Palm Beach @ One Fullerton

July 3, 2010

It was a nigh of feasting yesterday. Even the prospect of rainy weather could not quell the inner greed in us. It was CRABS night and CRABS we were going to get never mind the crabby weather!

A colleague displayed her charm, and got us a table in the restaurant at 7pm even though our reservation was for 8pm. I relinquished the task of ordering to the experts and diligently waited for the food to arrive.

PalmBeach Fried Crunchy Octopi

The first dish that arrived looked like a cross between fried worms and sticky tentacles. I bet the look of this dish would even scare off Andrew Zimmern. But I knew what it was so I gladly chomped down on the fried baby octopus. The sticky sweet sauce paired very well with the crunchiness of the baby octopus.

PalmBeach salted egg yolk crab

Then the highlight of the evening arrived. Salted Egg Crab!!! All those bits of yellow things piled on the crab are the salted egg. Crab itself is already delicious, but together with salted egg? It just brings you a few steps closer to heaven. I hate to say this, and all cardiologists better turn away, but I wish there was more salted egg yolk and more salt in the egg yolk!!! I can imagine just feasting on this entire crab all by myself, but I had to be polite and share. Oh dear lord this is why it brings you a few steps closer to heaven.

PalmBeach crab claw I had a nice pincer to myself, but I think if you are not afraid of a heart attack, the bestest part is the shell, which is filled with all the crab roe.

Palm Beach crab in bee hoon soup

Then we had another crab dish, crab bee hoon. They served us each a bowl of bee hoon in delicious crab broth, with the crabs placed on another platter. We didn’t manage to order the Chilli crab with fried mantou, which is another of my favourite. The best part is of course tearing a part the fried mantou and using that to scoop up all the spicy chilli eggy sauce. SLURP!!!

PalmBeach Kang Kong To make sure the sin was lessened (ya right!), we ordered some fried kang kong vegetables, delicious in its own right as well.

Red Ruby with Pomelo dessert

And finally dessert. I chose some cold pomelo dessert with red rubies and green jewels. They have hot deserts too.

Pickles and Fried Fish

  1. Seafood overdose! It may sound blasphemous to you but I don’t like eggs especially salted eggs! I do like crab meat though…if it’s peeled for me. Haha.

    My fam usually don’t go to an exlusively seafood restaurant but rather, stick to the likes of Tung Lok Group of resturants; pretty conservative.

    • It is indeed blasphemous! Eggs are one of my favourite things!

      It was not too difficult to get at the meat since i was lucky to get the claw…hehehe…

      My family are pretty conservative too…it’s just me splurging outside…oops..

  2. yummy youtiao with mayo!! now I’m craving. I am a very carb person and love dunking the bread in chilli crab sauce too…there is very enough fried mantou….I can go through them really fast!

  3. I love that too! Don’t understand why my colleagues don’t like the chilli crab, they say they don’t like the spicy sauce being sweet but i like!
