Signature Chilli Crab Pasta

Taste was good n portion just nice. Recommended!

1-for-1 with #burpplebeyond!

Being a social enterprise and providing job opportunities for disadvantaged youths were the reasons why I wanted to check Crossings Cafe our. Additionally, being on Burpple Beyond was a bonus!

Apart from the plating with greens that made the pasta look appealing and healthy, the taste was pretty decent too. Tossed in Crossings’ own chilli crab claw meat sauce which was made of a tangy tomato base with bits of actual crab meat, the fettuccine was cooked till al dente and was nicely coated with the chilli crab sauce. The sauce was also slightly alliaceous with ingredients such as onion and garlic. Served atop was fried garlic bits and a whole fried soft shell crab with light crispy batter that was juicy but not overly greasy.


This social enterprise cum cafe serves up Western fare that is both delicious and for a good cause –– all proceeds go to charity. Opt for the flavourful Crossings Signature Chilli Crab Pasta ($17), which comes with a whole soft shell crab atop fettucine. On weekends, the fluffy Pancake Stack ($12) is perfect for a catch-up brunch.

The babyback ribs tasted good if a little dry and tough. Serving portions were huge with an extremely generous serving of salad and sweet potato fries. The chili crab pasta was great, according to my mum.

Saw this on Burpple Beyond and decided to come here, but only realise this is a social enterprise when we arrive! A decent meal, soft shell crab only, tasty garlicky ketchup as chili sauce. Please skip the vongole as it’s quite bland. Just that perhaps it’s all in the mind; a little more patience is required here ◡̈ and probably I shouldn’t have scheduled another appointment after this...


Considering Crossings Cafe is a social enterprise and more intended for families and casual food than anything gourmet, I thought this chilli crab pasta was really decent. I prefer creamier, thick renditions of chilli crab sauce, but this pasta had a rather thin/non-creamy sauce. However I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of flavour in the chilli crab sauce, it was really flavourful and fragrant. the whole soft shell crab atop the pasta was pretty good too. for $20 (including service charge) for 2 mains with burpple beyond’s 1 for 1, I’d say it’s a good and cheap casual meal. All proceeds go to charity!


Chilli crab pasta could have been spicier, it was more tomato-based than chilli 😬 Note: their profits goes towards charity 👍

Tagliatelle pasta tossed in chilli crab sauce with a hint of tomatoes sweetness albeit the piquant chilli crab sauce. Though it was a soft shell crab pasta, traces of real crabmeat can be seen in between the pasta which I thought was a pleasant surprise. Not only give you the oomph but makes you think it's penny worthy! But the soft shell crab was a little on the salty side, which constantly remind you to have it with your pasta. Portion was pretty generous to begin with too and location was rather conveniently located near Bras Basar.

Located within the same building as Catholic Welfare Centre (Crossings Cafe is on the first floor), this light-filled cafe serves delicious brunch grub alongside local favourites, and all profits are channelled towards charitable and social causes. On weekdays, swing by with your colleagues for lunch and order the Signature Chilli Crab Pasta ($16) — fettucine tossed in a homemade spicy chilli crab sauce, topped with a deep-fried soft shell crab. On weekends, catch up with your girlfriends over brunch fare like the fluffy Pancake Stack ($12) with fresh fruits and drizzled with your choice of maple syrup or gula Melaka, or share the hearty All Day Energy Booster ($18), which comes with two eggs (scrambled or sunny side up), sausages, bacon, mushrooms, toast and hash brown.
