Written by Updated ago

Crabs are undeniably the celebrity of the ocean, and we Malaysians are always on the prowl to pleasure our tastes buds with the finest. It just ramps up a rhapsody of its own, crackling into the shell to gather the juicy flesh and scouring each and every brook of the crab, yearning not to miss even a smattering of goodness, resulting in a finger-licking experience that imprints in your mind. Being embroidered by the Straits of Johor, Johor Bahru never lacks rave-worthy seafood, especially with eateries below take pride with a scrumptious range of crabs that bound to rock your senses.

    Burrowed between stalls in Gerai Tepian Tebrau is this crowd-rousing stall that dishes out seafood spread that never fails to wow your palate.  Just pick your crab which rests on a bed of ice in front the stall itself and choose your flavours, be it salted egg, black pepper or the most revered chili version, everything enchants a mouthful of a savoury ride. The chili concoction just snuggly wraps onto the hunks of crab, the lip-smacking combination that leaves you wanting more.

    Among the pillars of authentic seafood feast, that hits patrons with a pinnacle of pleasure. It’s constantly jam-packed with clienteles, gormandising never-ending seafood spree where their crab is not to be missed. Freshly caught daily, their salted egg version tops the chart. It’s a drool-inducing platter where chunks of crabs are generously glazed with rich yolk gratification.  The flesh soaks up all the rich essence and flavours that end with a finger-licking good encounter.

    Capturing hearts of seafood lovers for decades, this restaurant never fails to churn out the best of the ocean with panache.  It’s usually chock-full as the sun gradually dips towards the horizon, which permits a picturesque view, on the stilted wooden dining space. Among the trump cards on the extensive menu are their crabs, fresh and hearty pieces lure to be ladled with chili, black pepper or curry flavours. The gravy just hits your palate with rich spices, complementing the succulent flesh within. Served with spongy buns, mop the platter clean.

    Grand Bayview Seafood Restaurant

    You know you’re heading for a seafood gastronomy ride as you’re welcomed by an imposing lobster statue at the façade of the restaurant. With a sitting capacity of 1,600, there’s no surprise the dining space is habitually filled with hordes of customers. With a breathtaking view of Straits of Johor and Singapore, the gentle lull of ocean and winds just sets the mood straightaway. However, once their signature Chili Crab lands on your table, you’ll forget the surrounding environment till the final dot of gravy and last pinch of flesh. The exemplary platter is best shared, yet think twice when you take the first mouthful.

    This modest restaurant sparks a unique take on crab, crafted for those you would prefer chomping rather than crackling the crab and ensure hands are clean. Named as crab ball soup, it appears like a crab islet drenched in pristine broth and spattered with chopped herbs. Just slither through the inevitable crab meat and slurp the soup along, which is vastly infused with crab flavours.

    This is a realm of seafood galore, the cavernous space is filled with a stretch of seven seafood restaurants that gets you ambivalent.

The jewel in the crown here is the Alaskan king crab which opulently dressed with treacly and spicy gravy and a handful of herbs that wakes up your senses straightaway. Other variations include black pepper and salted egg. A mound of steamed white rice is the best bit to take advantage of the bounteous amount of sauce and toothsome fleshes.

    Ambiance isn't something that they are gonna brag about, nor are you when you bring a hungry date. What you can say however, is the fact that they serve awesome seafood dishes. One that caters to the mass majority of seafood lovers. From prawns to fish, clams to crabs, they have it all. One of their best seller would be the salted egg yolk crab - packed full of flavour and juicy as hell!
