  • Did look a lot better when i first got there initially so it's been sitting on a bed but still look at

  • this it still got like a ton of juice

  • they're so

  • ridiculously flavorful and smoky

  • Usually, when it comes to duck a lot of times the flavor is mainly on the skin

  • Not this baby it's on the skin it's on the meat it's probably even in the bones those are the other

  • Other type of duck i was sitting in some kind of broth

  • That was good not as good as the first stop so come here get that first duck

  • Now let's try some of these dishes i mean i mean i aim this ram?

  • because

  • people are treating them, like celebrities i

  • think if bollywood stars i mean of all us -

  • We can't get a picture later

  • All right anyway back to my lamb

  • There's a huge peppery flavor on this lamb

  • Sauce is off the hook you know, what mouth stability is going out the window. Right now

  • typical singapore chilli crab looks like, but i

  • Know this is not in our vintage singapore chilli crab?

  • But it's a pretty, good spicy, fries still feeling. Good let's keep going, whenever you're at

  • A buffet and you, want to take a, break from eating you can, do it by eating let, me explain

  • You, get some crab

  • You, get some shrimp and you get some lobster at least for me that's taking a break

  • and here's some soft stuff you can dip it in and get some chutney i

  • Don't know, what this is but?

  • For someone the side of my plate

  • What a feast i don't know?

  • How, this works but whenever i eat seafood?

  • Whether that's crab or prawns or lobsters i skip more hungry afterwards i don't know. If that's because i'm getting a workout by

  • by taking the shells off these things i love the head of a product that's the good stuff right there i

  • Don't think there's really, any spices or seasoning on this at all you

  • Could just you didn't like that and just enjoy all the sweetness those prawn has for you or maybe a little mustard that's good

  • Oh, that's the right stuff right there ashley i had no idea they eat this soft-shell crab chef

  • We asked them to teach me so, what do you do?

  • So you take up the kills yep

  • there it is

  • Whoo this is my first time actually eating a. Soft-shell crab, like like as a, whole crap i never knew

  • Because usually you know it's in a dish we're saying a sandwich or something, well. Oh thank you thank you

  • whoa

  • Eating this crab meat is almost like chewing on a piece of air

  • So ridiculously gentle it's just creamy you, don't need to chew, this at all

  • It's dissipated the meat texture like i said it's borderline creamy slightly sweet

  • mmm

  • Wow no wonder you typically use this with a show on first of all there's not that much meaning secondly if you take

  • The show, off the me might just dissolve all right

  • Now that i have taken, my break
