Singapore: Chilli and Black Pepper Crab

You can find crabs in many parts of the world. But Chilli Crab and Black Pepper Crab? No where better to find it than in Singapore! According to Wikipedia, the chilli crab was created in 1950 in Palm Beach Seafood Restaurant. Now, I never knew that it originated from there! 9 years later, the black pepper crab was born in Long Beach seafood restaurant.

You may think that KFC's chicken is finger lickin' good. Let me tell you what finger lickin' good is. THESE CRABS ARE FINGER LICKING GOOD.

Well, chilli crab is not really spicy, more of a tomato base. It is a rather thick sauce, with ginger, rice vinegar etc added into it. It is ranked 35th out of the World's 50 most delicious foods. The first picture is a picture of a crab from a restaurant. The subsequent two may not be as appetising- home cooked!

The black pepper crab is with, surprise surprise, black pepper.

An equally good part of the meal is where you mop up the sauce with the deep fried mantou (bun). Look at the mantou seep the sauce up, coupled with the crispy exterior of the mantou.

Some good places to have crab: Basically you can comb the East Coast area. There are lots of places that sell these. But if you want to have the liberty of choosing from a wide number in the same area, you might want to go for a seafood meal after a day of fun at East Coast Park.
