    Restoran Xing HengNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    From a first glance, Restoran Xing Heng may not be that eye appealing due to its rustic looking signboard. But nevertheless, this indicates that this restaurant has somewhat been around for a while. As seen on the signboard, crab is one of the main highlights here. If you’re indecisive on which taste to choose from, go for the Salted Egg Crab. This light creamy looking crab tasted just about right and it leaves you with a mellow mouthfeel on every bite! Otherwise, Kam Heong Crab here is equally tasty too!

    Tips

    Set meals for two persons and above are available on weekdays.

    Things to expect

    A simple Chinese restaurant. Ample parking bays..

    Best with

    Bert's GardenPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    In searching for a great romantic ambience and a perfect grilled of fresh seafood, Bert’s Garden could be the one. While this place is famed for nasi lemak, the regulars here usually place an order for the chef recommended Black Pepper Crab too. The crab meat itself is sufficiently moist, with an extremely thick black peppery sauce, much more like a paste, and makes a delicious accompaniment even with just a portion of white rice!

    Tips

    Crab dishes are based on seasonal price.

    Things to expect

    A restaurant with a serene atmosphere by a seaside view.

    Best with

    Grilled Giant Prawns with Butter and Garlic.
