The "Spicy Crab under the Bridge" restaurant seats about a dozen and
is underneath a flyover in the former red light district of Wanchai on Hong Kong Island
We bought a screwtop bottle of red wine in a convenience store
and ordered a big crab from the very friendly and helpful proprietor

Our crab   Derek anticipates the crab
Our live crab / It's a bit draughty here, Sheila

The crab arrives   Yummy!
A few minutes later the chilli crab is served / How about that for a crab claw!

Sheila and crab claw   Not much left
And this one! / All that remains is the empty shell and a pile of crispy garlic, ginger, chilli & green onions

Bubbly in hotel room   Nightcap
Back at the hotel Sheila had ordered a surprise bottle of bubbly for a nightcap
