After a successful run last year, the Plaza Brasserie Crab Buffet is back from now till 31 August 2013. That’s about 3 months for you to indulge in this All-You-Can-Eat Crab Buffet.
When I go to a typical coffeeshop zhi char stall to have crabs, it would already cost at least $50 per person to devour some decent crabs.
For Plaza Brasserie’s crab buffet which includes all their usual specialties from sushi, sashimi, deep fried calamari, dim sum, live cooking prata (durian or chocolate prata for that fact) and laksa, the price is $55++ for weekday dinners and $58++ for weekend dinners.
I have been to some crab buffets, but Plaza Brasserie’s selection just gets bigger. 8 different crabs this time – not on rotational basis, you get them all.
Other than the Singaporean favourite Chilli Crab and Black Pepper Crab, you can look forward to savouring new crab recipes – Crab with Tang Gui, Baked Crab, Nonya Curry Crab, Butter Crab, Stirred Fried Crab with Egg Yolk, Salted Egg Crab and XO Crabs.
Some of the new line-up is created by their new Executive Sous Chef Ken Ang.
My beloved crab for the day is easily the Stir-fried Crab with Salted Egg Yolk. While some customers may be picking out their favourite crab parts (pincers or claws) leisurely from the buffet table (faster can?), I was just going for the remnants of the salted egg yolk because there were the tastiest parts, especially when you try to lick the spicy-sweet-salty yolk encapsulating the crab shells.
Tip of the day: Use your hands. You have to get your hands dirty when eating crabs!
The ladies seem to flavour the Steamed Crab with Dang Gui and it is indeed less common to see herbal soupy style of crabs with wolfberries on the buffet table. Many of them go “It’s very ‘bu’” and go on downing the part-medicinal soup which they find very nutritious-tasting.
Eating eight different crabs at one go, digging the meat and sucking all the ‘chup’… sounds pretty crab-citing all right.
