This Singaporean seafood favourite received a light makeover in September 2011, though happily it has since retained the same culinary qualities that have made it a Dubai institution. An array of live sea creatures await their fate in the display counters, while an army of chefs busy themselves in the open kitchen preparing a range of Asian seafood specialities, from fish head curry to curry laksa. Of course it’d be a crime to visit without ordering the dish from which the restaurant takes its name and though it’s costly, it’s worth every last dirham – the peppercrab proves a medley of texture and flavour. Aside from the quality (if not slightly expensive) food, Peppercrab is a great place for large groups and families, which are catered to marvellously by efficient and friendly staff.
