Guests can now taste a range of delicacies including the Kamchatka crab, brown crab, mud crab and blue crab at the DIFC branch.
With an expansive seafood menu created by Russian Chef Vladimir Mukhin, Crab Market brings the freshest catch from across the world including crabs, lobsters, oysters, scallops, salmon, tuna, prawn, shrimp, cod, sea bass, octopus and more.
Commenting on the selection of crabs, Vladimir says, “As a crustacean lover, I have dedicated a lot of time to researching the different varieties of crab, and their unique tastes and textures. We selected four of the best species that are exclusive to different regions and found a way to import them to Dubai, keeping their flavour and freshness. Guests can hand-select their crab from our large live tanks and enjoy an unforgettable meal.”
Kamchatka crab, which is also known as red king crab or Alaskan king crab is native to the Bering Sea in the North Pacific Ocean and is a popular Russian delicacy. Vladimir has blended traditional Russian techniques of cooking the Kamchatka crab with international flavours.
The brown crab, found around the Irish coast in the North Atlantic Ocean, is packed with flavour while Australian favourites blue crab and mud crab, are both known for their meat and raw flavour.
The crabs are steamed or grilled, based on the diner’s preference and served with one of Crab Market’s five signature sauces, including white pepper with ginger, garlic and butter, curry sauce, a red curry of tomatoes, lemongrass, shallots served with rice, black pepper made with oyster sauce, sweet duck soy and date syrup, champagne sauce with leek, garlic and cream and garlic chilli blended with Japanese soy sauce.
