Filipino Chili Crab

panlasangpinoy's picture
Chili Crab is a seafood dish that originated from Singapore. This dish is composed of crab (Mud Crab is originally used) cooked in sweet and spicy sauce. I had my first taste of this dish in the original dampa in Paranaque (a city in the Philippines). I found this to be real good and the three servings of rice can attest to that. Imagine the meaty claws of the alimango topped with sweet and spicy sauce €¦now that makes me really craving for more. Wouldn€™t you want to try some or perhaps cook your own chili crab? If your answer is yes, then we have the solution right here.
