Lou Sang @ King Crab

Chinese New Year already over, and now only I post about my Lou Sang dinner. Aiiishh....how embarassing! The dinner was last Friday, 2 days before Chap Goh Meh and because I was away to Bangkok the next day, I didn't have a chance to blog about it till now. Better late than never right?

After reading post after post on King Crab, my colleagues suggested to have dinner there, to find out why I have been frequenting this place so often. We reached there at sharp 6 p.m. and was their first group of customers. So determined isn't it? The food ordering process didn't take very long as I was given the task to decide the menu for the night.

First came the salmon yee sang (RM38) was surprisingly good with lots of shredded nutmeg. Am not a particular fan of yee sang but this is one of the best I had. Not too sweet nor sour. According to Ms CO, the sauce is PERFECT!

Our perfect looking yee sang before we attack!
Tossing for good health, good fortune, good luck...and I wish for whatever I wish for will be granted immediately (err...i want to retire now, travel once a month, ever-growing bank account .......)

The Boiled Prawn (RM45) was really fresh since it was scooped out from the aquarium right before cooking. The stock was so sweet and the prawns were so springy! Yumzz!

Ms Membership was still reminisching about the Salted Egg Squid (RM18) this morning. It was done really well that night! Two Thumbs and Two Toes Up!

Another favourite of the night was the Guinness Pork Ribs (RM18). Really tender and well marinated. Ms Events, who doesn't fancy pork loved this dish so much.

Yam Basket (RM20) was good too...specially ordered upon Ms Event's request.

I wasn't too fancy the Veggie Platter (RM30) which is actually Lo Hon Chai wrapped with Beancurd Sheets. The serving was quite big with broccolis, black mushrooms, green mustard, straw mushrooms, baby corns and carrots. Ms Membership commented that this dish was too complicated.

Ah-ha!! How can we not order this dish?? My favourite Claypot Butter Crab (RM38)!! Yumzzz...love it love it love it!!

And of course, the buns that goes well on its own and even heavenly with the crab's butter sauce.

Lastly, we ordered a bowl of Honey Lemon Sea Coconut with Longan (RM24) as recommended by Boo_licious. So refreshing and satisfying way to end such a lovely dinner.
My bowl of dessert....mmmm...

Total damage including tax came up to RM288.98 for 7 of us and all went home with a satisfying look.
