Talking about this event, Munidasa said, “I am very excited to introduce the delicacies we serve at Ministry of Crab to the UAE with this pop-up at Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi.”

The menu kicks off with a sharing plate of a creamy Crab Liver Pâté, followed by the rich Baked Crab, likened by many to a Crab Risotto. A winning dish is Garlic Chilli Prawn that Chef Dharshan cooks in Italian olive oil, Japanese soy sauce, garlic and chilli flakes in a style that is unique to Ministry of Crab. Ideal for two to share, the much-loved Pepper Crab celebrates two ingredients endemic to Sri Lanka, where the freshness of the crab is fused with the heat of hand-crushed peppercorns, whole peppercorns and pepper stock.
