- Value for money
A night of cracking crabs... On the first floor of The Norfolk Hotel in Redfern you’ll find a quirky space of red and white booths, blackboard menus, fairy lights and seaside paraphernalia: canoes, beach umbrellas, crab net chandeliers, gas lamps, nets and heavy ropes. - the whole works. Designer Mike Delany has gone all out to set the seafood shack scene at The House of Crabs, allowing diners to demolish an array of crustaceans in a funky coastal setting. Even the bar has been remodelled to look like a boat. Sounds cool huh? It really is! Get ready to throw all traditional dining manners out the window because at this laid back seafood eatery anything goes. All crabs come boiled in 500g sharing bags (chose from blue swimmer, snow or king), each one as cracking and tasty as the next. Other noteworthy dishes are without a doubt the chubby Redfern prawn roll ($9) and barbecue octopus taco ($6)...if you can fit them in. So roll up your sleeves and get ready to get down and dirty while enjoying a serious seafood spread. Oh and you’ll definitely want to wear a bib, it’s nothing but messy crowd-pleasing fun at the House of Crab. Get excited!! Georgia's top dish pick: Crabs boiled in Old Bay seasoning with extra cayenne - it’s a no brainer really.
