We're no strangers to Pantai Seafood, in Sg Ara, but despite the fact that I've eaten more salt than a lot of young bloggers have eaten rice, I've never before sampled the Alaskan King Crab. At RM248 per kilo, this mother here, weighing 2.3kg, was a whopping RM570!!! Not something you get to eat everyday.
Anyway, since there was an occasion yesterday, (and it wasn't only just Father's Day), I am finally an alaskan king crab virgin no more.
So what is the big deal, you ask? Well, for starters, all those legs are filled with luscious, chewy crab meat. It is a bit like a cross between a lobster and our mudcrab actually, incorporating the best of both worlds. The meat is wonderfully succulent, and it's easy to deshell. And the superior stock in which it is cooked was absolutely delectable.
Another first for me, at Pantai, was this fried glass noodle. (tong fun). Well, it warrants a picture coz it was something we havent ordered before here at Pantai.
On the baking front, I have been experimenting with cheesecakes. Below is a pic of a baked blueberry cheesecake. Have also been dabbling with chilled durian cheesecake, but haven't managed to take a decent pic.
