Singapore chili crab @ Daimo Richmond

mary | Dec 11, 200412:05 PM

Ever since Pacific Seafood restaurant closed a few months ago, we have searched in vain for a suitable replacement to satisfy my craving for good and inexpensive crab. Despite the good things I've read about Legendary Palace, I was not so impressed with the ginger crab they served (small and not so tasty). Daimo was next on my list, and with some misgivings we ordered the Singapore chili crab. I figured this dish is so easy to make how bad can it be? Well, not if you're a purist. Crab was a decent size and tasty but the sauce was all wrong, from the color (a strange yellow - turmeric?) to the taste (a little off to my palate). Dish was served with soft steamed buns - I would have preferred a crusty roll. Oh well. Has anyone had good singapore chili crab in the Bay Area? Straits Cafe?
