Last week, we (Precious Pea, WMW, Jackson Kah, Tummythoz and Tankiasu) did quite a bit of feasting at King Crab. It seems this place now has it's little fan club as quite a few floggers have dined here and liked the food. The president of the fan club of King Crab has to be Precious Pea as she is a devout fan of the place chalking up the most visits compared to all of us. She did the ordering hence I'm kinda at a loss on the names of some of the dishes. This particular dish was made with pomfret fish hence it was quite pricey (RM50++). Each roll was filled with fish meat, chinese mushroom and vegetables. Drizzled with a creamy sauce and sprinkled with chopped red chilies and green spring onions, it was a pretty good dish. It's served with the fried pomfret that has been deboned. The fried fish is edible especially if you're the type who love crunching on deep fried fish bones or the fish head.
Another dish which I have no idea what the name is but it looked like prawns in a sweetish black sauce kinda like har lok. Prawns weren't very big but the meat was fresh and firm.
Before I came to the restaurant, my friend had SMSed me and told me a must order is their salted egg yolk sotong. I admit this was really good - crunchy sotong with the salted egg yolk sauce. Not too much as it was a mere coating which is a great idea hence it was not too salty.
For vegetables, we had kailan served two ways - the stalks fried in garlic while the leaves are shredded and deep fried. It looks and tastes like seaweed and is delicious with the tiny deep fried ikan bilis. We also ordered the sticky Guiness Stout Pork Ribs (RM15++) which I had featured before. It was also everyone's favourite as the pork ribs were coated in that sweet sticky sauce. Tankiasu even ordered a portion to take home to his parents. I hope they enjoyed it as much as we did.
We had two orders of the must have with our butter crabs - the mantou with it's ultra crispy skin. Really great with that buttery sauce especially when you pour it on or just dip it in.
Then it was the butter crabs which was what we were all waiting for. Jackson was kind enough to be my hand model this time round. Look at that yummy crab claw waiting to be eaten. It was excellent stuff and even though Jackson was coughing, he stopped when he was enjoying the crab and the creamy sauce.
We even had dessert - durian tiramisu courtesy of Fatboybakes. He couldn't join us for dinner but was so sweet to bring us dessert (thanks so much FBB!). With a brandied sponge layer and a wicked tasting durian mascarpone cream topped with a chocolate layer, it was utterly delectable. Even though we were all full to the brim from dinner, most of us had seconds. Note how the durian tiramisu in the picture above was getting all the food paparazzi focusing on it.
It was such a satisfying meal and so reasonably priced as we paid RM38 per person for that wonderful meal. I guess now we have a fan club, we should regularly hold meetings here to sample the food. I'll let the president to decide on the meet up schedule but I do vote for monthly meetings plus a lunch date to sample their new Hong Kong dim sum menu.
