Get your crackers, hammers and bibs at the ready – there's a crustacean festival coming to Sydney

For some, there are few pleasures greater than sucking sweet crab flesh straight from the shell and wiping their fingers and mouth on a placcy bib. If this is you, you’ll be chuffed to hear The Morrison is bringing back nearly a month of shellfish shenanigans for their annual crab carnival. We're talking crab menus, crab cocktails and crab races. It's a crustacean-filled carnival.

Every Thursday there will be a Louisiana crab broil and hermit crab racing, so you can watch your dinner’s cousins battle it out in the arena while you’re eating. And, every day during the carnival the menu will be laden with delicious crabby dishes from chef and culinary director Sean Connoll. Think rich, steamy king crab mac ’n’ cheese, crunchy po' boys and creamy crab knuckle pies. But the shareable star of the menu is the bulging platter of black bean and coriander enhanced fried Typhoon Shelter muddy with chilli jam dipping sauce. Get cracking.
