give me my crab

I frequent this place 3 times in 6 weeks. Give me a messy dining table, dirty hands and full load of crabs, I’ll be a happy man.

I’m talking about this fatty crab restaurant in Taman Megah, PJ.  IMG_1165

As usual, from far you’ll spot a crowd sweating while waiting to get a table. There is no first come first basis system, the two experienced lady sort the guess thru the headcounts.

From personal experience, always go there in groups of maximum 4 per table. It’s easier to get a table when you are less than 4 people, cause they have lots of 4-seater tables than bigger ones. Second rule is to maintain regular eye contact with the two aunties so they won’t forget you’re standing in front of the shop waiting and lastly, make sure they take your order before you’re seated, so the food would pop out as soon as you get a table.

So, what do you order when you go to fatty crab:

1. Deep fried chicken wings; this is usually served fast and goes perfectly well as an appetizer. IMG_1104

Fried rice;  how can someone not order our staple food. The fried rice with prawns, carrots, eggs and french beans. All fried to perfection with suffice ‘wok hei’IMG_1095

Now the mains:

Sweet sour chilly crab. No words to describe this. I’ll licking my fingers in front of hundreds of people for this dish. What etiquette?IMG_1101

Look at them, it just scream lick me lick me, hit me with the hammer and take my meat. AAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaIMG_1099

Besides that, I also like this soupy Teochew steamed fish. With generous amount of salted vegetable, I find myself keep drinking the gravy for it’s tangy flavour. A good blend of  plum, salted vegetable, tomatoes and fresh essence from the fish.IMG_1106

Well, having 3 times in 6 weeks can be alarming since i never knew my cholesterol level and etc. But hey, anyone want to meet there in the coming Sunday?
