Best Chilli Crab

The classic Singapore dish. Anyone have a strong opinion? Probably in Chinatown?

    Man, I'm not even sure where you'd get that besides at Penang (in Chinatown).

      I'd have to agree that Penang would be the only place but I don't see it on their menu: http://boston.menupages.com/restauran...

        There are a couple of spicy crab dishes under the chef's specialties.

          Yep, #21 ("Penang House Special Crabs") is the chilli crab.

          I don't know if #23 ("Hot & Spicy Crab") is the one, but they will make a pretty killer pepper crab too -- just axe for it, they'll know.
