Crab Festival at Chimes Far Eastern Restaurant


I’ve been to Singapore twice – first time was with my Uncle Dad and it was also the first time that I got to taste the famous Chili Crabs it was so good! My 2nd trip was with my boys (LittleMan V and Daddy C) sadly during this trip we didn’t get the chance to enjoy them crabs.

Mud crab is not widely available in our local Dubai market, it’s one of the things I miss from my hometown-Davao. I grew up having a seafood feast every weekend which my whole clan enjoys. A simple steamed garlic crab dish eaten with rice using our hands and ice cold Coke just makes me so so happy!


Eating a good mud crab dish is an unforgettable experience that brings back childhood memories which is exactly what I had for lunch at Chimes. Daddy C even commented that I am in my happy place – like a little girl enjoying every bite licking my fingers making sure I don’t waste any sweet-chili sauce.

The sweet sticky chili sauce was so inviting since it’s chili bite slowly tickles your senses that you just want more! I had my Singaporean Chili Crab with steamed white rice (the serving was good for 2). On our next visit I’ll try it with bread.


MyNappytales family arrived minutes after they opened for lunch and we had the whole restaurant for ourselves. It was a cozy place with an open kitchen which V absolutely love, he’s always in awe looking at the chefs tossing food.


LittleMan V ordered Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce which he happily shared with LittleMiss C. They clearly enjoyed every bite since we had to order another plate. I must say the peanut sauce was really good. I am such a “sauce” lady.


Daddy C ordered his favorite Tom Yum Kung which has generous amount of shrimps and the tangy sour spicy soup has a distinct aroma of galangal and kafir lime leaves.


Daddy C particularly enjoyed Pad Thai Noodles he almost finished the whole serving!

We have already scheduled our next visit with friends before October ends.

  1. We missed out on the chilli crab when we went to Singapore this summer. How is that possible?!?! It was the one thing I was determined to eat and we didn’t do it! Who goes to Singapore and doesn’t eat chilli crab?

    This looks delicious…all your menu suggestions are perfect for our family. I can imagine myself licking every bit of sauce off of my fingers. (How embarrassing to say that!!)

    • Include me in the list of those who didn’t! I’m just lucky that mud crabs are always available in my hometown.
      It will be food sin not to lick sauce off your fingers. Yummmmmy!
