BAKED CRABS @ SEA PEARL LAGOON CAFE, PENANG


This place is behind a Thai Pak Kong temple at Tanjong Tokong. This is a lunch treat from Dr. S and Irene. We had sea crabs and mud crabs. Dr. S specially ordered in advance female crabs (see the eggs on the crab in the background).

This is unadulterated crabs at its natural best. The crabs are cleaned, chopped up and put in cast-iron wok over high flames. Nothing is added. They are cooked in their own juice. See the dark patches on the sea crabs in the foreground? They are seared marks made by the hot wok. We polished off the crabs with their home-made chili dipping sauce.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
