To celebrate National Day, JPOT is launching Singapore’s most iconic dish, the Chilli Crab, as a soup base in all its restaurants! The local hotpot specialist, known for its “Hotpot Singapore Style”, will be introducing the Chilli Crab Soup Base ($19.80++) in August, so that you and your loved ones can enjoy chilli crab while having your favourite hotpot dishes. It’s the best of both worlds and good news to all who love both their hotpots and chilli crabs!
If you relish JUMBO Seafood’s award-winning Chilli Crab, you will be pleasantly surprised at how similar JPOT’s Chilli Crab Soup Base tastes. The sweet-tasting, mildly spicy soup base, takes inspiration from JUMBO’s signature dish and is perfect for cooking your seafood in, as it brings out the freshness and flavour of it. Folks who order the soup base will also be treated to a fun and interactive dining experience, where they will see their hotpot transform into a yummy chilli crab dish right before their very eyes!
“We wanted to celebrate National Day in a big way, so we decided to introduce one of Singapore’s most iconic dishes as a soup base at JPOT! We first came up with this idea more than a year ago, and the team spent six months researching how to recreate our signature JUMBO Chilli Crab in a soup, so that our customers can enjoy their favourite local dish as a hotpot too. We believe our customers will love having the best of both worlds in one meal,” – Mr Ang Kiam Meng, JUMBO’s Group CEO
For starters, cook the live crab in the soup base for exactly three minutes (use the hourglass timer that comes along with the dish to ensure accuracy). When the soup is ready, you can proceed to cook your buffet of hotpot ingredients. Every morsel soaks up the “shiok” soup base, full of flavour by now, making it a delight to tuck into.
The fun part comes after your hotpot meal! A friendly staff will be on hand to assist you in preparing the actual Chilli Crab dish. Cornstarch is first poured in, followed by an egg, and the soup base (by now a sauce) is mixed thoroughly till it thickens to the right consistency. After a few minutes, you will have yourself a fragrant chilli crab dish! Pair it with some “Man Tous” from JUMBO Seafood or Crispy Beancurd Skin to enjoy it to the fullest.
What’s more, a Chilli Crab Set for two will be introduced at a special price of S$52++ as part of JPOT’s National Day celebrations! The set, only available in the month of August, comes with Live Crab and JPOT’s signature ingredients such as the Live Prawns, Hand- Made Fish Ball, Fish Paste Tofu and Fried Fish Skin! Guaranteed to please the palate, this is one deal that you will not want to miss out on.
