This seafood dish is one of the most popular in Singapore. Mud crabs are used. The sauce is a savoury tomato and chili-based semi-thick sauce. It is not a spicy dish so don’t be fooled by its name. The other competing version is the Black Pepper Crab. Chilli crab is one of the most satisfying dishes to eat with crusty bread or steamed buns. People also eat it with steamed white rice. Do get ready some crab crackers and wet napkins.
