A dish as good as this braised claypot crab with superior broth and pumpkin deserved an entry of its own.  This has to be one of the best and memorable crab dish that I had.  The Boxing Crab is the original creator of this dish which is both tasty and devilish.

For friends that knows me well, I am not exactly a crab lover.  My fetish for crab is really about mopping out the sauce or gravy of the dish.  That’s why I am never a fan of black pepper or salted egg yolk crabs.  My love is for chilli crab, butter crab, or cheese crabs… the more gravy the better it is.

This pumkin crab meets exactly my standards.  The crab is basically swimming in the thick, yet smooth broth.  There is no kidding about it being a superior broth because it is slow cooked for 7 hours before being presented to the diner.  The broth taste peppery and slightly spicy.  Because the chef used some curry leave to lift the flavour, hence this pumpkin broth has a tinge of curry flavour.   Best goes with the deep fried buns that comes together with the crab, it is also good with rice, noodles, or anything at all.  Maybe I suggest other similar dishes (Prawns? Chicken?) with this superior broth and pumpkin.


For a limited period only in the month of May, The Boxing Crab is offering a 1-for-1 crab promotion.  So take the opportunity to impress your mother this coming Mother’s Day of your good choice and savour this superior crab dish.
