If you are craving for a scrumptious crab meal without wanting to pay for expensive seasonal prices, then the new Kenny’s Krabbi down at The Venue Shoppes is the place you must visit. It specialises in a wide variety of zi char favourites and crab dishes such as crab porridge, crab bee hoon and Singapore chilli crab.
Helmed by Kenny Ng, this is the chef-owner’s second venture into the F&B industry after several years of experience as a banquet sous chef at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore.
This restaurant is all that you need to satisfy your crab cravings and what’s more, all their prices for crabs are fixed regardless of the season!
Lovers of crab bee hoon will surely seek comfort in their Rich Broth Crab Bee Hoon 600g Crab (Half – S$20, Whole – S$38). The crab pieces are first tossed around in a fragrant broth so as to further intensify it and the noodles are added in during the last few seconds so it retains a nice chew.
For S$20, what you get is a huge bowl of noodles and crabs that will easily feed two people which is a pretty good deal considering that the same dish elsewhere would cost you much more.
For solo diners, one option we would highly recommend is the Deep-Fried Fish Head Soup (S$6.90). The combination of sweet and savoury tones is a result of boiling the broth for over six hours so diners can expect nothing less but rich, intense fish stock.
The fish head pieces were deep-fried to a glorious shade of golden brown and there was a fantastic texture contrast between the crispy fish and smooth thick noodles.
A good accompaniment to your meal is the Hong Kong Kai Lan with Garlic Oyster Sauce (S$4.90). Stir-fried in the open kitchen upon order, ours had a nice smooth glossy sheen from the oyster sauce that was lathered on top of the crunchy vegetables.
Beyond what we have tried, Kenny’s Krabbi also have other seafood alternatives such as Rich Broth Crab Porridge 800g Crab (Half – S$32, Whole – S$60), Singapore Chilli Crab (600g – S$46, 800g – S$68) and Red Garoupa Sliced Soup (S$13).
