Jumbo Japanese Sweet Prawns in Spicy Plum
These jumbo prawns are also called Amaebi RM59/300g and RM90/500g
Amaebi is the Japanese word for these Jumbo Japanese Sweet Prawns. These Japanese darlings aptly matches the Spicy Plum sauce that brings out the sweetness of the prawns. The translucent sweet, sour and slightly spicy sauce makes the crunchy prawns more appetizing. Sucking the heads of the prawns to savour the sauce is definitely expected of you. The Jumbo Japanese Sweet Prawns (Amaebi) are on 30% off till 31st Jan 2017.



White Prawns in Creamy Lemak sauce
RM39/300g and  RM55/500g
Although the name Creamy Lemak sounds heavy, this sauce is piquant with the fragrance of curry leaves which gives the dish an uplifting taste. Creamy Lemak is recommended with white prawns as how they are suited in curry. Creaminess gives it a satisfying after taste. Approach this sauce with some planning as the cream can be quite filling. 

Yabbies in Thai Sambal sauce
RM52/300g and RM83/500g
The Thai Sambal sauce is for those who cannot live without the 'kick' of Malaysian flavour. The Thai department contributes to its tangyness amidst the spiciness of sambal. The presence of local spices are prominent and suitable with any crustaceans. My choice for the evening, yabbies because according to The Crab Factory fun fact sheet, they are near zero fat and cholesterol!

Seafood Set Meat Crab in mild Signature Southern Bang sauce
RM175 per set (for 2 people)
Meat Crab in medium Signature Southern Bang sauce
L size (600g-700g) RM120/ kg
Of course I did not miss their signature sauce the Signature Southern Bang in mild and medium. The good old Louisiana taste which blends all sweet, sour, salty and spicy garners some regular fans. The unique taste is exclusive to The Crab Factory and guarantees finger and shell-licking experiences. Other existing sauces are Zesty Lemon, Garlic Butter and Jamba- Jamba (tomato base)

Clockwise from top left: Shallot Rice RM5.00
Homemade Garlic Bread RM8.90
Fried Enoki Mushrooms RM8.90
Mini Mantau RM9.00
Articulate your seafood experience also with their side dishes that are given equal attention in the kitchen. Their shallot rice is fragrant and like the mini man tau (chinese bun), lets you relish every bit of the sauce before they roll away those paper on the tables. The Fried Enoki (golden needle mushroom) is something that I would order again. Fried in well seasoned batter, the savoury strands are fun to eat especially when dipped with sauce... any sauce of your choice!
Cannot resist the literal spread on the table. The BIP is essential
