Introduction: Established in 1976, Red House Seafood is one of Singapore’s oldest seafood restaurants and is synonymous with Singapore cuisine. Over the years, the restaurant has evolved with the country’s growth and identity, representing the palette of flavours that reflect Singapore’s cultural diversity.
Offerings: Since 1976, their chilli crab has always been consistent throughout – the recipe has never been changed. The Chilli Crab sits on a sweeter, tomato-based-egg-y gravy, yet without the use of much spices, you can still feel the heat under your tongue. This eggy chilli sauce compliments really well with their fried mantou too. It’s finger-licking good!
