Do not expect to the usual here at Blue Lotus – their signature chilli crab sauce uses chopped herbs and spices such as lemongrass and curry leaves as well as fresh tomatoes and lacks the common starchiness. The chilli oil in the sauce ensures a slow burn in your mouth, but thankfully the ingenious addition of a fresh pomelo topping brings a refreshing burst of sweet acidity that moderates its fire. Inspired by Emmanuel Stroobant’s own love for chilli crab, Blue Lotus’s offering is a fresh perspective on this favourite that is definitely worth the try for die-hard fans.
