Sick of the same old same old? Crab & Crew is a brand new addition to the dining scene at Al Ain Palace Hotel and gives you the chance to get your glad rags on (ok by this we mean gloves and aprons!) and get down and dirty with on-the-table seafood!It’s great value for money, made better by the fact that they have great deals available every night of the week on combo meals combined with ice tea or draught beer - you can go as big as you like to cater for a larger group and add on seafood buckets & drinks as you need to.
How does it work? The table is dressed with greaseproof paper and the food is served straight onto the table. Aprons and gloves are available if you want them – we thought we didn’t at first and couldn’t have been more wrong! - but you can have a plate instead if that’s more your thing. Once you’re kitted out, it’s time to get stuck in, with a variety of tools to work with! – we love a crab cracker!
COMBO MEALS - We went for the combo meal for 2 which consisted of crabs, prawns, mussels, king fish, crab balls and corn on the cob. We chose the Asian mushroom sauce which was deliciously dark, rich and earthy with a hint of spice - soooo good! The combo deal also comes with lovely home-made ice tea or two pints of draught beer - happy days!! If there’s more of you, just increase the combo size - you get more seafood and more drinks for your money and it works out to be great value. Rice is unlimited when you order any bucket or combo, and it’s really useful for keeping the sauce from running off the table!
You can also order seafood buckets by 1/2 or 1 kg, so for the full experience we added in a 1/2 kg each of crab, mussels and prawns with the awesome C&C special sauce on the crab, the super-tasty crackling Cajun sauce on the mussels and roasted garlic and lemon on the prawns. All these were good in their own way but it was the Crab & Crew special sauce with a hint of coconut and chilli combined with the soft and tender crab meat that was the winner for me. The addition of a zesty citrus salad with avocado rounded the meal off perfectly.
This is a great affordable weeknight time with friends or a weekend get-together. The drinks menu is also well-priced which means you can really make a night of it without breaking the bank. Live music from a talented singer helped the evening go with a swing - she takes requests too! ~Crab & Crew is a definite must-try!
