1. House Of Seafood
This seafood restaurant famous for their crab has come up with a micro-friendly version in three flavours: chilli, black and salted egg yolk. The Sri Lankan crabs are cooked before being vacuum-packed and frozen. To heat up, thaw the package for five to seven minutes before placing it in a microwave for five minutes or stir-frying the crabs.
The restaurant’s owner, Mr Francis Ng, spent three years developing the product. The crabs are priced at $60 a kg in a box – similar to dine-in prices.
