Having earned themselves the reputation as having one of the island’s best Chili Pomelo crab dishes, Blue Lotus has brought over their crowned Chili Pomelo Crab to the Tanjong Pagar outlet when it was only exclusively available at their flagship outlet. As part of an effort to revamp their menu, the award-winning restaurant will be featuring their best dishes for office workers and food connoisseurs to enjoy!

Conceptualised under the guidance of Owner and Culinary Director, Ricky Ng, the menu feature elegant dishes that stays true to its oriental roots but with a modern twist. Customers can look forward to enjoying refreshed renditions of their seafood dishes paired perfectly with their signature Chili Pomelo crab sauce.

Blue Lotus Signature Chilli Pomelo Crab

The Chilli Pomelo crab sauce is incorporated in classic mainstays like Signature Chilli Pomelo Crab ($9/100g), Signature Chilli Pomelo Crispy Soft-Shell Crabs ($22) and Chilli Pomelo Mussels ($30). Putting the seafood aside, for the first time diners can also indulge in the debut of the Chili Pomelo Crab Tart in Singapore, a new Blue Lotus signature dish which was originally conceptualised in July 2017 by Ricky himself.

The tarts are only cooked to ordered which could take around 20 mins for the bundles of joy to arrive on the table, but this ensures that the tarts keep their high standards- imagine a delicate crust packed with rich crab flavours when one of them is bitten into that is almost akin to an asian-crab version of a shepherd’s pie! Additionally, Blue Lotus has plans to bring their signature Chili Pomelo crab sauce to every household by packaging it in jars ready for purchase.
