Weighing 2kg and above, our Crabzillas are not just about the size; it is textural. A single claw weighs around 500g.

All lagoon crabs served at Ministry of Crab are wild-caught and sourced from the coastal areas of Sri Lanka's Northern hemisphere. Here in Colombo, these crabs are the freshest you could ever get as we source crabs within a maximum of 12hrs by road.

Black pepper known as the “black gold” of spice is native to Sri Lanka and adds a distinct earthen flavor and rich aroma to the signature Pepper Crab dish at Ministry of Crab!
The unique black speckled sheen in the dish is a result of the daily made black pepper dashi, and its heat is derived from the peppercorns hand-ground using our traditional grinding stone, the “Mirisgala”. #MinistryofCrab #KeepCalmandCrabOn #Colombo #SriLanka #DharshanMunidasa #DharshanMunidasaRestaurants #Crabzilla #PepperCrab #Mirisgala #Pepper

Curry has been a culinary staple in Sri Lanka for centuries. Sri Lankan curries most often blend together a myriad of spices including the simple yet hugely flavourful curry leaf in a coconut milk broth. Our Curry Crab is starring our majestic lagoon crabs.⠀

Photograph by @thomaspeschak “CRABZILLA” Shooting the world’s largest terrestrial crab on assignment for @natgeo magazine was a photographic challenge like no other.

Coconut crabs bear uncanny resemblance to many of the oversized beasts that feature prominently in a slew of 1950 horror films with titles like “Attack of the Crab Monsters” “Tarantula” and “Attack of the Giant Leeches”. I wanted my photograph to pay homage to this cinematic era so I decided to focus on and let the crab’s iconic oversized shadow dominate the picture. Using an array of lightening techniques (remote flashes and torches) I managed to throw the shadow of a crab (that is just out of frame) onto the coral rock wall of a decaying building. My assistant/biologist @wildisee squatted in the doorway and illuminated a second crab walking into frame with his headtorch.

For this shot to work the shadow had to be just right, clearly showing the pincers, legs and antennae. It took forever for all the elements to come together. It was only in the early hours of the morning that I finally gazed at this exact image on the back of my camera screen and knew that I could finally get some sleep… and what did I dream of that night… Giant Crabs of course.

To see a close up of the mysterious crab behind the giant shadow follow me @thomaspeschak and check my feed in one hour.

O crab! 🦀 @ministryofcrab
It has become a ritual to savour Dharshan Munidasa’s delectable #crabs everytime I visit #SriLanka
After spending a splendid 4 nights @anantarakalutara checked out early to have lunch at the #ministryofcrab which is is set in the 400 year old Dutch Hospital in #colombo before flying back home.
Ranked no. 35 in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants this establishment is a must visit if you are crustacean lover. The crabs are marinated and prepared with locally sourced spices best enjoyed whilst eating with your hands. As per Article V of their Constitution - eating with your hands is not frowned upon 😜
If you plan to enjoy dinner, make sure you book in advance as most nights it is sold out.
It is pricey, but worth every rupee.
There are plans for them to open an establishment in #AbuDhabi soon, and I am hoping it is every bit as good as the one in Colombo
