Restaurant Review: The Seafood Krub – larger than life prawns (Closed)

Located at the ground floor of the Centurion Student Living Student Hostel (opposite Selegie Rochor Beancurd stall), we discovered this 2-month old not-so-Japanese Izakaya Grill eatery by chance.



Even before stepping into The Seafood Krub, the air was scented with tantalizing whiffs of barbecue aroma.



The seafood Krub is a shrine to fresh seafood opened by an enterprising team of husband-wife-friend combo.

The dining concept is inspired by the plentiful seafood barbecue places in Thailand. Needless to say, seafood shines throughout the entire menu, however we noticed a dedicated page for poultry and meat as well.

Since it was just two of us, we went ahead with the M (size) Seafood Platter. It consisted of a variety of ocean gems like giant scampi (prawns), Japanese scallop with roe, QQ squid, giant sweet clams and blue mussels.

The dipping sauces consisted of teriyaki sauce (to brush over the grilled vegetables), a sweet Thai chili sauce and a seafood dipping sauce. The food were grilled over an UFO-looking charcoal pot.

For Instagram-worthy photo, we ordered the cheese dip and for gluttony sake, I also ordered the Truffle fries.

The ginormous prawns were a little fussy to peel but hubby couldn’t stop raving about how succulent and crunchy they were. Totally worth the effort.



I’m a squid person and I couldn’t get enough of the QQ (bouncy) texture. If you are unsure of the cooking time for the seafood, feel free to check with the friendly servers.



This is a pretty DIY (do-it-yourself) place. From getting your own water to grilling the food, you’re pretty much on your own. That being said, we very much enjoyed this interactive experience and it is not much different from any barbecue steamboat places.


Giant sweet clams.

All the seafood we tried were fresh, and reasonably priced to boot. As like all BBQ restaurants, you’ll tend to end up smelling like your food so word of advice, dress comfortably and forget about going anywhere after dinner, alternatively you could sit outdoors to avoid smelling too much. Do note they currently accept cash/nets payment.
