Crabtain is a no-fuss, casual, Guangdong restaurant in Wan Chai serving excellent food at very reasonable prices. The chef-owner used to work at the well-known Michelin-starred Cantonese chain Lei Garden. The signature must-order dish is definitely the crab congee, which is fantastic. The deep orange congee is filled with crab roe, a whole crab, and crab broth, resulting in a beautiful, richly flavored congee that’s filled with crab umami.
Crabtain offers English menus (yay!), though it’s hit-or-miss whether the server will speak English. Thankfully, there’s usually at least one person who speaks decent English, and they’ll flag that person over if you really need to communicate.
The interior is comfortable, casual, and pretty simple. It’s not a huge restaurant, but then I’ve never seen it so full that I cannot get a seat….
