Top on your list of things to do in Singapore would be to dine on crab. Let us show you how to enjoy this crustacean delight the local way, so you can stop casting sidelong looks at the next table and get the most out of this delicious experience!
Most restaurants in Singapore use Sri Lankan mud crab, but always check with the waiter to be sure, as some of them also serve Alaskan king crabs, which are much larger in size and will cost a lot more!
The varieties and sizes of crab, of course, would depend on the number of people you’re dining with. When in doubt, start with a small order and add on if you feel like having more.
What’s Your Flava?
Chilli Crab: One of our key national dishes. You haven’t been to Singapore until you’ve tried it! The crab is stir-fried in a sweet and savoury sauce based in chilli, tomato and egg. It’s not as spicy as its name suggests, but you can certainly ask for less chilli if you’re worried about singeing your taste buds. Last but not least, don’t forget the mantous! These Chinese buns are deep fried until they’re crispy and golden brown on the outside, and fluffy and tender on the inside. They’re delicious when used to soak up the chili crab sauce.
Love the food that this sunny island has to offer? Then you’ll definitely enjoy these three hawker food-inspired cocktails! From kaya toast to laksa, these creative flavours are as Singaporean as they come. Have a taste of them on your visit here, but remember to always drink responsibly!
Here in Singapore, we’re not only particular about the food we eat; the takeaway, or ta-pow packaging matters too. If you think we’re exaggerating, just try asking for your nasi lemak to be packed into a plastic container!
