Singapore Food – ieat Crab Fest at Chin Huat Live Seafood

My hubby and I spent our last weekend in the neighboring country, Singapore. Our main objective of this trip was purely to meet up with our friends, having fun hunting for interesting Singapore food and joining in the ieat Crab Fest organized by Leslie of ieatishootipost!

2 )  Black Pepper Dungeness Crab
3 )  Butter Blue Swimmer Crab
4 )  Red Flower Crab Porridge
5 )  Chili Sri Lanka Crab
6 )  Stir Fried Cromer Crab in Superior Broth served in pan fried Bee Hoon
7 )  Salted Egg Indonesia Crab
8 )  Golden Sauce Indonesia Crab
9 )  Chilled Kailan with Wasabi soya sauce

Alaskan King Crab steamed in Chinese wine – The Alaskan King Crab is a very large crab and was served in pieces steamed with Chinese wine and egg white. The long legs with plenty of meat is the best part and is easily removed with the pair of scissors.

The meat was extremely sweet and fragrant with the wine! This dish was agreed by most as the best dish for its texture and taste. This is one dish that I would love coming back for.

The Golden Sauce Indonesia Crab dish was also another crowd favorite of the night as many of us went for its excellent sauce which incorporates the pumpkin. It was creamy and combined very well with the crab. That special taste had us craving for more, especially when eaten with the fried Mantou. This is a must try dish when you visit Chin Huat!

We were glad that we took part in this makan-makan session. We got to know many new friends while indulging in the many types of crabs.

Besides the above mentioned two dishes, there are plenty more dishes which we enjoyed that evening, and you can catch it in the slide show below!


Last but not least, the crab fest ended on a successful note with a very beautiful dessert. This four-type dessert was a great surprise for all of us as it was not stated in the menu.
