Since this spot opened back in February 2017, Vancouverites have been lining up to get their fix of this Louisiana-inspired seafood boil restaurant at dinner.
Now, The Holy Crab is officially open for weekend lunch service too – which means there’s even more opportunity to devour the fresh-outta-the-ocean delicacies from this Robson Street eatery.
This highly-anticipated restaurant was the first location of the Indonesian chain to open in Canada. After only a few months of operation The Holy Crab has had a constant lineup out its door, reservations are needed to ensure you’ll get a spot in the spacious restaurant for a meal.
Now that this spot offers its menu in full (including these epic rolls) we anticipate the demand for Ocean Wise cajun-spiced seafood to increase even more.
Patrons can now order these crab ($12), lobster ($20), and shrimp ($9) rolls, just in time for the warmer seasons. All glazed and crispy with a healthy layer of salty lobster butter, these are definitely the snack of the summer.
You can top your rolls with housemade dipping sauces that come in Melted Butter, Garlic Pepper, Mild Cajun, Medium Cajun, Spicy Cajun, and Holy Moly Cajun varieties. You can also ask for a sampler sauce platter so you dip your seafood in a little bit of everything.
For those rainy cold days there’s also a couple of warm soup options available from The Holy Crab including Seafood Bisque and Seafood Chowder, and naturally, you need a side of oysters or deep-fried soft shell crab to go with them to make it a balanced meal.
Combine these offerings with the now-licensed establishment’s selections of beers, wines, cocktails made with housemade syrups, and the fact that the summer patio will be opening in just a matter of weeks, and you’ve got one seriously great spot for warm weather eats.
The Holy Crab is open for lunch and dinner service on weekends from 11:30 am to 10 pm, and on weekdays for dinner service only from 5 pm to around 11 pm.
