Kreta Ayer Restaurant is great for Singaporean Cuisine. Even better, they have a number of locations around Sydney. Whether you are after something quick and tasty like roti canai or a laska or if you are after a seafood feast or one of Singapores most famous dishes the Singapore chilli mud crab, Kreta Ayer has you sorted.
We were welcomed and served by the wonderful staff. We were dining in a group and indulged in a variety of Singaporean delights from the menu. We were told that the seafood was sourced fresh and decided to test the waters. We ordered the Singapore Chilli Crab and as per tradition, the live Mud crab was paraded at the table.
To start the ginger and shallot scallops were sweet and yummy. To mix it up we also ordered a Singaporean favourite, the roti canai, the stir fry noodles Char Kway Teow and the hawker style cereal prawns all of these taking us back to our recent visit to Singapore.
What came next was the piece de resistance, the whole steamed coral trout which was literally melt in your mouth. This was followed by the amazing Singapore Chilli mud crab. The crab beautifully cooked and served in the mouth watering sauce with the mantou buns to soak up the sauce.
For dessert we shared the soybean curd a simple dessert, add sugar cane syrup to taste. We also shared an Ice kachang which is always a favourite, a randomly delicious mix of shaved ice, multicoloured syrup, red bean, corn, conensed milk and jelly.
We love this place for our Singaporean Hawker style food fix. Thanks to the staff of Kreta Ayer for an amazing meal and hospitality. Thanks to Ompty for arranging the visit.
