From 12 October to 30 November 2015, celebrate the long-awaited season of hairy crab by savouring an indulgent crustacean affair crafted by the masterchefs at Crystal Jade Fine Dining restaurants – Crystal Jade Palace, Crystal Jade Golden Palace and Crystal Jade DINING IN.
Best known for its succulent meat and golden creamy roe, guests can sample the autumnal speciality (imported from Yang Cheng Lake, China) that is available for a limited period only. Delight in various delectable renditions of this seasonal delicacy such as Steamed Hairy Crab, Steamed Hairy Crab Xiao Long Bao and Braised Shark’s Fin with Hairy Crab Roe.
To enhance your dining experience, Crystal Jade has specially crafted a 7-course set menu, featuring a medley of decadent hairy crab dishes, as well as two additions – Braised abalone with sautéed assorted vegetables and the dessert of Glutinous rice dumpling in ginger soup; for $118++ per person.
Start your meal with the Crisp golden Spring roll brimming with Hairy Crab meat, mushrooms and onions. Xiao Long Bao lovers will find delight in the piping hot Steamed Hairy Crab dumpling filled with generous hairy crab meat and umami rich crab stock. Besides the mouth-watering Braised Shark’s Fins with Hairy Crab Roe, the Sauteed Pea Sprouts with Hairy Crab Meat in hairy crab roe sauce is a simple yet luxurious dish to look forward to.
Diners can choose either the Steamed Hairy Crab, or the popular Chilled Hairy Crab* steeped in Chinese “Hua Tiao” wine to provide the fragrance of the dish and complements the natural flavour of the crab. It is also traditionally believed that the yellow wine “yang” quality would balance the “yin” from the Hairy crab.
