Spicy Crab Portuguese & Local Cuisine (Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam)

While driving around, half-half noticed Spicy Crab Restaurant, the latest addition in Kota Kemuning. Returning home feeling a lil' excited, we agreed and confirmed with the family on this restaurant for dinner. Family was also told to arrive at 7pm but you know lah! With the common excuses, traffic jam and cannot find the place, dinner started at 7.30pm. While two big tables for 20 people were set-up so that the family can settled down, the owner suggested the signature dishes and we sure didn't mind.

The dishes were then served and everyone sure helped themselves.
 Grilled Eggplant - subtle and basic tastes, tasted good the simpleness. 
Garlic Kailan  - green leafy veg stir fried over hight heat while retaining the crunchiness and with lots of garlic and atop with crispy fried shrimps.  
Chilli crab - fresh crabs in a thick truly spicy and vibrant gravy. 
Nestum crab - not any more a a unique dish as per say, obviously with Nestum and curry leaves and garlic soaking the fresh crabs. 
Nestum prawn - a similar dish, just that with succulent big prawns. 
Butter Garlic Scallop - well, "another one bites the dust", featuring the same cooking style and ingredients except the scallops. 
Grilled Siakap - fish grilled and topped with onion and cucumber for the mild hint of flavours. 
Prawn otak-otak - oh-no was the reaction. Blistering the "heat is on" gravy with minced prawn paste, topped with onion and ladies finger/okra. These dishes came with three types of dips - Chilli Tamarind Onion, Chilli Tempoyak and Sambal Belacan. Almost all the family members couldn't withstand the spiciness of the chilli crab and otak otak, also they didn't want to have anything to do with the dips. Just maybe two or three of us loved the dips and we liked all the dishes including the spicy ones though almost ripped apart the throat and tongue.    

Washed down with gallons of Jasmine tea, we struggled to walk back to the car after this big feast. Quite an interesting array of Portuguese dishes, well executed with fresh ingredients and service was excellently well. Ambiance - there's the inside and outside dining area.
