I can’t believe that I cannot ever recall going to East Coast Seafood Centre. Maybe it’s just been so long that it’s changed enough for me to remember anything but it’s brilliant! It was a lovely cool evening in Singapore with a nice seaside breeze (that unfortunately brought along with it a whiff of oil from the recent oil spill) and we ate at Long Beach. I honestly think they are more or less the same nowadays, but we decided on this place simply because it had tables along the seaside.
I love crab so much that I also think ordering other food is redundant, but we ordered garlic prawns, asparagus and kangkong in belachan, beef stir fried with ginger and shallots, fried rice on top of the main events, black pepper crab and chilli crab. We ordered two smaller crabs black pepper style and one crab chilli style and I swear the weight of the two dishes would have been the same – the chilli crab was enormous! I actually like the smaller crabs as I feel the taste of the flesh is sweeter and the shells just easier to get through but the crabs last night were so fresh that both were equally good.
Crab by the seaside with beer. Couldn’t ask for much better than that.
