Undeniably, crab feasting is one of Singapore’s favourite past-time. Chilli crab, black pper crab, butter crab, white pepper crab, crab bee hoon – we love it all. Talking about where to eat crabs in Singapore, Mellben, Uncle Leong, Long Beach, No Signboard, Jumbo, and Palm Beach are some of the favourite places.
Sometimes when I organise crab dinners, the most varieties of crabs we can order is 3 as we have only that much space. For those who want to try crabs of every kind, the good news is Plaza Brasserie (which I previously featured The Seafood Buffet, Dragon Feast and Grandma’s Favourites) is launching an all you can eat Crab Fiesta buffet!
You can choose from a variety of crab dishes, such as appetizers: Dijon Crab Cakes with Coriander Paste, Thai Green Curry Mud Crab in Sichuan Style and Stir-Fried Flower Crabs with Spring Onions and Ginger, Crab in ‘Sharksfin’ soup, Crab Meat Le Mein with Miso Paste and Condiments, and Braised Tang Hoon with Live Crab.
Here are my 3 personal favourite crabs at Plaza Brasserie.
Easily the food bloggers’ favourite, the Stir-fried Crab with Salted Egg Yolk was first to be wiped clean. I first started my crab dining with fork and knife, but gave up when I just had to lick the spicy-sweet-salty yolk coating around the crab shells. High cholesterol (!) I know, but highly addictive as well.
This is Chef Jackson’s personal pride and concocted using a special recipe – The Nonya Curry Crab which is cooked with flower crabs. Great combi I thought. Flower crabs’ meat is usually sweeter and taste ‘cleaner’ than mud crabs, and goes really well with the unique slight-spicy Nonya curry gravy.
The chilli crab, sometimes known as Singapore’s Number 1 dish and listed at Number 35 on World’s 50 most quite delicious foods by CNNGo, is a classic dish enjoyed by families.
Although it is also considered as one of the most common crab fish, I still enjoy the semi-thick, sweet and savoury tomato and chilli based sauce which you can dip the hot piping deep fried mantou into. OR (a personal tip) spread it on the crisp prata found at the buffet spread. Chilli crab and prata? Woohoo!
