Restoran South Pacific, PJ New Town, Selangor

It's summer, and the season for CRABS! South Pacific Restaurant in PJ New Town has its Anniversary Happy Hour Promotion every July for a couple of months. All seafood is at reduced prices between 6pm-7pm and 11pm-3am daily. So July is when the Cancerian in me really comes to the fore.
The promotion.

The promotional prices. Big Indonesian Crabs are at RM30.00/kg compared to the normal price of RM40.00/kg. We've been here twice since the promo started.

MEAL 1 (2 persons):

Delicious fried tanghoon noodles with LOTS of eggs and lap cheong! RM9.00 for 2 persons. Excellent!

Sweet, sour and spicy chilli (Indonesian) crabs (RM48.00). This is my absolute favourite style of having crabs cooked; the gravy here is full of crab roe-goodness and just perfect in its sweet, sour and spicy combination, compared to all the other restaurants I've had this dish. The crab claws are huge and luscious! Writing about this itself is making my mouth water.

MEAL 2 (4 persons):

Bro in law and gf are obviously in the know about the promotion. We went and ate ourselves silly. 4 heavenly king vegetables fried with sambal belacan, our usual favourite.

Tomyam squid, which was pretty good! If only I could focus on this dish long enough.....but when the crabs came, I was lost.

A humongous talapia done in Vietnamese style that costs only RM12.00. Sweet, spicy, tangy.

Dry curry (Indonesian) crabs. This was excellent, I have never eaten crabs cooked this way before. The curry gravy soaked into the sweet, tender crab flesh and infused it with a piquant spicyness that was made my tastebuds tingle.

The total bill for MEAL 2 came up to about RM95.00 for the 4 of us. So cheap!
