JPOT Introduces New Chilli Crab Soup Base to Celebrate the Most Patriotic Month of the Year.
Known for its “Hotpot Singapore Style”, JPOT has launched Singapore’s most iconic dish, the chilli crab set, with the ‘Chilli Crab’ soup base in all its restaurants. From now till the end of August, enjoy the best of both worlds and tuck into both chilli crabs set in hotpots style!
If you’re a fan of JUMBO Seafood’s award-winning Chilli Crab, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how similar JPOT’s Chilli Crab Soup Base tastes. Taking inspiration from the JUMBO’s signature dish, the JPOT soup base is sweet-tasting and mildly spicy.
As part of JPOT’s National Day celebrations, a Chilli Crab Set for two will be priced at a special price of $52++ for the whole of August. The coolest part of this meal is its fun and interactive experience, where diners get to see their hotpot soup base transform into a yummy chilli crab dish right in front of their very eyes!
We ordered and enjoyed our hotpot as per normal, with classic JPOT ingredients like the Live Prawns, Handmade Fish Ball, Fish Paste Tofu and Fried Fish Skin. Every ingredient thrown into the hotpot further enhances the flavourful soup base, prepping it for the chilli crab transformation happening in a bit. After satisfying ourselves with our hotpot meal, we beckoned for the assistance of a friendly JPOT staff to assist us in the grand transformation. Cornstarch is first poured in, followed by an egg. The soup base (by now a sauce) is mixed thoroughly till it thickens to the right consistency.
The resulting chilli crab sauce is almost identical in taste and consistency as the one you order ready-made from JUMBO, that we almost didn’t believe we conceited it ourselves from the hotpot base. Fresh crabs bathed in a zesty and tangy chilli sauce combined with the excitement of DIY transforming it from a hotpot soup base… it really doesn’t get any better than this when it comes to enjoying our national dish!
Our personal favourites are the fried fish skin and the sliced pork belly. To conclude the already super ‘sedap’ meal, don’t forget to soak the’ man tous’ and the crispy bean curd skin in the chilli sauce for maximum shiokness!
