One of the most loved crustaceans, crab! Oh yes, that sweet, almost pearl white meat cooked in so many ways. Yum! We get it, eating crab can be quite tedious and messy at the same time. But, going through all that shell breaking and devouring that glorious piece of meat with an awesome sauce that is cooked in, it’s all worth it! My mouth is watering already. Here’s our list of the top four best crab restaurants in the Klang Valley.
Restoran Fatty Crab
This restaurant has been around for a pretty long time, and the highlight? Crab of course! They are known for their signature sweet and sour crab dish accompanied with a portion of bread to soak up the gravy. With a variety of seafood dishes to choose from, most people just come here for their crab dishes.
Address: 2 Jalan SS24/13, Taman Megah, Petaling Jaya
Opening Hours: 5.30pm-11.30pm, Tue-Sun
If you want to try a whole different style of cooking crab then you would want to check this place out. The idea came about by an adventurous road trip to the States where the owner of Crab Factory experienced a melting pot of Louisiana culture – the home of Jazz and Blues, the love of celebration and festivals and most unforgettably, the backyard Crab Boil. Crab and a variety of seafood are doused in an aromatic blend of seasoning and spices.
Address: 21, Jalan SS2/64, Petaling Jaya
Opening Hours: 11am-11pm, Fri-Sun, 3pm-11pm other days, except Tuesdays
Super Crab Aroma Seafood Restaurant
The name says it all. Known for their butter and cheese crab, yes, so sinful we know! Imagine, crabs that are covered with a thick layer of creamy cheese sauce with a sprinkle of fried garlic bits to top it off. This is definitely not for the faint of heart. Okay, we take that back! Go all out! You know you deserve it.
Address: 40, Jalan BM 1/2, Taman Bukit Mayang Emas, Petaling Jaya

Hoi Peng Seafood Restaurant
Let’s keep the ball rolling shall we? Who loves salted egg? We do! And if you do too, then Hoi Peng is the place to be. Upon ordering, request for the fat claws. Oh yes, you guessed it right. Huge crab claws that are already cracked open for you, covered with creamy and crunchy salted egg yolks, a dish truly satisfying for crab lovers out there.
