Mr. Crab Amsterdam: for fresh fish, lobsters and oysters in the city center

22 August 2017

come to Mr. Crab Amsterdam for mussels and king crab

We have some good news for everybody who loves, loves, loves  seafood. A little while ago a fish walhalla opened its doors in Amsterdam and believe us, you really would like to go here. And if I say a fish walhalla, I mean a fish walhalla. At Mr. Crab Amsterdam you can order a lot of different types of seafood, prepared in a lot of different ways. From a Norwegian shrimp cocktail to grilled lobster with truffle mayonnaise, bouillabaisse soup and in wine cooked mussels. But also grilled oysters with spinach and cheese, grilled king crab, breaded red mul filet and freshly baked Dutch kibbeling. WOW, I am getting fish cravings…

Besides that, there is something else that’s nice at Mr. Crab Amsterdam. They remind us of the seafood restaurants in countries like Vietnam and Thailand. Restaurants that prepare your favourite catch of the day fresher than fresh and in most cases super tasty in front of your nose. For this experience, because yes that’s what it is, you no longer have to sit in an airplane for 18 hours to Asia. At Mr. Crab Amsterdam you can also decide for yourself what you are going to eat tonight. Choose your lobster, squid, mackerel, mussels, tuna fillet, gambas or one of the other sea food and tell the chef how you would like to eat your Catch of the Day. Return to your table and wait for your freshly prepared meal as patient as possible. So nice!
