Sea salt-baked hairy crab in golden pillow
盐焗面包大闸蟹 (S$68++)

We saved the best dish for last. We totally loved this dish, and how cute it looked. The sea salt helps to bring out the freshness and sweetness of the crab and the entire hairy crab is encased in an adorable crab-shaped handcrafted bread crust. Dip the bread in the specially prepared mayonnaise and you may neglect the crab totally. But once you get the first taste of the crab prepared with creamy low fat butter and freshly concocted chicken consommé, every drop of calories is worth it.

There you go. Our favourite 3 dish from Peony Jade’s latest hairy crab offering. More pictures of other dishes here.
