Grilled Crabs with Nong & Jimmy.
While awaiting to go down south with Roger, Farid & Tricia for a couple of gigs...I spent the night over at Farid & Tricia's since I was following their car and we're leaving early the next day. So for dinner they brought me to this place past Ampang Point, maybe close to Pandan Indah or something like that for some really good grilled crabs.
Seems like this place is very famous with the Ampang crowd and I was told that it's always full. Well, I was about to find out why it's always full. :)
The place is runned by a couple, Nong and Jimmy... Thai and local I guess. The place is kinda run-down and can be quite a turn-off but the food is fantastic so I suggest if you're coming here... sit as close as possible to the road and erm, do not visit the toilets! That's all I'm saying other than that...the food is really good! :D
Best starters are these little/mini yau char quays that come with pandan spread. Love them to bits! :) So yummy and once you start, you can't stop!
Since there was only 3 of us, we only had a few dishes such as the vegetables with salted fish.
Their la-la is pretty yummy too... Saw other tables ordering a alcohol based soup with la-la, think I'll try that the next round. :)
The fish was absolutely fabulous! Paired with their chilli sauce, it was *slurp*! Fresh, soft meat. Man, it was good!
You will definitely need more of these chilli sauce so don't be shy to ask for more!
And the finale to all that was the grilled crabs. Quite different from what I was used to having but good change nonetheless. Goes very well with the chilli sauce since it's dry.
So anyone wanna take a ride down downtown for some grilled crabs with me? :)
