Under The Bridge Spicy Crab
What we love…
- If you're looking for seafood with a spicy kick, make your way to Under the Bridge Spicy Crab for a heaping helping of tender crab covered in chili and garlic sauce.
- Under The Bridge Spicy Crab got its start as a dai pai dong (open-air food stall) located near the Jaffe Road bypass. Hong Kong locals lined up day after day for the famous dish and soon there were too many customers to serve out of the tiny stall and the restaurant had to moved to a much larger location. Today this Asian fry-up is serves both locals and tourist and has even been visited by Anthony Bourdain, which of course made it all that more popular.
- Duck, clams, lobster, spicy tofu, and veggies are all on the menu, and since most everything is fried basically everything is delicious. Most dishes are quite large which is perfect if you're with a group and can split a few different dishes.
- The spicy crab dish is obviously the main event, the plate is large enough to share and piled high with the restaurants secret blend of chili sauce and garlic. There's five different levels of spicy, 1 is hot and 5 is pretty much unbearable, if you're a fan of spicy do something in-between, otherwise it's just too hot to enjoy. This dish is pretty hard to eat while looking suave, and likely you'll make a bit of a mess in the process, don't worry it's all part of the experience.
