A man of few words, Chef Low’s reserved demeanour contrasts his dexterity and control in the kitchen, creating unique and extraordinary meals with the ability to elevate the dining experience for all.

The Wok-fried Crab in Wu Jia Pi Wine is part of Spice Brasserie’s crab party buffet dinner and is actually a family recipe. Other highlights of the restaurant’s endless crab party buffet, which brings eight brand new crab flavours, include the Salted Egg Crab with Curry Leaves, the Stir Fried Crab with Jalapeño and the Rock Salt Baked Crab.
Crab is sourced from Indonesia.
First, it is coated with corn starch and deep-fried, then sautéed with finely chopped Chinese herbs, ginger, garlic, red onion and red chilli.
The Chinese herbs include Dang Gui (or Angelica sinensis, also commonly known as dong quai or “female ginseng”), Yu Zhu (or Fragrant Solomonseal Rhizome) and Dang Shen (or Codonopsis).
Thereafter, it is flambéed with Wu Jia Pi wine and wolfberry, which gives it a very distinct overall fragrance.
Finally, it is sprinkled with the Five Spices Fragrance Salt to coat its outer layer.
With a focus on local and Asian flavours, Spice Brasserie also boasts international offerings and extensive a la carte as well as buffet selections. Its spacious interiors and multiple cuisine options make it a perfect dining destination for everyone.
