Restaurant Drunk Cat, Kuchai Entrepreneurs' Park, Kuala Lumpur

The crab obsession continues......It looks like we are going to every eatery in town in search of the best spicy & sour chilli crabs. That's the only flavour I seem to order (much to hubby-to-be's chagrin) as I'm addicted to the sauce...other varieties do not come with much sauce to soak mantou in. So every week we are eating the same flavour with slight cooking variation in different restaurants.

This past weekend, it was a trip to Restaurant Drunk Cat (haha like the name!) where we found out the crabs were going cheap at RM18.00/kg. Drunk Cat has a pretty garish interior of bright orange walls and hot fuschia table cloths, like Garfield on a Mardi Gras parade.

So here was our platter of meat crabs at RM18.00/kg.......with an extra RM3.00 for the mantou bread.

The sauce was not so much spicy and sour as it was salty. It had a very strong oyster sauce taste, which made it more savoury than usual. I would have preferred it to be spicier and eggier, and more true to the "original" flavour.

We ordered a side dish of deep-fried butter squids. Loved the stringy bits...loaded with a salty, buttery, sweetish taste, with a hint of curry leaves. Rm12.00/plate.

The fried rice was pretty ho hum, we could have done this at home (and done it better too!). At RM10.00 for a serving for 2, it was pretty steep, considering that there were no prawns or meat (except for the lap cheong) in it.

Our rating system for overall satisfaction with what we eat and where we eat....

1-bam = don't even bother
2-bam = good enough to fill the tummy
3-bam = a very good restaurant in its category
4-bam = excellent cooking, worth a detour
5-bam = exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey

We would give this restaurant a 2-bam rating. We saw other tables having steamed fish, and spare ribs in a pineapple bowl, and both dishes looked real good. So maybe on our next trip, we'll order those and the rating will improve.
