Malaysian are very fond of eating crabs, many will travel far and wide in search of the best crab dishes to taste. Recently they have been a raving of special crab dishes in Puchong. We got to try out Crab B Restaurant Puchong Jaya located at 85, Jalan Kenari 20, Bandar Puchong Jaya, 47100 Puchong, Selangor, Malaysia to explore on this.
For folks in another part of town, frets not as there is another outlet in Kepong which is where it all started i.e. Fei Fei Crab Seafood Restaurant Kepong KL. While for folks in Cheras can go to the Crab Generation at Taman Len Sen, Cheras to enjoy more than 12 different type of cooking style for your crabs.
There is no fancy ambience or decor to welcome you to Crab B Restaurant Puchong Jaya just a simple setup but in the evening, you can dine al-fresco outside the restaurant too.
Crab B Restaurant Puchong Jaya has many crab recipe which is concocted by its owner’s and here we get to try 2 of his latest creation which the first is the Milky Salted Egg Yolk Butter Crab (set of 2 – RM98.00 for XL size); in Cantonese (Ham Sap Hai) – a very cheeky name if you know your Cantonese well. Loves the taste of the salted eggs and the slight spicy curry taste from the use of the dried chillies and curry leaves . Above all the freshness of the crab was a real deal.
The next one is a more unique which is called the Milo Butter Sauce Crab (set of 2 – RM98.00 for XL size). This has a strong aroma of Milo when it arrives at the table. On tasting, you will be able to taste the sweet Milo with a slight hint of buttery taste which was added to cook this dish. You can also order the special XXXL size crab which is at RM153.00 for 2 crabs.
Our last Crab dish is the Steamed Crab with Eggs (set of 2 – RM98.00 for XL size) – For me this is the best way to enjoy a fresh crab, no sauce, just plain natural sweetness from the crab meat. Simple steamed eggs at the bottom of the dish and topped with sprinkles of Chinese wine to give it a nice aroma and flavour. From the Crab B Restaurant Puchong menu; you can find that they do offer a few other crab species for you to choose from; one notable one is the live French Crab.
Besides serving delicious Crab dishes, Crab B Restaurant Puchong Jaya also offers diners with a la carte seafood dishes that you can order which can go with rice. The first is the Lala Spinach Soup (RM25.00) The Lala is of the meaty version while the additional spinach as a greens’ to a seafood gives the broth a strong slightly spicy flavour which goes well with a bowl of rice.
The second dish is the Deep Fried Fish With Special Home Made Sauce (market price and also depends on the type of fish). Here we had a Red Snapper (you can choose to have a Grouper, Senangin or even a Siakap to be cooked in this style) which was deep fried to a crunchy texture on the outside while the inside white meat were firm and matched to the sauce which is made out of chillies padi, dry prawns, fermented bean paste and garlic were another dishes that we savoured with the white rice.
The third seafood dish from the menu is the Thai Tom Yam Crayfish (Hae Go or the Lai Liu Har) (RM20.00). Covered with the Tom Yam flavoured batter and fried to a crisp and served with a dipping sauce.
Next is the Japanese Style Deep Fried Pork Ribs on a Mayo Sesame dressing (RM20.00). We like the taste of the sauce which has a tinge of spicy taste.
The final dish to goes with our rice is the Steam Tofu With Minced Pork and Chillies Sambal Petai (RM15.00). We have eaten many Steam Tofu with Minced Pork, but this dish really takes it to the next level and it was just great eaten with the white rice for those that loves the taste of the Petai.
