The Boiling Crab

FOR TONIGHT'S DINNER WE WENT TO THE BOILING CRAB... A restaurant we have been talking about for more than a month now and finally got to go this evening...
Just fifteen minutes away from our house...
We thought we were the early birds... It was only around 5pm...


But the crowd was already there ... Waiting to be seated...
Getting prepared for the food...the table is laid with a white non greasy paper.. and I was told that we were to put the food on top of the table itself ...
Steamed rice...
Fresh fried calamari
Sweet Potatoes is our favourite..
Our food arrived within minutes..
Crayfish...
Fresh prawns ....
There are no plates served.. Everything is eaten and laid just like that on the table.. I don't fancy seeing the dishes served in plastic bags... Don't really understand why they are served like this, I guess it is kind of special to them.. No complaints about the food though, the seafood are very fresh and the total cost came to $41... Well, I guess once is good enough for me :)

  1. I like the sweet potato fries.. Been seeing a lot of it in Food Network.. Many cooks bake sweet potato fries instead of potato fries already..

  3. Good for seafood lovers this place. For me, I always avoid crab because so troublesome to peel. And if prawns come with shell, I also refuse to eat hah...hah...So if I come here, I only eat the Fried Calamari and Sweet Potatoes! So rugi one.

  6. hmmm.....something like the Banana leaf rice kot...only minus the banana leaf

    I wonder why they used plastic to serve the food. I thought over there they are very environmentally friendly.

  8. Crayfish? I thought you're in Sacramento? Have you moved to Louisiana??

    I thought they served in plastic bags like that in those southern states after they got hit by the hurricanes. Wonder why it becomes standard serving method now >.<

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
