We came, we ate and probably depleted the ocean of 1 tonne of crabs. Well, at least a few hundred kilos.
Many thanks to all our readers who turned up for Crab Fest 2 last Friday! It was a blast as we had over 200 crabbers fulfilling their annual crab quota. I am sure no one left with a crustacean deficit!
The Crabs were all amazing, but the one that still stood out for me was the Alaskan King Crab steamed with egg white which really highlighted the natural sweetness of the crab. ($148 per kg). Coming in a close second is the Boston Maine Lobster in superior stock. ($98 per kg). The Man Tou with the Golden Sauce Crabs is still my pick for most addictive sauce!
It’s been another great year for the blog! My book “The End of Char Kway Teow” won 3rd place at the Popular Reader’s Choice awards and we managed to release the ieat hawker iphone app! We also managed to hit our target of raising $100K for Goducate to build Schools in Sandkan! Praise God for His bountiful blessings!
All these things would not have happen without the support of our kakis and readers of the blog, so I would like to thank all of you for your support! Special thanks also to Soundman, Holydrummer, Mark and Cactuskit for helping with Crab Fest 2!
For those who missed out on Crab Fest, I had tried to get Chin Huat to offer our readers the same menu but it is not possible due to seasonality of the crabs. However, they will offer a special discount for our readers for Boston Maine Lobster ($68 instead of $98) and Dungeness Crabs ($48 instead of $58). Just make your reservation and mention Crab Fest. Call Amy 67787198, 67757348 to book. Offer valid till 21 January.
