For dinner I finally got to eat Singapore’s signature dish: Chili Crab.

Following a lot of research, I had made a booking at Momma Kong’s, a place with a bunch of very good reviews and a bit of a fan fellowship it appears. They even called me back to confirm the reservation and make it clear that we have our table only for 2 hours!

The food we got was ample and very tasty! They have a special set offer for 2: one veggie dish (something I never even heard of, Dau Miao (?), one small platter (Fried Calamari) and then 2 crab dishes: 1 crab behoon soup (no MSG, so they promise) and 1 red chili crab. The carb is mantou, which is a fluffy rice roll, comes in steamed and fried. So delectable!

While eating crab, getting the meat out (especially when my co-eater was quickly overwhelmed by the task and left it then all to papa), trying to take pictures on the side and on top of it EAT! That’s a lot of work! A fight against the food cooling down …

The whole adventure threw us back pretty exactly 100US$ … well, our lunch was a mere 6US$ … and it was our last dinner, and the only ‘fancy’ one … Well worth it!
