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 concentrating 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 offer 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 the muddled of milk, wine and Chinese herbs to create the distinct sweet concoction broth. The sweetness could be a little overwhelming and feeling cloying at the end of the meal; however, undeniably it is still a satisfying dish that we truly enjoyed.
The price is very much depending on the weight of the crab and ranged from minimum $25 to $65 for a heaviest Sri Lanka crab.
Don Chilli Crab $25 to $65
The gravy was thick with generous amount of eggs, the crustaceans was fully absorbed the essence of the luscious gravy, however, it can be a perfect salivating gravy if the seasoning can be further fine-tuned to heighten the flavour a level up.
If you are not the crab person, dipping the deep-fried mantou into the sauce to savour the goodness of the gravy could be equally satisfying.
The dipping chili sauce is worth to mention for its top notch quality, the concoction of garlicky, spicy and sourness sauce was just impressive that we will hoping it can be 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, black pepper aroma was pronounced and the gravy was saturated with the essence of the seafood sweetness and robust peppery flavour.
