Causeway Bay Spicy Crab @ Desa Sri Hartamas

Typhoon Shelter Crab 避风塘辣蟹 is something we can only see from TVB dramas or HK movies; we can only drool in front of the TV...

or we can head to Causeway Bay for it?!

but... Causeway Bay is located in Hong Kong...  :(

***

Good news is that right now, we can find Causeway Bay Spicy Crab 铜锣湾辣蟹莊 here in Desa Sri Hartamas. Hooray...

causeway bay

Glad that Causeway Bay Spicy Crab 铜锣湾辣蟹莊 (from HK) has chosen to open its door in KL. Thanks to Soo Ting and Eric for a wonderful lunch over. It was a great dining experience at Causeway Bay Spicy Crab. We got to try a few lip smacking dishes as well as the famous crab dishes from HK.

Hide n' Seek; I'm hidden, look for me

Typhoon Shelter "Bei Fung Thong" Crab
Authentic HK Garlic & Chili Crab 正宗避风塘辣蟹 (RM 68)
The crabs hidden in lots of deep fried garlic that blended well with the scallion and red chilies. You can always opt for the degree of spiciness you prefer - mild, moderate, spicy or very spicy. We had the medium spiciness for our crab. huuuulala, it was really fragrantly hot and spicy!

Baked Crab with Salted Egg Yolk 流沙黄金蟹 (RM 68)
A different version of baked crab with salted egg yolk as compared to what we used to have (the wetter salted egg yolk version). This one from Causeway Bay Spicy Crab is loaded with crunchy salted egg yolk globules. I love munching the rice bubble-liked globules that infufsed with strong salted egg yolk taste.

Deep Fried Prawns with Chili, Salt & Pepper 避风塘明虾 (RM 42)
The prawns were deep fried into golden brown and coated with imported tasty, chili powder, salt and pepper. The best thing is, no more troubles on peeling off the shell. You can have all straight including the prawns' head!

Steamed Fresh Water Prawns with Egg White & Rice Wine (RM 90)

An off-menu dish, the prawns were fresh, infused with strong aromatic rice wine. Do remember to have it when it's piping hot.

Homemade Beancurd 海棠翡翠豆腐 (RM 30)
Beancurd stuffed with lots of mushrooms and prawns. The texture of the beancurd was rather compact. It would be better if it is smoother and fluffier.

Steamed Paddy Frog with Lotus Leaf 荷香古法蒸田鸡 (RM 35)

DSC_3951


Honey Garlic Fried Pork Ribs 蜜饯蒜香骨 (RM 28)
Another dish I love most after the crab! Do you know that this is an award winning dish?!

DSC_3931

Stewed Cod Fish with Beancurd Strips 鲜枝竹鳕鱼 (RM40)
Well-flavoured gravy that goes best with a bowl of white rice. 

DSC_3973

Vege with Salted & Preserved Egg 金银蛋上汤浸时菜(RM 18)

DSC_4012

Herbal Jelly to end out meal. It was a throat soothing one and tasted quite similar to those we could get from the famous 'liong cha pou' (Herbal Tea Shop)

Overall, i do love the food as well as the great ambiance here. The authentic spicy crab from HK is a must-dish from here. 

and now you know where to get the famous HK Spicy Crab in Malaysia....

and do make a reservation before heading here to avoid disappointment :)
