Chili crab is an iconic Singapore dish with the crabs served shell on. I wanted to try and recreate the flavors and experience of scooping up the wonderful sauce without the messy wrestling with shells (which is great fun in Singapore but not always so nice on a date in NYC), so it's made with picked crab meat at Masak.

Mantou buns are traditional and can be served steamed, but I enjoy the crunch of the fried ones. These buns and the chili sauce can be easily found at Asian supermarkets.
