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.
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:
Now the mains:
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.
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?
