Chilli Crab

35 Reviews

It has been many years since I have visited ban leong wah hoe for zi char and the exteriors of the shop still looks the same! Ordered their signature dishes: the prawn paste chicken and hot plate beancurd. The fried chicken was well fried and not overly oily whereas the beancurd has a spicy aftertaste in the hotplate gravy that resembles a very mild chilli crab sauce that requires more sweetness and savoury flavours to enhance the dish.

Run by second-generation restaurateurs, this Upper Thomson locale has built a name for its Chilli Crab ($60/kg). The crabs are slicked in a rich gravy, which you’ll want to mop up with deep-fried mantou. Expect an average 30-minute queue time β€” come with patient, crab-loving friends.

Come here to bring my guest from overseas as they want to try chili crab. Went with 1.5 kg, fat crab but i prefer gravy with more kick. The gravy is towards tomato-ish kind, i prefer if its a little more spicy. Ordered bday mee sua, kailan, venison, clams, chicken wings. Spent $200 for 6 and we are really full to the brim.

If you eat crabs or love eating crabs you probably would have heard of the Chilli crab challenge held for 1 month back in May/June. The challenge may be over but the restaurant is still serving your usual Tze Char Fare! πŸ€—πŸ˜‹ Think... πŸ’­ Chilli Crab, Black Pepper Crab, Lala, Oysters etc!
--
What's more, the restaurant is also giving out FREE 😱 Birthday Mee Sua for a limited time period!! Head over to www.chillicrabchallenge.com/home and click 'click for free food' !!🍜

πŸ™ Thank you @chillicrabchallenge for hosting us and @smittenteam for the invitation! 😸

We were famished and ended up ordering a lot. 8 dishes (large servings) for 9 adults, and we finished all the food! Go early for dinner before the queue gets long! Total damage: $17/pax including drinks

Many other customers ordered their chili crabs with Mantou - looks yummy!

Dishes ordered: signature lala, prawn paste chicken, sambal kangkong, sliced fish with ginger & onion, fu yong omelette, sweet & sour pork, hot plate beancurd with seafood, deep fried squid

Having tried both flavours, my heart is leaned towards the latter which had a greater kick with a strong peppery flavour that contributed to a lingering shiok spiciness. The crab meats were also fresh, soft and delicate - worth getting your hands dirty for and the patience in peeling them off the hard rigid shells! πŸ’–
Thanks @chillicrabchallenge for the warm hospitality and making my dining experience a pleasant and fulfilling one! πŸ˜‹Thanks to @smittenteam for extending the invitation too! πŸ’• .
