Drunken Prawns & Chili Shrimp @ East Coast Beach

Dinner on Thursday on East Coast Beach with Singapore peeps. Sheena had been there once on her previous SIN visit in 2002 and seconded the decision to go back.

Long Beach Seafood one of the larger indoor/outdoor venues on the waterfront. View is that of cargo liner after cargo liner after cargo liner. Very industrial beach but the lights are so damn pretty.

Drunken Prawns:

1. Take large live prawns and put them into a heavy glass dish
2. Tease the squeamish white ladies by having them almost pop out of the dish
3. Pour a cup of booze onto the live prawns
4. Recover the dish, remove from table to respect delicate sensibilities
5. Fry those fuckers like they were retarded juvenile delinquents on Texas death row.
6. Serve in a lovely broth with fried rice and lemon garnished finger bowl.

Other well known specialities include the Chili Crab - rich thick chili sauce over a whole steamed Sri Lankan crab (you can pick your own if so inclined...

and you can have the waitress crack it for you ... which we did...)

The live seafood tanks are as good as visiting Marineland except way cheaper. Monster size Dungeness and Alaskan King crabs and the previously unheard of Sea Mantis. Didn't try them. This time.

Mantis shrimp are very cool.

One of the best SF stories I ever read had mantis shrimp in a starring role.

Fascinating, the forms and ways of life.

Had the chili crab in Macau. Fantastic. Did you get the little platic gloves and dig right in?
