Fatty Crabs @ Taman Seputeh

Fatty Crabs is located in Taman Seputeh. This restaurant is not related to the one in Taman Megah at all. All the dishes here are Pork Free And Non-Alcoholic.

 You can order your food online too, and have your order delivered to your home. Alternately, you can also pick up your order personally. Minimum order is RM 80.00 and above. A delivery charge of RM 18.00 is applicable for orders below RM 80.00. For more info and delivery coverage area, do check out the website.

A group of us went there for a gathering last Sunday. It cost us RM50 per pax for the food you see here. Appetizer, four different styles of crab dishes, and seven other dishes. There were four or five sets of these to feed all 18 of us.

Mickey Mouse crab. We were told this is a hot favourite. The cooking style is uniquely theirs. Savoury and super creamy.

All the crab dishes were really good. The meat was firm, fresh and tasty. Franco, the boss, told us the crabs are all imported from Indonesia.

Fried mantou, to wipe the plates clean :D. Personally, I think steamed ones would have been nicer in this case.

This is what the restaurant looks like from the outside. You might even have seen it if you happen to drive/ride on Jalan Syed Putra. To actually go in, however, is a little more complicated, and that's what the Google Map is for. Just study it well and you should be able to find this place. R0017808 copy

Hokkien Noodle @ Kim Lian Kee

There are two Kim Liam Kee outlets in Petaling Street. I have tried the newer one with air-conditioned upstairs. The Hokkien Noodle there was, honestly, quite terrible. So were a few other dishes I tried.

I had a chance to try the one on the left, right opposite the famous Loh Hon Gor herbal drink stall.

Loa Yau Kee Porridge

I was walking from Masjid Jamek LRT station towards Petaling Street that evening when I saw Loa Yau Kee porridge stall outside Soong Kee beef ball noodle restaurant. This stall only opens in the evening! I have only tried the fish porridge in Hon Kee and was eager to compare the one so I ordered myself a bowl of fish porridge.

RM5 for this.

Just put everything into the bowl of piping hot, silky smooth porridge, and let it cook!

My bowl of fish porridge was really good, but would have been much better if there wasn't so much MSG it it. I was basically thirsty for the next two to three hours.

I think I still prefer the porridge at Hon Kee, Petaling Street, and its branch in Lot 10 Hutong.

However, I still want to go back and try the pork intestine porridge at Loa Yau Kee.
