Crab dishes are very popular in Singapore especially when you can find it in almost every Zi Char store. One of the most sought-after food items has to be the Salted Egg Yolk Crab! The hype of Salted Egg may have dipped with the rise of Mala but it is definitely a dish that you will regret not trying!
The richness from the salted egg paired with the sweetness from the flesh of the crab. Once you start, it’s hard to stop, the shiok-tisfaction only gets bigger… and BIGGER!
Endulge in this plate of savoury and buttery goodness with your family this Chinese New Year!
Ps: Crabs have to be prepared and then cooked immediately, if you leave it out for too long, it releases an unpleasant ammonia stench!
