Skai and I were invited alongside other bloggers for a food tasting event at Crowne Plaza Crab and Crepe some time ago. Unfortunately yours truly has been rather tardy in reviewing this and the buffet is no longer available. In any case, I really liked the pictures taken that day and would like to share them for memory sake. LOL
Skai was basically my tastebuds that day as I was feeling extremely queazy and unwell. Azur (one of our favourite places for food tastings) brought together Crabs and Crepes (both sweet and savoury) for a buffet! Here are some items where c(hubby) aka Skai savoured!
Thus when Food News and Crab in da Bag invited both #nadskai and #leonfidel for a tasting at Crab in da Bag at their newest outlet Singapore Sports Hub, we were extremely excited! Needless to say, we said yes 🙂
The new venue at Singapore Sports Hub boasts a scenic waterfront view of the skyline of Tanjong Rhu.
This time, they invited Skai (otherwise known as c(hubby) on my blog) and myself for a Summertime Cookout with Somersby at Crab in Da Bag! I have been meaning to check out Crab in Da Bag actually! It's located at Big Splash and I pass by there very often when I go for my Yoga lessons at Updog Studio!
Before we began, pictures with their lovely Photowall area!
I was intentionally dressed in blue and white as I remembered the decor of Crab in Da Bag, nautical themed! Picture with Rachie and Michelle!
We were given our very own apron and also armed with both Somersby Apple Cider and Pear Cider during our 'cooking expedition'
First up, Salted Egg Prawns!
Liquid courage for yours truly. Truth to be told, while I graduated with a Diploma in Hospitality Management and had served 6 months in a restaurant during my poly times, I fumble quite a bit in the kitchen.
I will never be a domestic goddess. I am messy as hell and I hate to clean. Coupled with the fact that I suck in the kitchen, honestly I wonder at times why did my Virgo (i.e. clean freak) hubby married me.
In any case, TOO LATE! 😛
It was an enjoyable time cooking actually! I drizzled Somersby at the end for a touch of lovely juicy sweetness.
I also had the opportunity to sample Somersby's latest flavour: Pear which is made with 22.5% real pear juice, with no artificial sweeteners, flavours or colourings. Originating from a Danish recipe, it stands out from the usual staples of predominantly- dry ciders with its uncomplicated sweetness. For those wanting a fruity flavoured cider with a breath of freshness, the first taste will be like biting into a fresh pear, followed by a crisp and subtle hint of natural sweetness.
Somersby Apple and Pear Cider retails at all leading supermarkets and hyper marts at $16.80 for a pack of four bottles.
After the cookout, we were treated to a feast!
We were treated to the Caboodle Boil which in the picture above, serves 3-4 pax and is priced at $299.
The Caboodle Boil consists of Boston Lobster, Sri Lankan Crabs, King Crab Legs, Yabbies, Tiger Prawns, Venus Clams, Sausages, Corn on the Cob, Potatoes and Onions boiled in their classic blend of Louisiana herbs and spices. It is also accompanied with various dips!
Accompanied with Somersby Cider, it was one of our most fulfilling and sumptious meals ever!
Thank you Somersby for the fantastic opportunity! We will definitely be back to dine at Crab in Da Bag and of course order Somersby! (I already order Somersby everywhere I go :p)
