Jackson's birthday at King Crab

King Crab is I think about a 15 minutes walk away from my house. Very visible from the Kelana Jaya LRT station. You can actually take the LRT there because it's only a minute walk down the road to reach King Crab. How many times have I eaten there since it open? Not even once. But I finally tried their dishes when meeting up for Jackson's birthday dinner. First times for Nigel, Allen and Jason too.

Achar and restaurant peanuts as appetizers.

Caramelized coffee pork. I though this will turnout very salty but surprisingly it goes well in my mouth without rice.

Lala in rice wine. This I like. It has got the right amount of rice wine in it and the right amount of ginger that it did not kill off the lala natural sweetness.

On birthday celebrations, it's the Chinese tradition to have a Cheong Sau Mean. I always thought that Cheong Sau means lanky. Mean is noodles. Lanky noodles meaning lanky long life I guessed. But I guessed wrong because Cheong Sau means something like happy and full life?

Deep fried Kai Lan. Had this before some place else. I would definitely order this for folks who don't like vegetables. The deep fried Kai Lan don't even taste like vegetables.

Salted egg sotong. Allen's quick hand took the first piece, and by his expression, I knew it was good stuff.

Butter crab. This is really good. When WMW told me Precious Pea drank the sauce by the bowl I was shocked! But after tasting it, I did it myself.

The deep fried loaf of bread went so well with the butter crab sauce. I took the side of the bread, dug the center out and soak it in my bowl of sauce. Then in to my mouth. Next I scoop the sauce and fill the center, making a cup out of the bread filled with buttery sauce. Then in to my mouth again. So fattening! HAHAHA but I'll do it any time. Good stuff.

Baked salted fish. This looked like the ‘flying fox in the snowy mountain’ I have tried in Mei Chixuan but this fish came with a green dipping sauce. The green chili sauce is made using a mixture of lime, green chili padi and garlic I think. Good thing they have it for sale. I was planning to buy one bottle, but with WMW's and Boo's bargaining skills, and with Allen's 'quick to pay money hand', I ended up with two bottles. It was a buy 10 free 3. The rest bought the remaining 11.

Jackson and his huge slice of cake from the neighbor table. There was another August baby at the next table so when they sang Happy Birthday, we joined in. So sweet of the little girl to give a huge piece of the cake.
