I've done the Chili crab scene for about 10 years now -- but this was my time to Jumbo. Before I aways went near the Merlion across from the Fullterton (and had good food there too) bur wanted to try someplace new since it had been 5 years since I've been made! Last minute in the cab decision -- and Jumbo on the River it was (versus Long Beach on Sentosa ), Glad we did -- the traffic look not great into/outof Sentosa.
So we landed at Jumbo -- wait wasn't more than 5 minutes for an outdoor seat (at around 7.30 PM), Service was nice and prompt -- as is the food creation too. In typical style, if you order your whole meal -- than don't expect it to come to in anything other random style. Whatever plate is made and ready to go set gets serverd at its peak. So we did some appetizers like grilled giant shrimp that came after our chili crab,but before the black pepper crab, etc. All in all it was a fine scene I really don't mind having food various tastiness happens at random spots!
We had the crabs 2 ways - Chili and Black Pepper. They are both SOOO good and so different.. I love one leading to the other. Of course the Montou we tried both fried and steamed. Slight presence to us for the fried, but only slightly. I enjoyed both types on the chili sauce.
We also had an order of the Kai Lan w/ Garlic -- and that was good steady. A nice foil ...
The we did other the larger giant prawns BBQ -- each prawn was giant but very very tasty. 1 of the prawns was more than enough to fill us up just right!
All in all, a good "crab" outing! Nom Nom!
