Chimes of our Lives, Crab Fest 2014

Last week my friends and I headed to Chimes Dubai - one of Al Barsha's casual Far Eastern restaurant that caters delectable street food of the Eastern Pacific rim including Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia

October is the beginning of the crab fishing season around the world and Chimes Dubai Crab Fest 2014 is still on offering six crab dishes, perfectly marinated crabs smothered with your favorite sauce served with steamed rice or Mantau buns for only 99 Dirhams. Each crab weighs about 500 grams and is good for 2 people.

We ordered three of the fast selling and tastiest crab dish on the menu including the famous Singaporean Chili Crab, Malaysia's specialty Butter Crab and the Restaurant Managers recommendation Pepper Crab. I was hooked on the Butter Crab, I liked how the taste of the sauce blended with the crab meat and melts in you mouth while inhaling the wafting aroma of the crispy curry leaves and ginger atop the crab served in large wok pan

We also ordered favorites like Tom Yum Goong, Prawn and Vegetable Springs Rolls, Chicken Satay and Sio Mai dim sums

If you are on the hunt for a budget lunch or dinner yet would like to seat on a decent restaurant with really tasty Asian dishes, Chimes Dubai is tucked in the ground floor of Seven Sands Hotel Apartments just across the Sharaf DG Metro Station, bring your friends or family with you and tuck in. Crab Fest ends end of October.

Oh my crab! Before I forget, they serve one of the best Sticky Mango Rice I've tasted in Dubai here at Chimes. It takes me back to my aunties home years ago when she used to cook the sticky rice in coconut milk and the wafting aroma from the kitchen seems magical. It was a great memory of my childhood.
