JPOT New Chili Crab Soup Base

To celebrate National Day, JPOT is launching Singapore’s most iconic dish, the Chilli Crab, as a soup base in all its restaurants! The local hotpot specialist, known for its “Hotpot Singapore Style”, will be introducing the Chilli Crab Soup Base ($19.80++) in August, so that everyone can enjoy chilli crab while having their favourite hotpot dishes.

It’s the best of both worlds and good news to all who love both their hotpots and chilli crabs! I had such a good meal over at JPOT's VivoCity outlet and would really recommend you guys to head down and taste it for yourselves!

If you relish JUMBO Seafood’s award-winning Chilli Crab, you will be pleasantly surprised at how similar JPOT’s Chilli Crab Soup Base tastes. The sweet-tasting, mildly spicy soup base, takes inspiration from JUMBO’s signature dish, and is perfect for cooking your seafood in, as it brings out the freshness and flavour of it.

Customers who order the soup base will also be treated to a fun and interactive dining experience, where they will see their hotpot transform into a yummy chilli crab dish right before their very eyes!

For starters, cook the live crab in the soup base for exactly three minutes (use the hourglass timer that comes along with the dish to ensure accuracy). When the soup is ready, you can proceed to cook your buffet of hotpot ingredients. Every morsel soaks up the “shiok” soup base, full of flavour by now, making it a delight to tuck into. 

The fun part comes after your hotpot meal! A friendly staff will be on hand to assist you in preparing the actual Chilli Crab dish. Cornstarch is first poured in, followed by an egg, and the soup base (by now a sauce) is mixed thoroughly till it thickens to the right consistency.

After a few minutes, you will have yourself a fragrant chilli crab dish! Pair it with some “Man Tous” from JUMBO Seafood or Crispy Beancurd Skin to enjoy it to the fullest. 

What’s more, a Chilli Crab Set for two will be introduced at a special price of SGD$52++ as part of JPOT’s National Day celebrations! The set, only available in the month of August, comes with Live Crab and JPOT’s signature ingredients such as the Live Prawns, Hand- Made Fish Ball, Fish Paste Tofu and Fried Fish Skin! Guaranteed to please the palate, this is one deal that you will not want to miss out on.
