Incorporating a twist on the traditional White Pepper Crab and elevating this delicacy to new heights is the Braised Sri Lankan Crab in White Pepper Superior Stock. The base of the stock comprising of old fowl, chicken feet, and more are boiled for four to six hours to enable the nutrients of these ingredients to seep through – resulting in a stock that is intensely rich, nutritious and flavourful. Add white pepper as well as the prized hard shelled crustacean, and the taste of this creation is elevated to new heights.
Another refreshing yet familiar and tasty dish is the Deep-fried Sri Lankan Crab with Spiced
Chicken Floss. Chicken floss is a popular local snack that holds a place in the hearts of many
Singaporeans. With this in mind, the Sri Lankan Crab is deep-fried to perfection so that the meat
stays firm and sweet, before it is sheathed with spiced Chicken Floss – tantalising the taste buds
with a harmony of salty and sweet flavours, accompanied with an addictive aroma.
If you can’t get enough of salted egg, satiate your cravings with Deep-fried Sri Lankan Crab with
Salted Egg & Oatmeal. Deep-fried at a very high temperature to give a delightfully crisp exterior
and doused with a generous amount of creamy golden Salted Egg goodness, this crustacean’s firm
meat is the perfect foil for the addictive concoction, along with crispy oatmeal for that satisfying
crunch. For lovers of “Mala”, go for the Braised Sri Lankan Crab in Szechuan Ma La Sauce.
Heralded by bold and unique Szechuan flavours, this bright orange crab boasts fleshy, juicy and
sweet crab meat bathed with an aromatic mix of Szechuan spices, egg and onion, complete with a
satisfying, spicy kick. Like Mala.
