    Shell OutPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    When dining at Shell Out, be prepared to get your hands dirty - literally. The concept here is different than most eateries as there are no plates and utensils. The food is typically spread across a custom-made paper which lines their tables and usage of hands to eat is highly encouraged. The crab served here was generously smothered with their signature sauce, Shell Bang - a delicious concoction combining their butter garlic and lemon pepper sauces. The crab was exceptionally fresh and goes nicely with their Shell Bang sauce; it slips down the throat smoothly and any crab lover's palates will be thanking their lucky stars for the experience.

    Famous not only for their huge selection of crabs and types of style, including their famous ‘Crab Dong Fun’. The chilli crab is also worth recommending, as it pairs perfectly well with the fried mantao, which help soak up the luscious gravy. If you ever wish to pair your crab with a side dish, we would recommend the salted egg fried squid and sang har mee. The interior is like any other Chinese restaurant, plastic chairs with tablecloths laid over broken wooden table planks. But who cares when the food is absolutely delicious. 

    Tips

    An additional must try – The Butter Crab.

    Standard seafood restaurant that serves crab along with all the seafood being in a tank.

    Fatty CrabPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    We understand that to many, Fatty Crab may seem overrated or too expected. Nevertheless, we believe that Fatty Crab has upholds a certain standard, regardless of what many might think. They still serve pretty decent crabs, usually huge at a reasonable price. And once it’s tarted up with the sauces you choose, its sure to charm your taste buds. After all, it is located in quite a central area, easily accessible by most. Besides that, Fatty Crab also serves delicious chicken wings that can be smelled from a mile away!

    Tips

    Arrive early if you don’t wanna wait for a table.

    Things to expect

    Everyone talking extremely loudly and a rather slow service.

    Crabs, crabs, crabs. That is what Restoran Chilli's Crab Seafood is all about. They are also one of the first few to incorporate Maggi into their crab dishes, which is unique and weird at the same time. Constantly looking for new recipes and methods of eating, Restoran Chilli's Crab Seafood certainly does take their crab really seriously. Those who are looking for something a little more conventional could go for their black pepper, buttermilk, chilli crab, or even green curry crab. Last but not least, the size of their crabs are fairly huge.

    Restoran Unique Seafood PJ23 is one of the rarer pork-free seafood restaurant. Not only do they offer a wide variety of fresh seafood kept in several tanks, their selection of crabs too were commendable. Huge, sweet and cooked to perfection. Simply select a style of your choice and enjoy the juicy, succulent and plump crabs. Unlike other ambience in the listing, here it’s certainly in a league of its own with rows of huge aquariums as well as classy tables and chairs. So if you’re planning to host a big party or function, this place can never go wrong.

    Restoran Wong Poh is truly a force not to be reckoned with. Occupying 3 shop lots and the carpark space right in front of the restaurant. You'll find the restaurant to be packed almost every night, and there's a good reason behind that. Fresh seafood such as crabs, squid, fish and even clamps are seen on every table, accompanied by lovely vegetables, and a range of fantastic poultry and meats. Even though there's a huge crowd, services are amazingly up to speed, waiting no longer than 20-30 minutes to complete an order per table. To sum things up, Restoran Wong Poh does not only serve amazing food, it actually is a really popular restaurant.
    Tips

    Restoran Hoi Peng has been around for quite some time and they have garnered quite a reputation among the locals. It’s sandwiched between an electrical shop and a car workshop, which is actually rather sad. Regardless, despite the horrible location and unassuming ambience, they still offer one of the best salted baked crab in PJ. Generously served, the crabs are fresh while the salted egg layer is nothing but addictive. Additionally, their fried rice and fried chicken wings are pretty good too. In short, if ambience is not your thing, this spot will have you utterly satisfied. 

    Tips

    Come before 6pm if you do not wish to wait for a table.

    Things to expect

    Fresh crabs served in a boring but functional metal plate – like all other Chinese seafood restaurants.

    Previously located in Kepong, Fei Fei Crab has now extended its business premises to Damansara Jaya, with 2 more under a different name. Still keeping that vibrantly orange outlook, Fei Fei Crab offers an amazing crabs that are not only fresh, but cooked to perfect as well. Depending on the size of the crab, they are usually plump, tender and packed with natural sweetness. One of the most popular gravy would be the salted egg, where its rich, creamy and savoury note worked really well with the crab. On top of that, they also have a pretty fair range of side dishes to compliment!

    Not only has Pantai Seafood Restaurant been around for a really long time, their restaurant too is really huge! It has also been a common place for corporate dinners and meeting, as the space is capable of handling really large crowds.

    Seafood lovers rejoice! House of Seafood in 1 Utama Shopping Center is another great place to enjoy fresh and delicious seafood dishes! This slightly upperclass and fancy restaurant has been a place of celebration for many people on different occasions. And the reason to that is simple - awesome food, great service and a fairly premium pricing (you know, face and all). From their signature black pepper/chilli crab to mantis prawns and lobsters, everything seems to be cooked just right! Their latest Golden Butter Creamy Crab too has been receiving great compliments and popularity.

    Located along the same row as Restoran Wong Poh, Super Crab Aroma Seafood Restaurant certainly is up against a formidable opponent. However, what helped or rather, assisted in the survival of this restaurant are two things - crab porridge and crab with cheese sauce. Crab porridges are really rare here in Malaysia, and their version is certainly one of the best. It comes in a claypot filled with soggy rice grains as well as a generous portion of crab. The dish as a whole is slightly salty, but many seemed to enjoyed it. The cheese sauce variant on the other hand, sparks something different from the conventional kam heong or salted egg. It's rich, creamy, milky and heavily perfumed with curry leaves. Not forgetting the crabs that are sweet, plump and succulent.
