My two cents:

The highlights of this year's "Ultimate Crab Feast" are the six new crab creations: Petai Crab, Assam Crab, Kam Heong Crab, Coffee Crab, Ginger Broth Crab and Wasabi Salted Egg Yolk Crab.

My favourites out of the six would be the Kam Heong Crab and Coffee Crab.

I am not a big fan of the taste of coffee but I do love its fragrance, and the culinary team at Plaza Brasserie has nailed this savoury Coffee Crab dish. With its thick coffee sauce combined with bits of sweet succulent crab meat dug out from these Sri Lankan Mud Crabs, the combination is perfect!

As for the Kam Heong crab, it was an interesting dish as I had never heard of Kam Heong before. Apparently "Kam Heong" is Cantonese and means 'Golden Fragrance (金香)' for the fragrance that is imparted during the cooking process. This is a signature Malaysian stir-fry style and the flavours reminded me strongly of Har Cheong Gai (shrimp paste) with a tinge of curry and chilli spice. My Asian roots just could not say "no" to this dish!

The Ginger Broth Crab did not make it to my favourite list but it would definitely be one that I have to recommend. Everyone at the table gushed over the flavourful ginger broth and no one left a drop of the soup behind in their bowls. That is how good it is, and must be tried!

In addition to the six new crab dishes, there will be still be the iconic favourites like Singapore Chilli Crab, Cereal Crab, Salted Egg Yolk Crab, Black Pepper Crab, White Pepper Craband Crab with Honey Rock Sugar.

Together with the "Ultimate Crab Feast" buffet, you can also enjoy the delicious "Best of Asia" buffet spread where other tantalising crab-inspired dishes will be available such as Crab Meat Balls with Potato, Curry Crab Meat in Kueh Pie Tee, Crab Meat Chawanmushi, Thai Glass Noodle Salad, Spicy Crab Meat Salad, Breaded Crab Cake and Pandan Liu Sha Pau in Basket.
