As a pescetarian, I eat a lot a lot of fish/seafood and crabs are one of my all-time favourites! Enter Momma’s Kong, a casual and relaxing crab shack a.k.a. heaven for crab lovers~
They’ve got sides such as tofu chips and garlic prawns but clearly, the crabs are the highlight! Air-flown daily from Sri Lanka, each crab weighs about 650g, just the right size for one person. But why would I stop at one? Both the red chilli crab and black pepper crab went really well with the best ever sinful-but-I-want-more oversized fluffy fried buns (get the fried instead of “healthy” steamed ones!), especially the fiery black pepper sauce. The saucy red chilli crab was more sweet than spicy so I reckon not everyone will like it.
Now, I love crabs but I hate the de-shelling part (yes yes that’s the fun part, I hear you purists) so it’s great that Momma’s Kong offers a de-shelling service for $10+ per crab! And that’s how I enjoyed the crab bee hoon soup – fresh meat, meat, and more meat swimming in the MSG-free milky broth. Naturally sweet and light, this is the complete opposite of Mellben’s famous bee hoon soup. Again, depends on which side of the camp you prefer.
By the way, there’s a Free-Flo MmmMom-Bo Sunday on every first Sunday of the month from 7pm to 10pm with free-flowing crab, sides and alcohol for $78 NETT! I’m so tempted!! Must remember to make a reservation if you are interested because of limited space (I heard someone already reserved way in advance for January next year omg).
