Well it's only taken us 18 months but we finally tried one of Singapore's signature dishes, Chilli Crab! Went out for dinner last night with some friends to Mellben Seafood in Ang Mo Kio, which apparently is one of the best places to go in Singapore for Chilli Crab. The picture above is actually of the Buttery Crab which came out first, but by the time the Chilli Crab came out, our fingers were too sticky and messy to take more photos. I never knew the crabs were so big and once you get past the messy and fiddly part of de-shelling them, they are everything they are talked up to be - juicy, fresh, succulent and tasty!
We also had the Crab noodles which was one massive crab served in a claypot of noodle soup. Had the cam on the wrong settings for this shot but had to post it to show how big the crab was. This pot served seven of us and we still had some leftover. Can you spot the little eyes?! We also ordered lots of fried bread for dipping and a fried chilli chicken dish. It was all sooooo good (or "damn shiok" as the Singaporeans would say!) and definitely worth the wait (I'm sure people were queuing for more than an hour to get into this place!). Must make reservations next time!
