Food Review: Cajun on Wheels- Halal Seafood Buckets at Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre
Catch Safiah and Zie munching their way through buckets of Cajun-style seafood at Cajun on Wheels.
Cajun on Wheels Express is famous for their insanely-sized servings of seafood comprising of lobsters, crayfish, chilli crabs and many more from the big blue. We knocked, cracked and crunched our way through four delicious dishes so that you could watch and decide on whether you should join in on the fun.
Cajun on Wheels has branches at Plaza Singapura and Suntec’s Pasarbella. However their Express outlet comes at Express prices – they’re even cheaper! Hang out at Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre, the most hipster hawker centre in Singapore yet, and relax with a bucket of seafood.
We tried four dishes in total.
Dish 1 : Crawsterclams Bucket in Cheesy Soil Sauce
Crayfish + lobster + clams = Crawsterclams!!
Add a few extra ingredients like sliced, boiled potatoes and corn all drenched in a sauce of your choice, and you’ll get the delectable Crawsterclams Bucket. They are very generous with the servings, so bring along at least two of your closest buddies to try this dish (or should I say bucket) out.
The Soil actually comes from crushed Oreo.
When it comes to actually eating the shellfish, we recommend you to be extra careful as even Saf had seafood flying to her forehead while trying to extract flesh from the crayfish!
Don’t be shocked by the soil toppings on top of the mountain of seafood though; it’s not actually soil…;)
Price of deliciousness : $59
Dish 2 : Oh Crab Bucket
The next bucket on the list takes the classic crab and turns it into something better by spicing it up with that cajun heat!
Spicy food lovers will adore this as the heat really penetrates through the shell and within it, where the flesh can be found.
Do use the hammer they provide as they will definitely come in handy when you have to break open the hard shell.
It’s a bucket that is not for the faint of heart, so make sure to drink plenty of water between bites!
Price of deliciousness : $42
Dish 3 : Giant Squid Platter
The giant squid platter comes with rice pilaf, corn, a fried egg and a sauce of your choice. Safiya and Zie chose the chilli crab sauce, which was a brave idea!
Despite the incredible heat, the girls were able to devour the whole dish, saying that the giant squid platter was crispy, while the rice pilaf was very flavourful.
To prove just how huge the squid was, you could see it’s as big as Zie’s head below!
Price of deliciousness: $11.50
Dish 4 : Loaded Fries in Egg Yolk Sauce
Thick fries covered in egg yolk sauce AND chilli padi, the girls really liked the finger-lickin’ sauce that was generously poured over the dish. The perfect starter or add-on to any meal you want.
However, do watch out for the chilli padi slices as they are, as quoted by Zie, “Serious ah!”
