Under the Bridge Spicy Crab is a restaurant in Hong Kong that specializes in serving spicy/garlic crab (and it is located under a bridge, hence the name). Their speciality dish is the crab pictured above.
At Under the Bridge, you choose what weight of crab you want, as well as what spice you want. I cannot remember exactly what the weight options are, but I usually get the middle weight level. As for spice, it is probably best to stick with a mild spice level unless you really enjoy hot dishes, as even their base spice levels are pretty spicy.
I think that Under the Bridge’s Spicy Crab is a great dish, but I also do think it is a bit overpriced. Since it is a whole crab, the price ranges from about $60-100, so it is not going to be a cheap meal. This is just for the crab alone, and it does not include the price of side dishes like fried rice, noodles, vegetables, etc.
One cool thing you can see if you go to Under the Bridge Spicy Crab is their cook who solely focuses on frying garlic. The cook who is in charge of this has a mountain of fried garlic in front of them, as they use so much garlic for each crab (it tastes really good if you scoop the garlic and oil onto fried rice!).
While Under the Bridge has a bunch of other seafood dishes, I would recommend getting the spicy/garlic crab if it is your first time. It is a unique dish that you should definitely try once if you are a crab fan visiting Hong Kong!

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
