Live wild crabs have been carefully selected to be the star of this dish. These crabs are fleshy and well-grown, each weighing a minimum of 12 liang (around 450g), and have been tested for veterinary drugs and heavy metal residues, making them a safe and hearty meal to be enjoyed. The succulent and sweet crab meat is placed on the aromatic rice cake that has been stir-fried with log mushrooms, chestnuts, and sun-dried shrimps from Penghu. Then, the dish is steamed, during which the glutinous rice soaks up the savory goodness of the juicy crab meat. The mouth-watering rice cake and rich-tasting crab meat are then brought together with various seafood delicacies such as braised abalone, mussels from Matsu, salted squid, clams with garlic, and salmon roe from Japan. The dish is a seafood carnival starring the best seafood that Taiwan has to offer.
A classic dish of the Penglai Pavilion restaurant in the 1930s, the recipe for this stew has been imparted to younger chefs by none other than Chef Huang De-Hsing, who helmed the kitchen of Penglai Pavilion.

As the essences of these delicacies are released into the stew, a blended symphony of sweetness and aroma is created. This dish is especially perfect for summer due to its refreshing and nourishing qualities.
