大闸蟹 @ 蟹皇海鲜楼 ~ Restoran King Crab : Hairy Crab (3)

大闸蟹的季节 ~ Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
而最方便又靠近我们的就是蟹皇海鲜楼咯...
报章上的广告说从 RM38起
可是当我们到达时招待员说都卖完了而且不再进货因为太小只吃不到什么
吃大闸蟹只是吃蟹粉/蟹黄而已
通常都没肉吃的...
The Hairy Crab season ~ Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
and the most convenient place for us to savour this will be at King Crab
According to the advertisement in the newspaper they are from RM38 onward but we were being told that these are no longer available as they are smaller in size and nothing much to eat
btw eating a hairy crab mainly is to eat the roe and usually this type of crabs are with very little meat ~







从我们的座位望过去...
大闸蟹们在柜里排到美美的
根据雌雄和体形的大小来分组 ~
from our table...
all of them are being displayed in the showcase
grouped by sex and sizes ~





看到很明显的不同吧?
左边的是雄的右边两只是雌的
雄的蟹粉/蟹黄是软的而雌的就比较硬
而我们要了两只都是雌的
价钱是根据重量来算的
优待价雄的要 RM88 而雌的就要 RM58
当然还有更大只的可是价钱就不一样咯 ~
See the difference ?
the one on the left is male while the other two are female
according to the captain the male has got softer roe while the female has the more solid roe
so we decided to had the female hairy crab instead ~
they are being charged according to their weight so the male hairy crab is heavier at RM88 while the female hairy crab is RM58 after discount
of cos there are larger ones ~





萝卜汁和沙梨汁 (RM3.80 一杯):
Carrot juice and Amra juice (RM3.80 each):





可以吃了哦...
Now they are ready to be eaten... Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket





这姜茶是和大闸蟹一起送来的
吃完大闸蟹就喝
这姜茶蛮好喝的一点也不辣 ~
the warm ginger tea is being served together with the hairy crabs:
to drink after eating the crab
i find this very flavoursome yet not to spicy ~





招待员帮我们弄的:
很快就弄好了
而大闸蟹还是热的... Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
there was a waiter who came to our table to cut out the hairy crabs for us:
this was done very quickly while the crab still hot...






蟹粉/蟹黄...很好吃哦 ~
鲜甜美味一级棒! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
除此之外蟹身没肉吃的
look at the crab roe ! soooooo delicious ~ Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
best of the best...
apart from that nothing much left in the body for eating




很奇怪的是蟹脚更多肉:
这也是招待员弄的
我就没这个本领...
Surprisingly we find the legs more meaty:
this is being done by the waiter too
i can never do it so beautifully...



标签还在螃蟹爪上...
the claws with the tag:





豉油皇鲜虾 (RM25):
有点失望虾太咸了...
Baked Prawns with Superior Soy Sauce (RM25):
i was kinda disappointed with this prawns
they are too salty...





清炒菜胆 (RM12):
Stir-fried Brussel Sprouts (RM12):

Dear Ms Ling239, sorry to read that while you patronised our restaurant on 28-10-2007, you are being told that the RM38 hairy crab are no longer available as they are smaller in size and nothing much to eat and the restaurant stopped to import this grade.
btw eating a hairy crab mainly is to eat the roe and usually this type of crabs are with very little meat ~
After our internal investigation, we have import coming in on the 26 Oct 2007 and ample of supply of RM38 (4 type, Yang Cheng Lake male 150g, Yang Cheng Lake Female 100g, Tai Lake MAle 150g, Tai Lake Female 100g), none of the staff admit that they give this wrong information to customer as there are many stock supply on that day and we have never run out of stock as we import by thousand crab each round. so we have to belanja you for the RM38 hairy crab by inviting you to our restaurant again. actually the meat of hairy crab is sweet and have nice fragrant, male have more meat and bigger size while female have more roe and less meat, body also have meat, we selling the size from 100g to 250g, so bigger size have more meat.
