woah…what a weekend! I had crabs again in Nusa Bestari, a place in between Tampoi and Taman Perling, JB. This restaurant, which has another competitor just operates besides them, was usually jam packed during evening on weekends. My Crab restaurant

What interest me is they served crabs at very affordable prices from Rm8.80 a plate, and unlike most restaurants, they never go by kg/price. They served a variety of flavours namely, salted-eggs crabs, black-pepper crabs, sweet and sour crabs and nyonya crabs. I tried nyonya crabs but I still find salted-eggs crabs better!

They also served good seafood and curry fish head but the attractions are still the crabs, at least to me.

I give it a 3.5 out of 5 ratings.

Then, on sunday, I tried a newly opened kopitiam in Taman Permas Jaya called ‘Grandpa kopitiam’.

Well, the kopi ok lah….not too bad while I also had kaya toast! mmm…i simply loved kaya toast in the morning with good kopi! So nice……….!

After breakfast, shopped around City Square and stumbled across Stonegrill, which opened an outlet there. I usually patronised the older outlet in Pelangi Plaza. And, well, here’s lunch!!

The outlet was at the basement of the shopping centre and their specialty was to serve food grilled on hot stone ( or maybe, iron). You can have sirloin steak, chicken chop, fish fillet and etc but all of these will be served raw while awaiting it to be cooked on the black iron/stone. I love to put some sauce like black pepper sauce on it while it was ‘cooking’ and sizzling!

Anyway, in case you don’t like western food, there’s also soupy stuffs like tom yam bee hoon or seafood bee hoon, which was also not cooked when served and you have to wait until the hot iron below heats it up!

Well, I give this 3.5 of of 5.

That’s it for another adventurous makan outing and do excuse me for the low res pics which are taken with my phone cam 🙂
