Fei Fei Crab Bukit Jalil
Fei Fei Crab Restaurant is a popular seafood chain in the Klang Valley.
Fei Fei first started as a restaurant in Kepong before expanding to six outlets in Malaysia – with shops in Damansara Jaya (PJ), Bukit Rimau (Shah Alam), Johor Bahru, and Melaka.
We’ve passed by the Damansara Jaya outlet many times, which always looked busy on weeknights.
It turns out that this Bukit Jalil restaurant was recently opened – and we managed to secure one of the last few tables that were not reserved.
According to a friend who is a crab lover, the original Fei Fei Crab Restaurant in Kepong serves some of the freshest crabs in town at decent prices.
Fei Fei Crab Bukit Jalil offers great deal
We had no intentions of having seafood for dinner that evening – but when we saw Fei Fei’s promo, we knew we couldn’t pass it up.
We ordered two XL crabs for RM168 (about 420grams per crab), which comes with a free serving of steamed river prawns!
As we don’t eat crab often – we had to check with our friends who agreed that it was a good deal. We also added a serving of fried mantous (RM12 for 10 pieces) and stir-fry dragon chives.
Ham Sap and Kam Heong crabs
Fei Fei offered at least 18 different cooking styles for crabs on the menu. Interesting ones included Musang King Crab and Oreo Cheese Crab.
Upon recommendation, we ordered the Ham Sap Crab – which means “pervert” in Cantonese – which is a combination of salted egg and butter gravies. The last time we ate Ham Sap Crab was at CRAB MEET 蟹逅 in Aman Suria (see our post here).
Nothing perverse about this crab
We enjoyed the Ham Sap Crab. The gravy had a good balance of salted egg and butter flavours without being too cloying, with a good consistency for dipping with the fried mantous.
The crabs were definitely fresh and juicy – evidenced by the burst of natural sweet juice when we bite into the flesh of the crab claws!
Very plump and soft mantous
The mantous here were also excellent as they were actually big for the price (RM1.20 for one). The buns were soft and fluffy inside with a nice crispy edge. More importantly, it wasn’t greasy at all.
This is probably one of the better mantous we’ve eaten at a Chinese seafood restaurant.
Dry Kam Heong
To contrast the wet gravy of the Ham Sap Crab, we decided to order the Dry Kam Heong Crab. Note that we had to pay an additional RM18 to have the crabs prepared in two flavours under the promotion.
As the name implies – Kam Heong means “golden fragrance” in Cantonese – the gravy was very tasty with a good balance of spiciness and saltiness from the curry powder, dried shrimps, onions and belacan.
Free river prawns!
The free serving of River Prawns was excellent too!
We recieved eight sizeable prawns that were fresh and steamed perfectly to yield a good bite and juiciness. The prawns were served with a sweet chilli condiment, but the prawns also worked well with soy sauce to truly taste the sweetness.
Good stir-fry dragon chive
Stir-fry vegetables is often an afterthought for Chinese meals – but the ones that cook vegetables well always make an impression!
These stir-fry dragon chives were actually well prepared – greens that were actually fresh and crunchy, not greasy, with the right amount of seasoning of salt and aromatics. The addition of mushrooms and carrots were a nice touch.
We were really satisfied with our meal.
Apart from being a good deal, the seafood were really fresh and well-prepared. Even the fried mantous and stir-fry dragon chives made good impression!
RECOMMENDED! We also advise making reservations to secure your table, and to enquire on their existing promotions.
