Causeway Bay Spicy Crabs

~Backdated post~


Yes, this is another food post. :) Me and my girlfriend went to this place two weeks ago to celebrate one of our girlfriend birthday.


I never heard about this place, till one of them told me and i google and read some good review about the crabs here. “避风塘" this is Hong Kong style of cooking, heard so much this "bei fong tong" 避风塘 crabs, but never try before, and it's a lot different from what i had before.


Causeway Bay Spicy Crabs located at Desa Sri Hartamas, we went there after work, we were really early, and in the restaurant, it is only four of us till about 8pm then only dinner crowd start pour in!!








you choose the crabs, they got RM68 / RM80 and RM100, the higher price you paid, the more meat you get, i mean the crab meat, LOL!




this is 避风塘 "bei fong tong" crabs. Fried with lots of garlic and chili, they got few level of spicy-ness, we choose the mild one, we still can taste the spicyness, but it is really good!!





vegetables....


steam fresh water prawns with rice wine and egg white, very nice. We choose four prawns, maybe that night not so crowded, so it serve each of us in a individual plate instead of in a big plate, must eat it while still pipping hot. Yum!



a small portion fried rice for sharing....


salted egg crabs, look at the yolk!! it is not those "wet" type like what we are having in most restaurant. I think they fried the yolk, when you bite it, it is crispy, very nice and not salty, you can actually just eat the yolk like that, something different.


look at the food we order....now i only realise we order one more pork dish, but i didn't capture it.

after the meal, they serve this "guai lin gao" - "tortoise jelly or turtle jelly" Cooling and nice to have one after the heavy meal.


Our dessert didn't end there, last but not least, the last part is the birthday girl cake cutting session. Want to know how old is she, go and count the candles. LOL!!!



macadmia cheese cake...


the happy birthday girl, Pui Sim.


we...the four ladies.


We had a good time catch up and enjoy the food, but, i been not well for that past few days, i still don't have much appetite that night, with so many good food, i only manage to have my plate of prawn, ONE crab, few vegetables and few spoons of fried rice, how sad!!! I don't mind to go there again!
