Love Crabs? Try Indochine Tiger Beer Crabs!

Had a photo with the stars of the night! The CRABS right here at Indochine
Singaporean had been known to love having all kinds of crabs from chilli crabs, black pepper crabs, salted egg yolk crabs, XO crab bee hoon and many more…
I myself have always enjoyed all kinds of crabs and glad to be given the preview tasting of the Tiger Beer crabs, Assam crabs and the very Indochine! Tom Yum crabs.

The star of the crab launch, Tiger Beer Crab. Launching this 22nd September at SaVanh by Indochine is giving away a complimentary bucket of Tiger Beer (worth $45++) and exclusive Tiger Beer collectibles with any every 3 crabs purchased. Collectibles are while stock last.
The sauce had a generous portion of Tiger Beer but don’t worry about getting drunk finishing the whole plate. The crab meat sweetness was heightened by the beer and the trick of having this is to dip a generous amount of the sauce before sending it to your mouth. The flavour is rich with a sweet bitterness taste.

Classic Tom Yum broth reduction with ‘Live’ 800gm Sri Lankan crab. Using Indochine’s classic Tom Yum recipe and a good reduced broth to “wok” with ‘Live’ 800gm crab. To compliment the dish, burned fresh lemongrass stalk are added for an aromatic finishing.

The thick Tom Yam broth is ideal for dipping with your crab meat. Totally Indochine inspired, it has an authentic Tom Yam taste without the spiciness in my opinion. I would say an appetite teaser if you are someone who enjoy Tom Yam but could not take spicy food.

Assam crab, Indochine’s style. Using ‘Live’ 800gm good size and good meat ratio crab, the crabs are infused with Assam paste as the core of the marinate. After which allow the marinated crab to sit for a while before putting it on high pre-heated wok, throwing in diced garlic and our special blend of seasonings and spice. Lastly, the roast whole garlic to pair and a burnt lime for that extra punch!

Its aromatic and kinda sweet I would say. An easily acceptable taste for the family including kids. The well marinated sweet crab meat does do justice to the dish.

My 3 personal favourites were Nem Khao Hor, Xinh and Paa. The reason was simple. I am someone who enjoys healthy food. Nem Khao Hor was wrapped with all the healthy greens and chicken. I loved the clean and crunchy wrap which was good on its own or you could dip into the sauce provided. Xinh and Paa were raw beef and salmon which I found it to be fresh and appetising to the palate. Simplicity at its best with nature best present of herbs and spices.
