Endless Crabs Party Buffet Dinner @ Spice Brasserie

Calling all crab fanatics! Don’t miss the chance to indulge in Spice Brassiere’s Endless Crab Party Buffet Dinner, where diners can immerse themselves in a melange of crab selections at a wallet-friendly prices.

The crab buffet has been well-received for many years, but this does not stop Executive Chef Low Hoe Kiat from upping the ante. Diners can look forward to 8 new tantalising creations, in addition to the 4 endearing classics.

My personal favourite is the Wok Fried Crab in Wu Jia Pi Wine. Succulent crustacean is flambeed with Wu Jia Pi wine over a dancing flame, alongside with Dang Gui, Wolfberries, fragrance with coriander and ginger. The result is a burst of irresistible flavour in each mouthful. So thankful towards Chef Low for sharing the joys of his family recipe!

Salted Egg is a common flavour that can be spotted at many restaurants and Zi Char stalls. However, not all salted egg sauces are equal. Chef Low’s Salted Egg Crab hit all the right spots with his rich and creamy sauce, enhanced with curry leaves and chilli padi for an uplifting kick. Finger-licking good!

Tastes of Thailand @ Mandarin Oriental

Luxury hotel Mandarin Oriental’s Melt Café takes you on a journey to the Land Of Smiles to feast on a distinguished cuisine rich in aroma and flavors.

Upon entering Melt Café, I was immediately drawn to the Som Tam Hut Live Station. The quintessential Thai Papaya Salad looks deceivingly plain, however, your taste buds will reveal in the abundance of flavor. The tantalizing medley of hot and sour dressing, crushed peanuts, dried shrimp, chili padi and fish sauce makes for an appetizing and fiery start!

Apart from the Som Tam, other salad options include Spicy Calamari with Cucumber & Tomato and Spicy Prawn Salad seasoned with shallots, lemongrass and coriander. For those who like bursts of natural sweetness and tanginess, don’t forget grab a scoop of the Pomelo Salad.
