Basically, chilli crab is a seafood dish in which stir-fried crab is coated with sweet, savoury and spicy tomato based sauce. This dish is often accompanied by steam or deep fried buns (also known as mantous). It is such a great companion as the chilli gravy and the bun complement each other perfectly.
What makes this dish so special is its sensuous, sweet yet savoury sauce, created with a base of chilli and tomato sauces which will electrify your palate and satisfy your taste buds.
The tangy sauce is made deliciously fragrant with garlic and rice vinegar, while thickening flour and egg ribbons (produced by adding beaten eggs towards the end of the cooking process) are added to give the chilli crab dish the fluffy texture it is known for.
For extra oomph, order some mantou (toasted buns) to scoop up the thick gravy, which will leave you hankering for more.
Chilli crab is Singapore's most famous dish, a greasy and spicy seafood concoction that simply cannot be enjoyed unless you dive in with your bare hands.
