Keng Eng Kee Seafood The Best Chili Crab in Singapore

Long before it was made famous on Netflix’s Street Food, Keng Eng Kee (KEK) was the go-to spot to get your chili crab fix in Singapore. This open-air restaurant isn’t much for looks (you’re practically sitting on the street in plastic chairs), but don’t let that fool you. Put on a bib and plastic gloves, and get cracking. Crabs must be pre-ordered in advance (they will sell out), and while you must try a chili crab, be sure to order a black pepper crab, too. Whereas the chili crab is sweeter (it’s served in a sauce based on tomato and egg), the black pepper crab is spicier thanks to its peppery seasoning. Make sure to ask for plenty of the steam buns to soak up the sauce! And be sure to get an order of the coffee-glazed pork ribs – they were our favorites.
