Long Ji ( 龍 記 ) - Ultimate Crab Bee Hoon



Crab Bee Hoon is one of the dish that LD and I totally have a soft spot for. About 8 years ago, we were head over heals with the version cooked Ming Kee in Macpherson (Click here for Ming Kee review). Unlike the signature soup version by Melben, the version that we like is more has less soupy, but robust and filled with Wok Hei.

Dunno how, LD found this new place Long Ji and we fell in love with their Crab Bee Hoon (Long Ji Bee Hoon Crab $55/kg). From the look, it will not win the prettiest crab dish contest, however, who cares as long as it tasted fantastic. The broth / gravy is robust and packs with the freshness and sweetness of the crabs. The bee hoon is covered with Wok Hei, slightly al dente yet manage to soak up the beautiful gravy. For this dish, it is important to use female crab, as the roe adds flavour to this dish together with fried shallots and pork lard. The crabs are good in size and fresh. So definitely worthy to be the signature dish of Long Ji.
