Twenty eight years ago, when my wife was pregnant with our first child, her food cravings were crabs. Back then the nearest and the best place to eat crabs was Hoi Peng (Main) in Old Klang Road and we patronized it at least once a week!
Now my daughter Mindy takes after her !! craving for crabs done in any style.
Tonight, we ordered some of their signature dishes.
Good appetizers-firm Century eggs with young pickled Ginger-taste wonderful, can't just stop eating at one-Rm9/.
Roast Chicken wings-was well marinated -with crispy skin and tender moist meat -Garlic/Ginger/Chili dip for extra flavor-Rm13.80/.
Lala(Clams)-was bathed in sweet superior stock soup with Bird's eye chillies to perk it one notch higher-Lala was fresh, fleshy and briny-Rm20/
House made Toufu-deep fried and filled with finely chopped carrot and fish paste-was firm and smooth with slices of fresh cucumber on the side-Rm15/.
Stir fried crunchy delicate flavored Green Asparagus with hot and spicy Sambal Belacan (Shrimp paste) cooked with medium size prawns which was fresh and succulent-Rm25/.
The Star of the night-2 big size Indonesia crabs (2 1/2 kg) done in their famous sweet, sour and spicy style (Fatty Crabs' too numbing)-the fresh and meaty crabs were cut up into bite pieces but the meat was a bit coarse in texture-the gooey gravy was lapped up clean with toasted bread-Rm110/.
