The Crabs Are Too Heavy For My Pocket!

I have put off this post for quite some time already... mainly because it is a "heavy" post because it weighs nearly 2kg! Yes, the crabs weighed that much and cost super-much too.. you won't believe it!

Okay, the five of us went for a meal in The Crabs House in Ipoh Garden South... before we went, I called up to book a table... and to order the following dishes as well...
Two pieces of Seremban Grilled Crabs...
grilled with honey.... or maybe some special sweet sauce...
and we must lick on the shell to get the taste out of it...
the claws are big no doubt...
but I feel the flesh is a bit too dry....
we ordered this too.. claypot spinach with egg...
and their signature dish.. 
steamed hidden chicken  with gingko nuts...
my friends love this dish.. 
something special... 
with the chicken essence, pepper and gingko nuts, 
the soup is indeed "tantalizing"
but when the bill came, it was "shocking!"
For only three dishes, we had to fork out 
After minus-ing the above, the crabs came to  ????
Isn't that Terrifying? 
Well, not that I won't go back again...
I still would but I definitely will not order 
the Heavy Weight again!


  1. Hmmm...was it the crabs that was expensive? or the special chicken with gingko?

  2. Could be the crab. My family had once ordered ONE spider crab at Unique Seafood. Just the crab itself cost nearly RM500!

  3. missy: heavy weight crabs.. :)

    pam: oh gosh!! enough for the whole family?

  4. Crabs are expensive...if i want to have crabs, i would go to sitiawan area. cheaper there

  5. It is certainly a big crab.


  6. 2 kg crab...over RM100 already, plus the chicken and everything else - ok lah...not too expensive. Too bad the crab meat's dry though. Overcooked?

  7. Hello! Nice to meet you too, thanks so much for dropping by at my blog. :)

  8. andrew: u mean Kampong Koh? so long i never been there..

    filip: big and heavy too!

    stp: maybe grilling is like that?

    sharon: yeah.. but not giant crabs! :)

    babysumo: anytime! :)

  9. Wow, babe! The price is very attractive!

  10. Hahahahah,crabs have never never been my fav dish,no matter how they are cooked but in the contrary my missus loves it so much...

    The reason I no like,simply because very the expensive and a tedious job to"kopek" and afte kopeking,the flesh is left a little to savor,,,

    call me a miser but I think I rather have Sahsimi for that matter,,,

  11. The Crabs House is really selling expensive crabs eh! Sepatang crabs are cheaper, Claire.

  12. I grew up in Kampong Koh man!!! All my school days I was there eating crabs like nobody's business. Now... No more :(

  13. Ouch..i am feeling your pocket is burning..but is okay la. Tummy is happy at the end.hehehheh

  14. though i preferred chicken chop for easier eating i think that chicken dish was indeed mouth watering

  15. rose: i agree.. :)

    eugene: come i seem to like a lot of food! :)

    yan: that gives me a reason to go there again, right? :)

  16. OMGourd RM80 per kg for the crabs? Even KL seafood restos don't charge such high price! :S

  17. wah... is about the KL pricing jor... but yummy wor.. :D

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
