Go Crabbing at Teow Chow Seafood Restaurant, Bukit Sri Bintang, Kepong - Revisit

Menjalara and Bukit Sri Bintang have a huge concentration of Tai Chows dishing out good crabs. When I think of quality crabs cook to my satisfaction it has to be here. My last visit to Teow Chow left a good impression and I wanted to revisit it again but this time ordering more variety as well as quantity.

We went for 1.3 kg of Crab with Butter Sauce and another 1.3 kg of Crabs with Salted Egg Yolks. Each weighed in at about 0.6+ kg. With a crowd of three we have more than sufficient to go round.
Claws were huge and the meat was fresh, succulent and firm. The plentiful butter sauce got the mantou soaked thoroughly. What a combination. So fulfilling!
The cook controlled the saltiness very well giving us a pleasant dish not overwhelmed by all the salt. This allowed the shell fish taste to surface being helped by the sauces. A dish to savour .Mantou was used to soak up the butter sauce and scrapped the salted egg yolk sauce.
More carbo to filled the stomach!. Glass noodles is usually a good combination when paired with seafood. A match made in culinary heaven.
Stir-fried potatoes leaves with garlic round up the meal.

I could never decide between butter sauce crabs or salted egg yolk crabs --- yours is an elegant solution, sir --- have them BOTH! :D
