Chilli Soft Shell Crab Burger

$15.00 · 3 Reviews

Wok in burger is within the same coffeeshop as its parent KEK outlet. Not a stranger to burger with local flavours, KEK has been selling them at their former West Coast outlet. Their coffee pork ribs burger and salted egg yolk sotong burger were excellent!

Tried their chilli soft shell crab burger in the newly rebranded stall. I wished there could have been more chilli crab gravy. The portion that could do more improvement are the shredded cucumber and lettuce, which had an bitter aftertaste. Neverthess, the buttery toasted buns were done quite well and I was impressed with the size of the soft shell crab given.

Keng Eng Kee takes on zi char-inspired burgers at this new hawker stall in Bukit Merah. For a fun, fusion dinner, share the generously portioned Chilli Soft Shell Crab Burger ($15) — crispy soft shell crab slathered in sweet, spicy chilli crab sauce, sandwiched between buns. Expect the same wok hei goodness, packed into one big burger bite.

It is introduced with the novel idea of incorporating local zhi char dishes into Western style burgers.

Say “Hello” to Chilli Soft Shell Crab Burger, Salted Egg Pork Burger, Coffee Pork Burger, Pai Gu Wan Burger and the likes.

Am not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but it came exactly how one would expect it to be like – deep fried soft shell crab drizzled with sweet, slightly spicy chilli crab sauce and sandwiched between burger buns.
