What to Eat at Fatty Crab Restaurant KL
One of the most satisfying ways to feel like a local is to order the restaurant’s signature sweet and sour crab – the gravy is thick yet not overwhelming in taste, with just the right balance of sweet and sour notes. When you are placing an order, be sure to ask for the homemade buns to go with it – they are great for dipping into the gravy!
The best time to go is between 18:00 and 19:00 as you’ll get the freshest (and possibly largest) shellfish. It’s also less crowded during this time; you may need to wait at least 30 minutes for a table if you drop by after 19:30. If you are in the mood for local seafood in Kuala Lumpur, Fatty Crab Restaurant is certainly the best place to drop anchor.
