Signature Chilli Crab Pasta

$16.00 · 15 Reviews

December is a month of joy & giving. I have recently visited @crossingscafe with a few foodies, and personally what has impressed me was the cozy environment & friendly staff. Although it was raining on a Sunday afternoon, what I could felt was the love and passion from the food prepared and served.

Crossings Cafe is a social enterprise which creates employment opportunities for the disadvantaged such as collaborating with students and graduates from Assumption Pathway School to intern or work at the cafe.
The cafe serves yummy comfort food at affordable prices and the profits go to charity.

Personally, I have enjoyed the Franciscan Burger ($19), the hand moulded beef patty is succulent, it is made from Friar John-Paul Tan OFM’s secret receipe and the burger is topped with lettuce, sliced tomatoes and smoked cheddar cheese.

The signature black pepper chilli crab fettucine is also an interesting dish that one should try when visiting the cafe. The spicy level is just nice for me and the mixture of black pepper and chilli crab is an interesting combination!

Do check out the cafe and enjoy a meal with your loved ones!
Thank you @crossingscafe for the invitation and the warm hosting!

It's mission is to provide employment opportunities, personal development and dignity for the disadvantaged so that they can have more paths in society. Crossings is currently collaborating with Assumption Pathway School, a Catholic vocational institute, to take on interns and graduates from the school to work at the café as servers, cooks and baristas.

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 👍
