    Is this the one facing the Restoran Yuen Steamboat?

    If it is, I was there this evening. The crab is now RM18+ per kg.

    Few years back, I had tried this outlet, but was disgusted with the houseflies that infested the place. After so long, when I was there again today (on the recommendation of the thread), the flies are still there, although very much less.

    Three of us went and the bill was RM74.20, inclusive of one kg of crab. Pricewise is okay. If only they could do something about the flies...

    It was quite good the last time I went there. Try the House Speciality. The Cheese Crab also not bad. A bit on the pricier side though. Exactly how much $/kg cannot remember. But I heard that it changed owner already. So dunno if the taste still the same. Last time I went there was about a year ago.

    A friend of mine used to rave how good this is until I went to try. I find it so so only. Nothing to shout about.

    Devil's crab is quite good, for me anyway. I usually go for the nyonya or drunken crab plus the dancing fried rice. Price is expensive at about RM40 per kg. I don't think there is a change of owner, still saw him there before the CNY (unless it happened very recently)

    Besides the Crab Restaurant in Sunway Mentari, is there any other Crab restaurant around USJ/Taipan/SS15?

    My wife is expecting and Crab seems to be the cracing most of the time So just want to be prepared.

    BTW, where is this Devil Crab in Taipan?

    I have always patronised the restaurant called Tuck Fook or Tuck Fuk (sounds like that) in Sri Damansara/Kepong. Their crab is cheap and nice. Recently they have open a branch in Bdr Puteri Puchong, good news to me. I have forgotten the price but it is fairly cheap RM16-18/kg.

    The new restaurant in Puchong located in shop office area opposite Giant, same row with Meizi steamboat.

    go to any wet market and buy the mangrove crab. Usually each of them (normal restaurant size) would only weigh between 20-300g each.

    Many restaurants esp. in Klang Valley cheat you by saying its 2crabs per kg. And thats how they can charge u rm15-18/kg...I usually countered by saying "what? 2 crabs, 2kg? include the plate & sauce right?"

    If u buy the sri lanka crab..know that a big one is only 1 kg..think a 1kg bag of sugar, for size.

    The famous penang tg tokong temple, baked crab restoran will serve u 4 crabs per kg. Three crabs if each crab size is like my fist they are not cheap but its value for money plus u dont walk away feeling cheated by a lowlife restaurantuer thinking u damn bodoh!
