The Place If you love crabs, Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Beach Road hotel has launched The Ultimate Crab Feast for a 5th year running as part of its buffet line. Available for a limited time from 6 May 2016 to 26 June 2016, we were overwhelmed with what was on offer, in a good way.
The Crabs More than merely your usual Chilli Crab, there are up to eight different styles of crabs for this crab feast. Salted Egg Crab, Cereal Crab, Black Pepper Crab, White Pepper Crab, Crab with Honey Rock Sugar and Singapore Chilli Crab are the perennial favourites. Meet two new signature crab flavours this year – Spanish Crabs and Mediterranean Crabs.
My favourites are the Salted Egg Crab and Black Pepper Crab, both fully enriched with the intended flavours. I was pleasantly surprised by the freshness of the crab and the flavours, which rival that of the seafood specialty restaurants out there.
The Spanish-style Crab and Mediterranean Crab are both cooked in a mix of spices and herbs, which I have never had before. Interestingly, the Spanish crab has a strong tomato base taste.
If you love your prata, you must try the Roti Prata with Crab Masala. The masala sauce is generously filled with crab meat, which gives this local Indian dish a nice twist.
Other than the crabs, the rest of the buffet spread are mainly local delights, seafood and Japanese counter.
Rants Crabs aside, the rest of the buffet spread is relatively average in comparison.
Will I Return Again? You will love the crab feast if you are a serious crab lover, and there are bound to be some favourites amongst the wide variety. Don’t miss this special crab feast if you can eat a ton, literally.
