a chinese new year and valentines date with the king

some friends were visiting from manila, we went to hat yai, thailand over the weekend and came back today. after our foodtrips in thailand we were bound for a great chinese new year and valentines feast at restoran king crab. here's what we got. nothing to rant about everything was superb and very much affordable so just feast your eyes.

four veggie belacan - string beans, lima beans, eggplants and winged beans stir fried with belacan a shrimp-chilli paste (17RM)

squid with salted egg, standard squid dish in malaysia. great with their green chilli sauce it was such a perfect pair (RM20)

mantou, fried bread (RM4) perfect accompaniment for certain crab dishes so you can soak it up with the yummy sauces.

hot sour chilli crab (RM61), more like sweet and sour, you know those bottled squid balls sauces, tastes similar to that but a couple of notches higher because it's freshly made and has egg too...similar to singaporean chilli crab but not really.

creamy butter crab (RM61) yes got 2 crab dishes and there were only four of us. this was my favorite, creamy and cheesy and everything nice. the curry leaves gave a nice kick and as the dish cooled down the spiciness starts to settle in making it a super yummy dish.

the place was busy and packed but good thing service was quite fast and i don't think quality was sacrificed. could be a must try when you visit malaysia. just take the kelana jaya line and you'll be led to it, do take note that they have broken time. opens up only during lunch hours and dinner time.
