Black Pepper Crab @ Dimond Kitchen

Calling Crab Lovers, Diamond Kitchen is having their crab promotions. 3 Sri Lankan Crab per Set, they can cook in more than 20 different styles and priced between $49.90 to $55.90. This crab promotions is available until 31 January 2021.

We tried 3 different cooking style of crabs starting with Mongolian Crab. My first time trying this style of crab. The crabs are fresh and juicy cooked in Mongolian style sauce, which has a touch creaminess, peppery and a hint of curry powder. It is unique and I don’t mind ordering this again.

Salted Egg Yolk Crab (Dry). The crabs are coated with salted egg yolk batter and deep-fried till the batter is crispy. Though the salted egg coating is nice, the crabs spend a bit too much time in the frying oil, resulting in slight dryness in the meat. For Sri Lankan crabs, I would prefer the Salted Egg Yolk Wet version.

For Salted Egg Yolk Crab dry version, Diamond Kitchen (“DK”) can consider using soft-shell crabs instead of Sri Lankan crabs. The soft-shell crab won’t take long to cook and the combination of sweet juicy flesh with crispy salted egg yolk coating will be amazing. This dish will also attract those customers that do not like to get their fingers. I am just salivating thinking about this.

Black Pepper Crab. The most memorable crab dish for the night. The crabs are sweet and fresh, blend nicely with the black pepper sauce packs with a solid peppery flavour. One word to describe it, Yummy!

Champagne Pork Ribs ($24 for Medium). A signature dish of DK. The boneless pork ribs are crisp and juicy, evenly coated with caramelised champagne sauce. The sauce is sweet and refreshing at the same time.

La la Bee Hoon ($24 for Medium). Smooth and silky bee hoon cooked with clam infused broth. The soup is naturally sweet and absorbs into the bee hoon. DK version of la la bee hoon is very generous with the pepper, delivering a nice warm flavour in each slurp of the broth. A very comforting dish, especially during this rainy season.

Three Egg Spinach ($21 for Medium). One of my favourite spinach dishes. The broth is robust, while three eggs covered most of the surface of this dish. The wolfberry added a nice touch of sweetness in this savoury dish.

Pumpkin Beancurd ($21for Medium). A very tasty tofu dish. The tofu is smooth, silky and delicate. The pumpkin sauce is robust, creamy and infused with seafood flavour. A surprising burst of flavour in this ordinary-looking dish.

Beef Hor fun ($10 for small). A traditional beef hor fun style, plated in rustic style. The gravy is very solid and the portion is very generous. However, the hor fun lacks the wok hei x-factor, plus some part of the noodle is lumpy and not silky. 

Beef Hor Fun
Pumpkin & Gingko Yam Paste ($16 for small). A tasty thick yam paste. The pumpkin slices and gingko provided a contrasting flavour to the yam paste. Meanwhile the coconut cream slightly diluted, I was hoping that it is thicker and creamier.

Due to the safe distancing measure, the restaurant setting becomes very spacious. The place is brightly lit and the use of white table cloth and golden colour chairs allow to create a modern Chinese restaurant setup. Located in Laguna Park Condominium make the restaurant isolated, however, through its delicious dishes, it has attracted a long list of loyal customers. 

Overall, the current Sri Lankan crab promotions are value for money. Most of their dishes are well executed and delivery solid flavours. Don’t expect a creative fusion cuisine, instead look forward to comforting Chinese cuisine. Cheers!! 

Thank you very much, Kristine and Diamond Kitchen Team for hosting us.
