Shangri-la’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa is out with a pretty awesome deal. Every Friday from 6.30pm to 9pm, Crabs Ah! will open by the waterfront and diners will be treated to a 4 course spread with free flow beer and house wine. Inclusive in this 4 course set is a choice of crab done in either Chilli, Black Pepper, Salted Egg Yolk or Steamed with Special Sauce. The best part? Dinner will be served by the sea side and if you are early enough, you will be able to witness a gentle change in colour as the sun sets slowly over the horizon.
A charming view by the seaside
Crabs Ah! open yet intimate dining concept!
Start off the meal with a bowl of Deep-Fried White Bait. Crispy, and fresh with a good amount of minced garlic to enliven the senses, these go exceptionally well with some of that free-flow Tiger draught beer. It is really addictive, and opens up the appetite for the main course to come.
Crabs are prepared in 1 out of 4 ways for this set menu. First-timers to Singapore will relish in the choice of Chilli Crab. Slightly spicy with a good dose of sweet sourness in the tomato chilli base, these crabs were good and worth the wait.
Golden Fried Mantou Buns served with every crab dish.
Black Pepper Crab. Slightly spicy, peppery with a good dose of sweetness that permeates the meat.
Crab Steamed with Special Sauce. Interesting base with a sweet saltish demeanour that resembles the soya sauce used in Cantonese steamed fish.
The Salted Egg Yolk Crab was my favourite for the night. Sweet and salty with just a touch of spice, with a satisfying texture that will make you want to lick your fingers.
As diners tuck in to a serving of crab, enjoy a platter of fried rice. Lightly fried with egg and a garnish of fragrant vegetables, this was pretty good as a staple.
The best part (and probably the highlight) of the entire promotion is the free flow beers and wine. A great way to complement the entire meal. And if you are keen, book a room at Shangri-la to spend the night after the sumptuous meal.
To end off the entire set meal, choose between the Teh Tarik and Pandan ice cream specially prepared for Shangri-la this promotional season. I particularly enjoyed the Pandan variant for its fragrant presence and creamy texture. The Teh Tarik choice was good but the pandan was better.
Shangri-la’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa Crabs Ah! promotion is an excellent choice if you have two to dine and looking for a great evening’s out near the seaside. The 4 course set meal of crab, fried rice, appetizer and dessert, is sweetened with the choice of free flow beer and wine. The crab flavours are decent, with each variant being enticing if you are keen for one out of four favourite flavours. A great way to experience a taste of Singapore (or are in the mood for beer and wine plus crab by the seaside).
