The look of this dish made me curious. I even stood up to get a closer look of this. This dish is called the Typhoon Shelter Crab! Originating from Hong Kong, this dish is commonly cooked by fishermen who can't sail the seas because of the stormy weather. The ingredients put are what fishermen have in their surrounding since they cannot go elsewhere. As to taste, this one is another delicious treat! The crumbs equal the superb taste of the crab meat. For Pinoys, I think this will be perfectly served with beer! :)

Lastly, I tried the Chang Boun Thai Curry Crab. For those who are so in to curry flavors, this Thai's version is something you should try out as well.

Crustacia's Executive Chef Peter Ayson shared with us that they carefully selected these crab dishes from different Asian countries. In fact, his culinary team is composed of chefs and cooks of different nationalities but of the same talent and love in preparing crab dishes. I even remarked, "Oh, so you're just like The Kitchen Musical!". And Peter laughed but agreed to what I said. :) I just could imagine the fun and pressure inside the kitchen with them around. But the good thing is, their combination brings out the best Asian crab dishes in town!
