.. yes, those little known streets restaurants tend to serve better dishes though they can be a bit of a distance for tourists..

    I've eaten at a lot of places but I think Mellben Seafood serves the best chilli crab. I always go to Toa Payoh branch though!
