Hong Kong - Under the Bridge Spicy Crab

klyeoh | Dec 5, 201107:34 AM

First heard about this restaurant from Singaporean friends/relatives who dined there during their holidays in Hong Kong. Then, as we were having Indonesian-style chilli crabs (cooked using Papua New Guinean crabs) in East Java a couple of weeks back, a Malaysian colleague also mentioned how much he preferred Under the Bridge's spicy crab dish in Hong Kong - which further heightened my curiousity.

Anyway, I finally got round to trying out their much-vaunted spicy crab this evening. The crabs were smallish (nowhere near the size of Sri Lankan crabs used in Singapore for chilli or black pepper crab dishes). The crisp garlic/chilli/scallion topping was good - but actually tasted better with pork ribs - yep, there was a Under the Bridge Pork-Rib dish, which was delicious.

Another signature dish - Under the Bridge fried rice was memorable - diced prawns, carrots, kailan stems, red cabbage and salted duck's egg yolk.

We also ordered the bittergourd and shrimp omelette which was delicious.
