Chef Ng shreds the crab meat and mixes it with the roe, so you can enjoy crab meat without getting your hands dirty. We polished this off in no time!

2) Braised Tofu, Meatball, Hairy Crab Meat and Roe

This dish may not look the most appetising, but it tasted like heaven.

Shreds of crab meat and minced pork were mixed with shrimp paste, and stuffed into a crab shell.
