Scrumptious Singapore: Chili Crab and Friends

September 20, 2010 By: Serena Category: Singaporean

Since most of you expressed interest in the yummy chili crab pictured in my teaser post, I’m starting our food journey through Singapore here!   While the chili crab is by far the most renowned of the Singapore crab dishes, I had the opportunity to sample some other varieties.  Dare I say – my favorite crab dish in Singapore was not of the chili variety??
