[Monday, October 21] Autumn marks the time of the year when Chinese hairy crabs are at their finest. Celebrating this hankered annual feast, Imperial Court at MGM MACAU and Chún at MGM COTAI present a great variety of creative hairy crab delicacies made only from premium hairy crabs, available from now until November 30.
Hairy crabs come to full maturity in the ninth and tenth months of the lunar calendar, which means it is the best time of the year to feast on the much-loved crustaceans. Here in MGM, every hairy crab served is deliberately selected, ensuring all are in their best quality, well-packed with heavenly golden roe and sweet flesh.
The best way to enjoy hairy crab simply has to be steamed in a whole, which best preserves the taste of freshness. To save all the hassles and messes of hand-peeling the crab, both Imperial Court and Chún provide crab peeling service for guests to fully savor the unshelled goodness.
Infused with a great dose of creativity, dishes of hairy crab are also gems of the season. The Imperial Court’s chef-recommended Braised fillet of Macau sole with hairy crab roe in casserole elevates the sweetness of the crab roe with the soft and fresh seasonal local sole, served in a sizzling hot stone pot. Giving a little creative twist to the classic crab roe noodle dish, Braised buckwheat noodles with scallop and hairy crab roe adds a unique flavor to the luscious crab roe with the pairing of hearty, al dente buckwheat noodles. Deep-fried sesame coated glutinous rice dumplings with crab roe wraps crab roe into its chewy and crispy glutinous rice shell, enriching the layering of flavors and texture like never before.
Dishes of hairy crab at Chún are also not to be missed. The classic Steamed crab roe dumpling is stuffed with heavenly crab roe and soup in a thin layer of dumpling skin, making it truly a flavor explosion in one bite. The chef recommended Braised bean curd with hairy crab roe is a true delicate indulgence, where the creamy crab roe and soft bean curd make a good pair to double the goodness of silky, melt-in-mouth texture.
The hairy crab special is now served at Imperial Court at MGM MACAU and Chún at MGM COTAI until November 30. Reserve your seat and savor this delicacy while it’s in season.
