Yesterday we had our first taste of Singapore chilli crab. I think the way in which we ate it would annoy so many people. Even the staff offered to give us lessons at one point.
The “ordeal” was recorded but I won’t have access to the video for about 5 to 8 months. Which means I can’t watch it and cringe, not yet.
The crab itself was beautifully cooked. We were at Jumbo Seafood in Clarke Quay. The sauce was made well and not too spicy hot. I just don’t think I am a huge fan of the taste of crab.
We enjoyed the experience and afterwards, the staff said they prefer the pepper crab, which is a bit hotter in spice. I have had that sauce before, not with crab but other dishes and I also don’t really like that flavour. Even if I did, I don’t think I would be the biggest fan of the dish because it would still be crab.
Yesterday was an amazing end to a 4 day weekend spent with people we have never met before but we now know so much about. They are talented, inspiring, dedicated, generous and just generally all-round amazing people. I hope one day to see them again!
