Starry Kitchen bills itself as America's most famous underground restaurant, meaning that its Singaporean Chili Crab might very well be the most popular underground menu option in the entire country. The succulent dish is indeed a successful one from tenured the history of the restaurant, and it should entice even the most staid of diners to dig in and enjoy.

Starry Kitchen itself began as an underground restaurant, meaning that it hosted speakeasy-style dining events at locations ranging from the owners' apartment to all sorts of sordid spaces. After threats from the health inspector, the restaurant decided to take its fare mainstream, opening up a brick-and-mortar location in Los Angeles.

The Singaporean Chili Crab is covered in a spicy chili sauce flavored with Hunt's ketchup. Though ketchup might seem blasphemous in fine North American cuisine, it is known as a "secret weapon" in Asian cuisine (according to Starry Night's write-up in the LA Times.)
