Long seafood brunch at Holy Crab

Long seafood brunch at Holy Crab (Central)
Usually brunches finish around 3pm and by the time you get up, you end up missing brunch because it is 3pm by the time you get there.
Here it finishes at 5 so you have plenty of time to enjoy a seafood brunch.

At the entrance, there is live seafood with a pricelist and other items for sale such as Nuclear sauce.

There is a la carte brunch or the bottomless seafood bucket for $418.
I went for the seafood bucket where you get to choose two courses followed by the seafood.

If you are looking for Southern comforts you should try evenings because they have fried okra salad, watermelon consomme, Jambalaya and other dishes which I plan to try later.

For the first course, we chose all three.
Southern swimmer benedict:
American homemade herb breakfast cake topped with Alaskan salmon, southern style hollandaise and salmon roe.

Southern love on a plate:
Homemade sausage patty with scrambled eggs on a buttermilk biscuit smothered in Southern style gravy.

Crab and meat benedict:
American homemade Andouille and blue crab breakfast cake, topped with grilled sausage and poached egg in southern style hollandaise sauce.

The second course was simpler, it was either caesar salad or fruits.

The fruits were rather sweet but there was tart yoghurt to balance it.
Finally it was seafood which comes with five sauces: cocktail, tartar, honey mustard, Cajun mayonnaise and Sweet chili sauce.

To be honest, the broth at the bottom of the bucket tasted really nice when you dipped the seafood into it.
They give you aprons just like they do in America.

Prawns were huge. Lobsters were springy and the crabs were fresh.
All of the above were bottomless.
There is a similar place that serves seafood in a bag in Hong Kong but there are more authentic Southern choices here.
