Tag: Food Around The World

Thanks shooi for the tag πŸ˜‰ This is my 2nd tag. Hehe Really excited and its about my favorite topic, FOOD! One of my favorite food is Chilli Crab.

[singlepic id=702 w=320 h=240 float=center]
Chili crab is a famous seafood dish served in Singapore. It is made with hard-shell crabs, and cooked in a thick gravy with a tomato chili base.

Favorite part of the crab would be the crab pincers cause’ it got a lot of meat. This is one of the few dishes which I don’t mind a ‘hands-on’ on my food. πŸ™‚ Alexandra Village Food Centre #01-07/08/09 Rong Guang BBQ Seafood Stall serve a different type of chilli crab. (Sorry, I didn’t took any pictures that time) Its gravy is of Tom Yam flavor, which is different from the normal Ketchup Chilli gravy. Went there once during my 2nd pregnancy, got a craving for crabs and had managed to persuade hubby to eat crab that time (old wives’ tale: eating crab during pregnancy, baby’s hands & legs would be extra ‘crabby’)

Both of us loved the crabs there after our first time there. Though the gravy is not the usual, there’s really a lot of meat in the crab. Not only was there a lot of meat. It’s so fresh that we could just pull the meat out so easily as though we are sucking with a straw. No kidding! πŸ™‚ And it’s the first time I ate such fresh and juicy crab!

So, if you happen to be shopping nearby, probably you could go there for dinner and try their chilli (or Tom Yam) crab. oohh, I am thinking of the juicy crab already….
