    If you are looking for something different, The Forum is ready to serve you with some soft shell crabs. Soft-shell crab is a culinary term for crabs which have recently molted their old exoskeleton and are still soft. This implies that nearly the whole crab can be eaten, as opposed to shelling it to reach the meat. Eating crab has become so much easier now. Fresh from Pahang, the soft shell crabs here are simply fresh and juicy in every bite. The idea is to appreciate the local seafood goods. Served with garden-fresh shreds of carrots and rockets, this recommended platter might be simple but enough to satisfy your grumbling tummy. Perfect as a starter or light meal, the crabs are also served alongside wasabi mayo dip. Yummy!

    Tips

    Good for groups and parties.

    Things to expect

    A clean, minimalist and spacious restaurant. Attentive servers.

    Ishin Japanese DiningPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Tempura Moriawase is the signature tempura platter at Ishin Japanese Dining. Served thoughtfully with grated radish and lemon slice, the dish consists of lightly battered soft shell crab and aubergine tempura. The aubergine is coated with tempura and fried under high heat that leads to a crunchy outside but still with a soft inside. The contrasting texture is very pleasant to the tongue. The snow crab tempura is the star of the show as well as it should be. The shell of the crab is cracked beforehand leaving just the flesh; that are chewy with just a hint of the seafood sweetness.

    Tips

    The tempura on the soft shell crab may be a bit sharp so be careful not to hurt yourself.

    Things to expect

    The portion is only big enough to share in a small group of 2-3 people.

    Best with

    As a complemented side to the cold Sakura Soba.

    Tsubohachi Hokkaido IzakayaNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    The snow crab dishes served at Tsubohachi cover a wide spectrum of dishes. There’s the snow crab nabe that tops the bowl with snow crabs goodness together with a slew of vegetables. Every hot spoonful of this dish is bursting with fresh crab essence, and the mushrooms with the tofu provide much needed texture. Then there’s broiled snow crab that’s gleaming with freshness on the plate. The crab shells are broken down so well that it’s effortless to pull the meat off of it. The crab meat is incredibly succulent and flavourful, and the lemon helps to add a sour dimension to the dish.

    Tips

    Use the thin silver spoons dedicated for scooping crab meat from the shells.

    Things to expect

    The crabs are easier to break and eat than most other crabs.

    Best with

    Salad and chawanmushi are great additions to the crab feast.

    Restoran Tak Fok Hong Kong Seafood RestaurantNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Restoran Tak Fok Seafood is located in one of the shadiest place in Kepong, but is without a doubt, one of the most popular place to enjoy crabs. Their restaurant may be small, but the choices of crabs are certainly the opposite. Choose from a variety of flavours and style, with the butter sauce, cream cheese sauce and salted egg being the most popular. The crabs are always alive before serving as to preserve its freshness. For optimal gratification, do grace up the table with series of seafood dishes that are equally good. Do add their chilli condiment into the mix for a dose of heat. 

    Tips

    Reservations recommended.

    Things to expect

    A rather small place with awesome seafood.
