With the most popular being the Indonesian Curry with Fresh Prawns, Roast Duck that many have claimed to be the best, Pork Ribs and Stir-fried Kangkung.

    Located along the same street as Restoran Wong Poh, Super Crab Aroma Seafood Restaurant is up against a formidable competition. However, the survival of this restaurant lies with 2 of their signature dishes - Crab Porridge and Cheese Crabs. First and foremost, the crab porridge is a nice change of taste from the conventional crab or porridge dishes in Malaysia. It certainly is rare to find them both in the same bowl, but the subtlety and natural sweetness of the dish is palatable. For those that prefer modern-classics, the introduction of cheese to crabs is an excellent choice. Creamy on the outside, plump and sweet on the inside - absolutely lovely!
