Jumbo Seafood Restaurant

Chili Crab

These local guys have quite a few locations across the island, and it was quite crowded today. We got all the requisite Singaporean seafood items, be it Chili Crab, Pepper Crab, Cereal Prawns (yes, that's prawns stir fried with breakfast cereal like oat bran, and it actually turns out decently good with the crunchy sweet taste of the cereal). Most of this was respectable (and I liked the sweet sesame flavor in the deep fried baby squid), but this place does rack up the bill for you by charging for every little thing, like tea, peanuts, the little wet towel packets, and the deep fried "mini buns" for dipping into the sauce. I think I still prefer Palm Beach by a slightly better margin, but this place certainly wasn't bad either.

Yeah, I used to like No Signboard's white pepper crab the best, but I've eaten there so much that I'm sick of it now. Hence, I'm having to go to other shops to find the more traditional black pepper crab.
