CHILLED SNOW CRAB CLAW
Heading straight for the snow crab claw on ice would be a fantastic way to kick-start your feast at Spice Brasserie.
Snow Crabs come with a hefty price tag but here, you can enjoy endless servings of fresh snow crab claws. We don’t know about you, but we definitely wouldn’t give this a miss even though it isn’t a hot main on its own!
ALL-TIME FAVOURITE CRABS
Get ready to get your hands dirty with a crab party!
The Salted Egg Crab is a definite crowd pleaser and one that we always go for second helpings when at Spice Brasserie. It is that consistently good. Other local favourites such as Chilli Crab are also part of the Gifts of the Sea buffet lineup.
SALTED EGG CRAB
The Salted Egg Yolk Crab was nicely doused in a rich and luscious salted egg yolk sauce that had every reason for us to lick our fingers even after we were done wiping up the succulent crab meat.
Salted egg yolk dishes are commonly found but good ones are hard to come by—we are indeed pleased to say that Spice Brasserie’s salted egg yolk crab is one that will not disappoint.
BLACK PEPPER CRAB
All hail the Singapore favourite—Black Pepper Crab. The black pepper sauce that the crab is drenched in boasts a harmonious blend of flavours—what you can expect is a subtle sweetness followed by a fiery kick of spice.
Delicious as it is, the black pepper crab does pack a potent punch of piquancy so you may wish to stick to the other equally tasty options if you aren’t one who handle spiciness well!
AUTHENTIC SINGAPORE CHILI CRAB
Chili Crab may be a dish that all Singaporeans are familiar with but the one at Spice Brasserie is one you still have to try.
The luscious chilli crab sauce is full-flavoured and we particularly love how Executive Chef Chuah didn’t go easy on the spice, ensuring the most authentic taste and nothing less.
Besides plenty of crab dishes, Spice Brasserie boasts a multitude of other seafood-centric dishes that you can look forward to.
BAKED HOKKAIDO OYSTER
The baked Hokkaido oyster is sure to please all fans of oysters—imagine slurping down creamy oysters that are flame-grilled with Hollandaise sauce.
Many may think that this is a heavy item that you’d get sick of after just one or two pieces, but the light Hollandaise sauce complemented the oysters perfectly such that the harmony of flavours left us in awe and had us reaching for a second serving.
HOMEMADE LOBSTER BAO
The chefs at Spice Brasserie has once again surprised us with their creativity by going all out to make their dishes as interesting as possible. Giving lobsters a unique and modern twist is the Homemade Lobster Bao.
Expect a generous portion of diced lobster meat mixed with swiss mushrooms and chives, enveloped within a crispy, golden-brown popiah skin. The end result? A myriad of textures present in a single dish so amazing you would regret not stuffing yourself silly with this.
STEAMED BAMBOO CLAM WITH MINCED GARLIC CHILI LIME
For a main that will go easy on your palates, opt for the steamed bamboo clam with minced garlic chilli lime.
Delicate, silky smooth and extremely succulent, the minced garlic chilli lime that sits on top of each bamboo clam gives an extra dimension of flavours in addition to the natural sweetness that the steamed bamboo clam carries.
WOK BRAISED LIVE DRUNKEN KING PRAWNS
Diners can look forward to the live stations at Spice Brasserie where freshwater prawns are caught right before being cooked, assuring that you get only the freshest catch and nothing less.
The Wok Braised Live Drunken King Prawns will impress even the most discerning of taste buds—the intense richness of the Hua Diao wine that is used for the stock boasts an unparalleled fragrance with a subtle alcohol aftertaste.
WOK BRAISED LIVE SAN HAR KING PRAWNS NOODLE
Should you be looking for something more comforting yet indulgent, hop over to the live station where a chef will whip up a fragrant serving of Wok Braised Har King Prawns Noodle in front of you.
Featuring fresh, plump prawns amidst silky smooth noodles in a bowl of rich herbal soup that is subtly sweet, this dish was a unanimous favourite. It felt like we returned home to a bowl of comforting noodles after a long day of work.
NYONYA BAKED WHOLE MACKEREL FILLET
Cooked and served whole, the Nyonya Mackerel Fillet is fresh and nothing short of flavourful. The mackerel fillet remains delicately moist despite being baked whole and we love how it is lavishly doused in Assam chilli.
The Gifts of the Sea buffet dinner is available from now until 30 September 2018 through Thursdays to Sundays. Quote ‘ladyironchef’ to enjoy Spice Brasserie’s Gift of The Sea Buffet at S$108++ for 2 pax (U.P. S$65/ adult, S$32.50/ child) – valid until 31 August 2018.
