Our review started with a special top grade French Scallop as our appetizer (RM30.00 per pcs). The juicy and succulent scallop are blanched and served with an in-house made sauce called the Sexy Lady Sauce; a concoction of garlic, chillies and local basil. The firm texture of the scallop was nice to bite in and was well paired with the dipping sauce. This dipping sauce is a great combo with any order of the seafood that is poached or steamed.
For fans of fresh seafood especially Crabs, now you can get to savour it all at Ibrahim’s Fatty Crab Restoran Ampang located at No 18, 1 Avenue, 68000 Ampang Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia.
The main mission of Ibrahim’s Fatty Crab Restaurant Ampang is to serve top quality imported fresh seafood to its patrons. Decking off the restaurants are its array of salt water fish tank where you get to choose the crabs, lobsters, oysters, different varieties of top grade fish like Grouper, Red Snapper, Jade Perch, Sea Bass(Siakap) and more.
One of the top prized Crabs available from Ibrahim’s Fatty Crab Restoran Ampang is the French Crabs which is still swimming in the aquarium. You can also pre-book the King Crab in advance if you plan to savour on this crustacean.
The restaurant has been opened for the past 5 months and is very well lite and cleanliness is of prime importance to create a nice family dining experience.
Next, we had the star of the night which is the French Crab with Mongolian Sauce (RM13.90 Per 100g). The French crab is first fried on its own before stir frying with the Mongolian sauce. According to the Chef, the standard Mongolian sauce uses only Goat Butter but as the taste could be very musky, he replaces it butter and to added in the black pepper to give it a spicy taste to suit the local palate which can appreciate a little spice to the crabs. You can also order your other seafood but use this sauce as the cooking style.
After that, we had the Steam Assam Fish (RM7.00 per 100g). The fish that was chosen was the Red Snapper which was still swimming minutes ago. The fish meat was indeed the right texture and you are able to taste the natural sweetness of the fish. The Assam sauce was just the right balance of sourish and spicy level. We had to call some white rice to eat with this addictive sauce.
To go with your dishes, one can also order the Scallop Sauce fried rice (RM16.00 – Large); a signature dish at Ibrahim’s Fatty Crab Restaurant Ampang. The scallop sauce is in-house made too and garnished with cubes of chicken meat, prawns and squid fried to a perfect Wok Hei, it was a delicious fare by itself. Note; this dish is a little spicy but you can request it to be milder if your tolerant to spicy level is at a minimum.
This is followed by the Chillies Mussel. The New Zealand Green mussels are stir fried with a special chilli paste that is made out of garlic, dried chillies and the dry shrimp to give it a pungent chillies fragrant and aroma.
and for the Vegetables; we had the Broccoli with Sea Asparagus and Pacific Clam. The blanched Broccoli are laid on the plate while the sea asparagus together with pacific clams, mushroom are braised with a special sauce and laid on the plates. This is a new dish which is set to be introduced to the standard menu.
Our last dish of the night is the Salted Eggs Mud Crab (from Rm8.90 per 100g). The commendation of the Chef in producing such a sandy salted eggs coating was superb. Every little inch of the crab is fully coated with the salted eggs which make eating this crab a tasty and delicious affair.
The first thought of Ibrahim’s Fatty Crab Restoran Ampang is really the quality of the fresh seafood. The aftertaste of the natural sweetness and its texture lingers on our taste-buds even as we are writing this blog post.
