The Place Located the The Venue Shoppes along Tai Thong Crescent in Potong Pasir, the few weeks old Kenny’s Krabbi is a casual restaurant with a focus on crab dishes. The restaurant is just a few doors away from one of our favourite beef noodles, the Original Orchard Emerald Beef Noodle. The casual and small space is able to accommodate less than 50 people.
The Food The price range is huge, and goes from S$6.90 for Sliced Fish Soup all the way to S$68 for the Braised Crab Bee Hoon (800g). Other than a series of crabby dishes like the Rich Broth Crab Bee Hoon and Singapore Chilli Crab, there are also options like Seafood Crispy Noodles (S$8.90) and Seafood Hor Fun (S$8.90). We started with some sides like the Homemade Crabmeat Roll (S$6.90) and Signature Braised Pork Belly with Leaf Bun (S$3). The crabmeat roll is akin to Ngo Hiang, which is quite delicious.
For mains, we had the Rich Broth Crab Bee Hoon 600g Crab (S$20/half portion). While the crab is quite fresh, I find the broth to be a tad diluted as I was expecting a much richer flavour.
Similarly, the broth of the Sliced Fish Soup (S$6.90) is not rich enough for me. A rather bland rendition of it.
The dish I enjoyed more is the Crispy Noodle with Deep Fried Salmon (S$11). Even though the salmon tasted a little burnt from over frying, the crispy noodle was rather enjoyable.
Another safe option to go for is the Crabmeat and Shrimp Fried Rice (S$11.90). I am surprised by how big the portion is, which can easily feed two people. There are chunks of crabmeat and shrimp if you are usually lazy to use your hands to de-shell a crab.
Rants The crab dishes are predictably expensive though there are other more wallet friendly options like the fish soup and fried rice.
Will I Return Again? The dishes I tried at Kenny’s Krabbi are quite forgettable. If any, it is an alternative to the coffeeshops at Tai Thong Crescent, though I will choose to return to Orchard Emerald Beef Noodles in the same development any time.
