This is the Signature Basil Black Pepper Crab served at Spicy Thai - Thai Cafe at 115 Aljunied Avenue 2.  

Core Ingredients - Founder Ron Poh shares that he uses live fresh Sri Lanka Crab (from supplier Sri Lanka Marine Pte Ltd who ships about 15 crabs daily to Spicy Thai - Thai Cafe), black pepper, basil. Founder Ron Poh prices his Sri Lankan crab (about 600 to 650 gm per crab) at average rate of about S$35 per crab. 
How it is prepared - Typically this dish is prepared by stir frying the basil, black peppercorns & crab together for about 15 minutes till the crabs are fully infused with the flavor & aromas of the black pepper corns & the basil & is deemed cooked. 

Notice that the Black pepper crab served here are not as starchy as those served in other restaurants - Chef Moonpeng Meedee does not use much oil in this recipe because he uses herb basil whose flavor might be lost if too much oil is used.
