The chilli crab (with a side of fried mantou) is one of the most iconic dishes of Singapore. People argue about where the best one is, but I suggest just getting it at any of the argued-about places because you won’t go wrong. One of the popular options is Alliance Seafood inside the Newton Food Centre (commonly known as Newton Circus). Newton Circus if full of seafood hawker stalls, so look for #27. It’s just a little bit on the pricier than the other stalls, and while I honestly haven’t been to the others, at least I can guarantee Alliance is a top choice. I recommend just getting the meal, which also includes another iconic dish, cereal prawns, and fried rice.
