帝威Di Wei Teochew Restaurant is located at food canopy @ singapore botanical gardens. it’s a nice airy canteen, not crowded and with ample parking.
we came here to have roti prata at the muslim food stall S.M. Aisha on 28.12.2014, and was staring at the 2 large cold crabs on display at the teochew stall next to it.
we finally decided 1/2way through our roti prata, to end the staring & all unfulfilled desires and bought one S$16 cold crab.
it was really good! ^^
it was large, packed with roes, and the meat filled to the shell. meat was sweet.
at first, they gave us a sweet red chilli, the type used in some dimsum restaurant. after some bites, i decided not to let live & asked if they had the teochew “kig you” 桔油.. they had, and very friendly & cheerful about it. so, always ask… ^^
ya..i love this crab..cold crab was S$28++ last time at chui huay lim. this S$16 was just as good.
i plan to come back & try their other teochew food, like braised duck, sambal crayfish etc.
