Skipped gym for two weeks because i wanted to do my assignment. Almost died from the heart overpumping after running on the cardio machine just now.
Always have the feeling that i am not getting enough sleep but find myself still needing to read materials even at 11pm (yes, i am a baby).
What else? Yeah, a good old fashioned food review, yes ladies and gentlemen, it is CRAB TIME!
In my not so many years of hunting for good crabs, there has not been 1 restaurant that is as special as Fatty Crab, which does not necessary mean it is a good catch.
Where else have you eaten crabs that is offered in 2 two styles? and i mean T W O styles.
Sweet and Sour (I mean Chilli) Crabs or Steam Crabs?
I digged my ears and asked, is that it?
"Yeah, you want which one ar?" was the simple reply.
I almost fainted.
To make things easier (because there aren't many options around) or tougher, was either the captain was just being a prick and telling me two items per protein/carbs or the chef that day was also being a prick by declaring i only know how to cook so many items.
Fish? Two choices
Carbs? Fried rice..how about noodles? Err, udon.
Chicken, squid or prawns? At this point, i just pluck the 1st item she muttered and let my misery be by gone.
If there was one thing i respected about this place, is that they really stick to what they believe is good, what my taste buds say is good though is obviously another matter. The dishes came flying out so fast as well that by the time i poured my tea, the first crab dish appeared.
If you cant take spicy, then you only got 1 other choice, the steamed crabs with abit of egg white at the bottom. The problem is this; it gets cold and then its horrible to eat. While its hot though, it burns your hands when you suck out the meat from the claw. The lack of essence from the crabs that flows to the scarce sauce was a pity assuming that the crabs were fresh, of course.
Another item that was recommended by the captain. In fact it wasn't so much of a recommendation, more like "Do you want fried rice? *Stares at you demanding an answer*. The good thing was every grain of rice was separately tossed in some beans, eggs and prawns giving the so hyped up about "wok hei".
At this point, you wouldn't have thought that i manage to squeeze out from the kitchen another two dishes, well i did.
The stuffed tau foo with mayonnaise that looked more like yau char kuey. It was definitely stuffed with some sort of crab meat paste; the left over crabs perhaps?
For RM 200 plus, i think i find another place for dinner.

Verdict: 2.5 stars out of 5 stars. Yes, the view of the massive lake and the golf course is beautiful. Seating beside it as well, resulted in no sweat throughout the whole dinner, with the breeze working in full gear to ensure your dinner is not interrupted with wiping sweat of your forehead. Then again, this is the era where people demand choices and if you only serve two kinds of crabs which are rather not memorable, it is kind of crap right?
