For years before, I had heard stories about the legendary roasted garlic crab served there. I didn't give it too much thought because I grew up eating crab with a mayonnaise-shoyu dip. But I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to try it.
Rasa Malaysia's recipes for Roasted Garlic Crab and Garlic Noodles can be found here. I use 1/4 the amount of black pepper because I don't usually care for pepper. I've made the crab with both dungeness and king crab. For ease, I prefer king crab. My wallet prefers dungeness.
The above link will take you to recipes for both roasted garlic crab and garlic noodles. When I make roasted garlic crab, I always make the garlic noodles. I'm not sure if its for nostalgic reasons or not, but it goes well with the crab and tastes so good. The local Chinese store sells fresh noodles (Shandong Fresh Noodles), but spaghetti works great too. I also try to have a baguette nearby for mopping up all the tasty sauce.
Although I've never tried it, extra jumbo shrimp could likely be used in place of the crab. I know that Thanh Long serves garlic prawns, and my BFF tells me he prefers the prawns to the crab for ease of eating. When it comes to eating, shopping and Trivial Pursuit, my BFF is hard to beat!
And while I do love cats, a jaguar is more my speed. . .a black one (preferably an XKR-S), especially if I was looking for something young, sleek, and ultra-hot!
