    Gee, I had seafood at Jumbo last night Yup, it was (supposedly) not only the birth place of chili crabs, Roland's father (Mr Lim) and his wife (Mdm Cher) were also the creators of the above dish, crispy baby squids & sotong you tiao. However, the original chili crab was very different ~ sweet and without sambal or eggs. Mdm Cher used to be there, a very nice lady and said to be the woman behind all the recipes.

    Chili Crab
    Roland Restaurant

    Didn't re-style my crab to make it look like a crab. Just took the photo as how it was served.
    I don;t eat crab...so not much to comment. Rating base on the sauce only
    The sauce was great when paired with my mini fried man tou. Not too sweet like some other places

    Sorry typo error, Mr Lim (the policeman who wore shorts) is the father, Sin Leong is the godfather. Iirc Roland Restaurant was originally Sin Leong Restaurant, renamed after Roland's take over.

    The chili crabs still looks Perhaps taking it from another angle, with the shell in the back?
