The partnership with the acclaimed Sri Lankan restaurant brand will see a pop-up Minsitry of Crab taking over Wok Restaurant at Amilla for the Easter holidays (from April 01-14). With a flagship restaurant at Colombo’s Dutch Hospital upscale shopping precinct, the Ministry of Crab (MoC) also has international outposts in Shanghai, Manilla, Mumbai, Bangkok and at Crossroads Maldives.
Championing the seafood of the Maldives’ next-door neighbour, the Ministry of Crab’s modus operandi is using fresh quality ingredients (with a daring no-freezer policy) to create delicious fine dining cuisine. In particular, the MoC has elevated indigenous wild-caught mud crab to unparalleled levels. Aficionados frequently refer to the MoC’s mud crab dishes as ‘the best crab in the world’.
Guests can choose whether to have their crab prepared with chilli, pepper, garlic-chilli, butter or traditional Sri Lankan curry. The crabs range in size from half a kilo to the legendary 2kg ‘Crabzilla’. But the MoC also excels at many other seafood dishes, including crab liver pate, garlic-chilli freshwater prawns and much more.
