Don Signature Crab Review
We used to visit the China Square outlets years ago for our favourite Don’s pies and crab bee hoon, both are the creation by Chef Don Lim. Since he relinquished the pie business and started focsuing on the crab business, this is our first visit to his Toa Payoh stall.
Apart from serving one of the Singapore’s best Crab Bee Hoon Soup. Don Signature Crab also offers unique crab dishes like Cheesy Crab, Black Pepper Crab, Chilli Crab and Laksa Crab.
Don Signature Crab Bee Hoon Soup $25 to $65
Don Signature Crab Bee Hoon Soup has a unique flavour in the soup with a mixture of milk, wine and Chinese herbs to create a distinct sweet broth. The sweetness could be a little overwhelming and cloying at the end of the meal, but undeniably it is still a satisfying dish that we truly enjoyed.
The price depends on the weight of the crab and ranged from minimum $25 to $65 for a heaviest Sri Lankan crab.
Don Chilli Crab $25 to $65
The gravy was thick with generous amounts of eggs, the crustacean fully absorbed the essence of the luscious gravy. However, it would be a perfect salivating gravy if the seasoning can be further fine-tuned to heighten the flavour.
If you are not a crab person, dipping the deep-fried mantou into the sauce to savour the goodness of the gravy is also equally satisfying.
The dipping chili sauce is worth mentioning for its top notch quality. The concoction of garlicky, spicy and sour sauce was just impressive that we were hoping that it is offered as an off-the-shelves item at the stall.
Black Pepper Bee Hoon $15 / $20
We ordered the $20 serving that comes with 7 medium size prawns and scallops. The black pepper aroma was pronounced and the gravy was saturated with the essence of the seafood and robust peppery flavour.
We may have missed Don’s pies but Don Signature crabs does provide some solace for our cravings for his culinary skills. There is no doubt about the quality of the dishes and is a place we would highly recommend.
