SINGAPORE + MY FIRST EPIC PEPPER CRAB EXPERIENCE

Black pepper crab and chili crab are two of Singapore’s most iconic dishes, and while you can certainly buy crab at any cheap food hawker stall, we did it the super swanky way, at the waterfront Palm Beach Seafood Restaurant. We showed up without a reservation (mistake) but promised to be fast and were seated anyway and feasted like kings for less than an hour. The pepper crab was clearly the highlight of the evening — overzealous crab cracking resulted in stray shells shooting across our table like bullets and narrowly missing the back of a lady’s head at an adjacent table, oops — but I also loved the salt-crusted whole fish, fried seafood noodles, and buttery wilted greens. I did NOT care for the strange, sweet baby squid, which were crunchy and insect-like.
