As the seasons change between Summer and Autumn, we leave the heat and humidty behind and welcome the cooler fall breeze. This heralds the arrival of the prime season for indulging in crab delicacies. The culinary team at The Food Gallery debuts a two-month long crab promotion with different daily crab specials.
Searching for the freshest seasonal crustaceans from around the globe and pairing them with iconic recipes from Maryland to Thailand and Singapore to Macau, recently appointed Culinary Director Michael Donlevy states, “This is the best time of the year to indulge in crabs as they mature and are at their peak. Female crabs are abundant with creamy roe and the male crabs have firm sweet flesh. My team and I have done a deep dive, searching for the best recipes to showcase the sweet delicate flesh of the decapods. In lieu of being able to travel to various cities and countries to tuck into these signature dishes, we’ve brought them all here, to The Food Gallery, for our guests to enjoy.”
Embark on the epicurean journey a refreshing Crab and Mango Custard then on to a warm Maryland Crab Bisque or Roasted Crab and Corn Soup.
On the signature ‘made-to-order’ menu, guests can look forward to popular savoury dishes such as Singapore Chilli Crabs, Wok-Fried Black Pepper Crabs, Macanese Crab Congee and Stir-Fried Crabs with Black Bean and Garlic Sauce as well as the chef’s recommendation of Claypot Crab Vermicelli with Ginger and Scallions, and Creamy Pumpkin Crab Curry.
The crustaceans also make their appearance in the live cooking stations as Baked Canadian Snow Crab Leg with Truffle Sabayon and Thai-styled Crabmeat Cakes. For more familiar flavours of home, there are the Dungeness Crab and Scallop Fried Rice, Steamed Dungeness Crab with Egg White and Hua Diao Rice Wine or Crab and Lobster E-fu noodles in Superior Broth.
