After half an hour, no one attended to us! Argh! There was an auntie (who for lack of a better word, was a real bitch) barking out orders at customers to wait for her to get to them. My mom tried to get her attention but she downright brushed past my mom to attend to a bigger group that arrived later than us. My mom was pissed.
Then I proposed heading over to the less-crowded restaurant opposite the road, Pangkor Village Seafood restaurant. Hungry and irritated, the family agreed and within two minutes, we were seated without any fuss. Every table in the restaurant was filled with people, which I guess, was like us. Unable to deal to Fatty Crab's shitty front service.
Unlike Fatty Crab which has a limited menu to deal with the overwhelming customers, Pangkor Village Seafood's range of dishes is much wider. That night, we ordered five dishes to try.
|Fried steamed buns|
To start off, we had the Fried Mantau Bun (RM2.50/5pcs) Expectedly, it was soaked in oil. Nothing a little tissue paper can't solve. From the first bite, it was crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Good stuff. Just wished it came with something to dip it in but it was fine for a starter.
|Clam soup with white wine and wolfberry.|
|Delicious salted eggs crabs|
The total damage came up to RM134, taking into account a pot of tea, tidbits and rice. Overall it was a satisfying experience and I would definitely go back to Pangkor Village Seafood again for their Mantau Buns and Salted Egg Crabs.
As for Fatty Crabs, it will be a while before I will attempt to try that place again. Until then, I hope they come up with a much more efficient and unbiased seating system that isn't handled by an old lady who thinks bigger groups means more ka-ching...
