Calling all crab lovers! Tis’ the season to be jolly, because the crab madness buffet is all the rage right now at Penang St. Buffet. Located at Causeway Point, you can expect a big feast of 10 different types of crabs ranging from the usual flavours of chilli crab to unique new flavours like stuffed chicken in crab. Only till 30 September 2016! Under the GDGROUP umbrella, you can also find all traces of Penang in their Gurney Drive and Penang Culture outlets.

G & J: We were honestly spoilt for choice, and while each crab had its own ubiquitous flavour, we were impressed by the kam heong, butter and stuffed chicken in crab flavours! If you like crab roe, the stuffed chicken in crab will be your best bet. Tear open the crusts and help yourself to chunks of meat and roe in the shells, yum!
Other dishes in the buffet include:
Penang Prawn Mee G & J: The broth of this was so rich and round, yet light on the tongue. They were able to capture the right texture and taste of authentic Penang prawn mee. We know because we just came back from Penang! Also, you can see that there’s crab meat inside this dish, reminiscent of the crab madness. Everything crab!
MantousG & J: You can use these crispy buns to dip into any of the crab sauces we have listed above.
Kueh Pie TiSatays & OystersPenang-style RojakYou can also order freshly grilled seafood at the counters: G & J: The seafood was very fresh, but sadly the sambal did not do it justice.
Overview of the buffet: G & J: Desserts include cookies, cake pops, crème brûlée, ice-cream, and durian chendol.
Overall, we enjoyed the food and ambience, and even if you’re not a fan of crab, the other buffet options make up for it.
