This week, we have a special guest Makan Kaki who really needs no introduction, but what the hey, say hello to George Young – Lipton spokesperson and actor in HBOAsia’s forthcoming original miniseries Grace!
This self-confessed tea-lover has been getting lessons from mixologist Joel Fraser of The Cufflink Club – all the better to mix up delicious tea-based Cocktails & Mocktails, recipes of which you can find here!
As we waxed lyrical about our mutual love for Earl Grey tea and George’s not-so-secret love for boybands (Backstreet Boys, anyone?), we also discussed some of our favourite places to enjoy seafood.
For George, this place really impressed him on a recent visit. Now, with a name like Master Crab, you’d better be able to put your money where your mouth is. Or in this case, put your crabs where our mouths are! Thankfully, Master Crab is not a misnomer or an exaggeration.
In particular, their salted egg crab is a joy and delight to eat. Most salted-egg crab dishes come with a dry coating, but at Master Crab, theirs is a thick, rich, viscous, eggy sauce, made extra fragrant with a liberal sprinkling of curry leaves.
George recommends you go with friends, order two crabs to share and be sure to add an order of cereal prawns. Why? Because it’s the crispy, deep-fried cereal bits you’ll want to heap into the salted-egg crab sauce for a magical, decadent combination of taste and texture!
