Sorry Jackson, for I only post this up now. ^^”
We threw our beloved celebrity flogger, Jackson a birthday dinner last month at King Crab Restaurant. If you’d been following the other floggers’ blog (which is on the right side of this blog), you would have heard about King Crab as our Precious Pea was their regular customer here till we crowned her the title Ms. President of King Crab.
Dishes arrived finally. Drunken Lala with wolfberries, ginger, Chinese wine and bird’s eye chillies. Unlike the one we had at Mei Chi Xuan which is the sweet version, King Crab’s version gave a slightly spicy aftertaste. It would be a good dish to have on a cold, rainy day.
Kailan cooked in two different way. The leaves were firstly separated from the stalks, shredded, then deep fried and tossed with anchovies and shredded cuttlefish. The stalks on the other hand, were just stir-fried with garlic. Interesting combination.
Cheong Sau Meen (Longevity Noodle) for the birthday boy! They gave a generous amount of chicken meat (Nigel claimed that they’re pork, but I say it’s chicken :p ) but I found that the noodle is kinda tasteless. The gravy came with it was just mediocre.
The favourites among the floggers, Butter Crab. For your information, King Crab DOES NOT use margarine as substitute to butter in this dish, they use real butter. That’s why the gravy was lip smackingly good, coupled with the fresh crabs… heaven. If you’re to order this, do remember to lap up the butter gravy with the accompanied mantou.
Tilapia baked with salt crust. Similar to Mei Chi Xuan’s but instead of stuffing the chillies, garlic and ginger mixture into the fish, King Crab serve the sauces along with the fish. One of them was their home made green chilli sauce which you can purchase from the counter. Buy 10, free 3. 🙂
As usual, we were busy stuffing ourselves and chat at the same time when we suddenly heard the customers at the next table started to sing “Happy Birthday” to a little girl. We joined in the fun and sang together and guess what, they share a big portion of the birthday cake with us! Jackson is so lucky!
