Cape Town crustacean lovers have flocked to The Deckhouse Crabshack & BBQ since it opened on Kloof Street’s upper reaches in August 2015. Now Capetonians will have a chance to snack on shellfish in a new location. The restaurant has announced they’re branching out with a second restaurant at the V&A Waterfront.
Called The Deckhouse Crab Shack, the new branch will be in the upstairs section of the V&A’s food market, and will cater for sit-down diners and takeaways. (We recommend ordering your shrimp popcorn as a takeaway to eat while riding on the Wheel of Excellence, or while watching the seals flop around on the marina.)
The menu will be a smaller version of the Kloof Street store’s menu, with a focus on seafood. Think shrimp popcorn, crab cake burgers, fish and chips, po’ boy sandwiches, blue swimmer buckets, and wings.
The new location will open on 1 July. Ready the plastic bibs and crab claws crackers!
