This is Chef Dylan Ong's interpretation of a Kueh Pie Tee snack.
.
A beetroot infused pastry shell 'basket', crisp with vegetal sweet notes, is filled with fresh deshelled snow crab meat, succulent and clean-tasting with bright sweet savoury flavour.

Dressed with a sticky lime gel, a creamy avocado mousse, and edible flower petals, the one-bite morsel bursts with floral vegetal earthy sour zesty sweet savoury salty spice flavours.

Luxurious and bold in taste, a personal favourite. Although, I wish the strong dressing could be toned down a tad to allow more of the natural snow crab flavour to shine.

The waffles were excellent, served warm, crisp outside, fluffy inside, with an enticing bready sweet smoky flavour.
.
The 2 large scoops of ice cream are creamy and rich, I preferred the chocolate ice cream with its deep chocolatey bitter sweet flavour, over the earl grey ice cream with its light floral earthy sweet milky flavour.
.
Decorated with a mint leaf, and crunchy biscuit crumble for contrast of texture.
