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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
