Last night, we all went "crabby" to celebrate my friend's birthday. Excellent choice which came highly recommended by my friend, MY who is the crab specialist. She ordered all the dishes hence I'm totally clueless about what they are all and their prices. It was a big affair as my friend's parents also came along to celebrate their daughter's birthday plus MY brought her two adorable kids.
We ordered two crab varieties - Thai barbeque and salted egg yolk. The barbeque variety got everyone's thumbs up as the crabmeat was sweet and fresh tasting. You don't really need the Thai sauce to complement it as it's perfect on it's own.
Malaysians love crabs cooked in different styles whether it's sweet black tasting Marmite, spicy and fragrant Kum Heong or with lots of Sweet and Sour sauce. This variety of crabs that is fried with salted egg yolk was pretty good too. I liked how the salted egg yolks coated the crabs. However the taste doesn't really get absorbed into the crab meat as it's only on the outside part.
My friend also ordered grilled lamb shoulder which was tender. Since there was no mint sauce, I used the Thai sauce with green chillies and it was a great combination.
For the small and big kids in all of us, we had fried chicken with crispy skin and meatballs. This was served with a small portion of sliced century eggs and ginger.
We had two vegetable dishes - this yummy sambal fried four angle beans and tender baby french beans. Didn't manage to snap the french beans as my hands were all full of crab shells.
Even after our meal of crabs were finished off with a plate of refreshing and healthy fruit, we were already planning our next crab meal. The damage for the night was RM256 for 9 of us including two kids. Not sure if this is expensive but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. By the way, if you love hairy crabs, tis' the season now. The restaurant serves them at RM38 per kg.

( You can't miss the huge signboard of crab if you travel down the LDP from Puchong towards Damansara. It's right across the Kelana Jaya LRT Station. The owner of this restaurant also owns Pathlab and Marco's Pizza on the same row of shophouses.)
