The hairy crab season is back! Enjoy 2 weeks of fresh hairy crabby goodness from 2 to 21 October at Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant. Chef Ong has concocted five delicious innovative Shanghai Hairy Crab recipes for the enjoyment of diners.

Hairy crabs (also known as Chinese mitten crab) are named for their hairy claws that look like mittens. These freshwater crabs are an autumn delicacy in Shanghai cuisine and eastern China. The best traditional way to prepare these seasonal crabs is by steaming, which allows you to preserve the crabs’ natural sweetness, thus the meat is tender, juicy and delicious as well as to maintain the richness of the creamy golden roe.

Indulge in these seasonal offerings prepared in various culinary methods, diners will be asking for more; Steamed Hairy Crab with Ohba Leaf, Braised Shark’s Fin with Hairy Crabmeat and Crab Roe, Braised Green Bean Skin with Hairy Crabmeat and Crab Roe, Pan Fried Hairy Crabmeat Paste and Steamed “Shanghainese” Dumpling with Hairy Crabmeat and Crab Roe.
