Was there yesterday for dinner with a friend. Excited about having "ang-moh" style crabs as it'll be my virgin moment for it but wasn't too sure about the thought of no cutlery dining; kinda unglam... Love at first sight with the whimsical wall doodles and the whole restaurant decor when I stepped in. Served with a handful of crispy fish flavored crackers as pre-meal snacks...

Captain's Choice Combo consisting of Sri Lanka Crab and Shrimps with baby potatoes in hot fully loaded sauce. The sauce was very addictive; combination of both Cajun and Garlic Butter. There is a hint of spices perfuming the seafood, and the different layers of flavors in the sauce is pretty distinctive... Spice level goes from mild, medium to hot depending on individual preference. The hot level I picked did bring a little heat to the party but it's not extreme spiciness. The whole marriage of freshness of the seafood, the firm baby potatoes and the irresistible sauce made me getting all my fingers messy and uncontrollably licking the sauce off them repeatedly... There's also some lime and salt pepper provided... Tried squeezing some lime juice onto the shrimps and it bring a different refreshing taste... Zero feeling of unglam as every diner had their fingers soaking in the sauce, getting busy with the food. Messy is the new sexy...

The restaurant operators, Eldric and Nigel were very friendly, came over to have a few small chats, making sure that the food, service etc were all good and if there's any suggestions for further improvements... The only con was the menu, personally I find it a little limited on choices. However they are in the midst of fine tuning it, and will be adding more items to it. Heard that they will do a new flavor or type of seafood monthly, I will definitely return for their possibly clam special next month...
