Roland's - Better Than Ever

What's Roland's without some crabs?
Roland's has been around for so long, and is famous as the folks that invented chili crab. But despite that, I still think they are underrated. We recently gathered for dinner there with some SunnyHills friends visiting from Taiwan, and were pleased to see that the food seems better than before.



Mixed combination platter
A lovely mixed platter of appetisers to start with. Scallops in mini yam ring, smoked duck breast, tempura asparagus, and wasabi prawns.



Baby Squid
Deep-fried baby squid - crispy sweet and crunchy - along with squid paste you-tiao. Yum yum yum!


Silver bait with garlic, salt and pepper
Silver bait with garlic, salt and pepper - a great finger-licking snack!


Pomfret done two ways
Pomfret done two ways. This was some very fresh fish, and the two cooking styles take skill! Very nicely executed. The deep-fried side was crisp, and the stir-fried pieces were firm and juicy.


Token Vegetable and Tofu
The token vegetable and tofu dish! Not bad, with pleasant sauce and tender tofu.


The dark peppery gravy is loaded with roe!
The black pepper crab's spicy dark gravy is loaded with roe! If you love roe, you will love the richness of its flavours in this dish.

But the crab dish that I **REALLY** adored - and this came personally recommended by Roland himself - is the Salted egg yolk crab with lots of pine nuts, curry leaves, crispy yam strips (hand-shredded), and hae bee (dried shrimp).

This is an Instagram photo I took from a previous visit. This is so very, very good!!! You must try this, along with Roland's signature black sauce prawns (incredible wok hei and beautiful fragrance).

So yes, Roland's is still a fantastic place for comfort seafood. Anyone wanna go back there with me?
