Pepper Crab at Eng Seng in Singapore

Jump to last reply

Am back in Singapore, and have several hours to kill before my flight to NYC. Since I missed the famous "Pepper Crab" at Eng Seng decided to make the journey. It was very easy to get there from the airport. I took the MRT to Eunos, you have to change at Tanah Merah direction Joo Koon. At Eunos you take bus #13 or #155 for one stop and you are a block from Eng Seng, which is locatedv at Still Road and Joo Chiat Place.

I had read all the hype about how people line up at 4.30 pm for 5 pm opening, and that they run out very early. I arrived just after 4 pm, It didn't appear as if it had just opened. several tables were occupied. The restaurant is an open air place which used to have other food stalls in it, now only one is open. It is very modest by any standards. As soon as I walked in a very aggressive woman told me "minimum 2 crabs 45 S$" I said I didn't want two, that it was too much food for me, anyway I didn't have enough Singapore money on me. Went to the hospital on the next block and got some more from the ATM.

When I returned I had another discussion with this woman, she told me it was her boss' orders, I asked to speak with him, but there was no need since at that point one medium crab was picked out for me and weighed in at 600 grs. I also ordered something else I had read about, which was deepfried squid paste. It is pureed squid fried as tempura. It would probably be better without the mayonnaise that coated it.

The Pepper Crab is quite peppery by itself but it iserved over a black sauce, that reminded me of Ketjap Manis but blacker. The Crab was good, but I prefer Chili Crab, and at least I can now say that I have eaten at Eng Seng. My total bill with a large beer came to S$36.15
