Pohang Seafood & Butchery has raw marinated crabs

True-blue fans of Korean food would know how expensive raw marinated crabs can be in Singapore. Cue Pohang Seafood & Butchery, a Korean restaurant that offers this labour-intensive dish at half the price of what you would get in most restaurants. Even better news: they have two outlets across the country, Beauty World and Lavender.

The Marinated Raw Crab Meal takes the limelight here, and you can enjoy this at $18++ during lunchtime, and $20++ for dinner. Each set comes with two raw marinated crabs, a huge bowl of sashimi rice topped with seaweed bits, and about four different types of banchan.

They only serve about 200 servings of crabs every day, so we encourage you to head down as early as possible to avoid a wasted trip.

If you’re there just for the crabs, we recommend opting for the Marinated Raw Crab ($58++) instead. This huge plate can feed up to three people, and tastes best when paired with a warm bowl of rice—mix the sweet-salty soy sauce, plump crab meat, and short-grain rice for the full experience.

Your visit to a Korean restaurant isn’t complete without getting a stew. Their Army Stew ($45++) is a popular choice as you get a bit of everything in a single dish: tofu, kimchi, sausages, noodles and more. For something a little more refreshing, get the Fishcake Stew ($35++) that’s perfect for two or three diners.
