Restoran Fatty Crab (肥佬蚧海鲜楼)

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Chinese Food

We have long heard about this renowned seafood restaurant for quite some time. A while ago, we decided to visit this place on a Saturday evening for dinner. Located in Taman Megah on the same row as Bakery Joy, we found the restaurant easily.

Interior, Restoran Fatty Crab
Unfortunately on our first visit, we arrived late at 8pm, which was peak dinnertime. The queue was insanely long and we figured that we will come back another time, earlier. So on our second attempt, we came early at 5.30pm and settled comfortably in one of their seats.

Chicken Wings, Restoran Fatty Crab
Fatty Crab has a very limited menu, and they are all listed on their board, which was hung on the wall of the restaurant. They serve chicken wings and satay, both were cooked in the area where the patrons are seated. Pictured above is the chicken wings freshly cooked by them.

Satay Counter, Restoran Fatty Crab
The satay counter was busy as well. It served as a good snack while waiting for the mains to arrive. They offered both chicken and beef satay, but we only had chicken since I do not take beef.

Chicken Wings, Restoran Fatty Crab
Priced at RM2.20 each, we had four pieces of chicken wings to begin our dinner with. Served with chilli dipping sauce, the chicken wings were fresh and good, it was crispy on the outside while still juicy on the inside. We enjoyed snacking on them!

Chicken Satay, Restoran Fatty Crab
The satay on the other hand, was priced at RM0.80 per stick. It was good and decent, but nothing extraordinary. Nevertheless a good snack while waiting for the crabs to be served.

Sweet and Sour Chilli Crab, Restoran Fatty Crab
Despite being busy and packed with countless customers, service was speedy and food was served rather quickly. Fatty Crab serves crabs in two types of cooking methods – Steamed Crab and Sweet and Sour Chilli Crab. The crabs were priced at RM36 per 600 grams and the minimum order was 900 grams per table. We opted for the latter as we prefer spicy food, as most of our readers already know. The crabs were fresh and soft, while the shell was hard to peel, it was worth the hard work as they were delicious! The best part was the sauce, it was sweet and sour mainly, slightly spicy and full of flavour.

Toasted Bread, Restoran Fatty Crab
The sauce was good for dipping with their Toasted Bread. Priced at RM0.30 per piece, we loved eating the bread with the crab sauce, it was so good that we ordered more bread!

Fried Rice, Restoran Fatty Crab
Priced at RM5 for two, we also had their Fried Rice. Their fried rice was light and fluffy, eaten with the seafood crab sauce, it was excellent!

Overall, we had a pleasant dining experience in Fatty Crab. The food was good and we will go back for more! However, it will be safer to either go earlier or make a reservation to avoid the queue.

Is this a chain around the city? Nearly a decade ago before I moved to Malaysia expats were telling me this was one of their fav places. I STILL haven’t visited.

Simple Person, hmm, not too sure whether they accept reservation as well. If then it’ll be better to go early to avoid the crowd.

Sean, haha, it’s alright, you’re still here and do visit them when you have the chance!

The Yum List, we’re not entirely sure but we don’t think it’s a chain. Haha, it is quite a good place for seafood and crabs, do give it a try! =)

Although freelancing can become a secure source of income, it
is a business that will take time to build, so an emphasis on determination, organization and persistence
is the foundation of a successful freelancing career.

What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of precious knowledge
concerning unexpected emotions.

Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks
fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!
