Singapore Chilli Crab | 辣椒螃蟹 | National Favorite


Singapore Chilli Crab. No surprise why this is featured as the national dish of Singapore.The hugely popular dish is not very difficult to prepare at home and the sauce blend can be adjusted to suit your tastes and desired spice level. Despite the name, this is not an overly spicy dish. The long fresh red chillies that go into the spice paste are only mildly hot.

The limited local resources in Singapore for the ever growing demand, means that the Crabs are mainly sourced from Srilanka and India for the past decade. There are many more Crab dishes, made popular in the recent times like Black Pepper Crab, White Pepper Crab, Curry Crab and Salted Egg Crab. The Chilli Crab, however continues to reign supreme!

If you have ever visited Singapore, you might like to try this Dish that your are bound to have tasted and loved. And if you are planning on visiting Singapore, put this on your to do list! Much loved by sea food lovers, the world over.
