At Ministry of Crab, we treat ingredients with the utmost respect. We only use the freshest ingredients and source only the highest quality mud crabs from Sri Lanka. Sustainability is at the core of our ethos, and we do not serve crabs below 500g. We are devoted to ensuring that our crabs and prawns are the stars on the plate.
The ‘Constitution’ communicates the values of our flagship restaurant in Colombo and our commitment to the quality and freshness of our ingredients, as well as towards delivering a memorable experience to our guests.
We serve export quality Mud Crab primarily procured from Sri Lanka's northern coastal lagoons and air-flown to Shanghai weekly.
The crabs we serve at Ministry of Crab are not farmed and are wild-caught, sustainably harvested from their natural habitat and their availability is influenced by seasonal factors like rainfall, strong winds, and ambient temperature. We apologize in advance if the specific crab size you desire is unavailable.
What distinguishes these crabs are their impressive size and wholeness with both claws intact with rich and flavourful claw meat. Ministry of Crab maintains stringent standards, offering only the best catch – no small, meatless, or unevenly sized crabs.
The magnificent mud crab, ranging from ½ Kilo (500g) to the 2kg Crabzilla, is prepared one of five ways - Chilli, Pepper, Garlic Chilli, Butter Crab or Sri Lankan Curry Crab, to best suit your palate.
It is a privilege for us to serve these legendary Sri Lankan Mud crabs to our guests in Shanghai.
