Restaurants »Fatty Crab

Fatty Crab Jim took me here for my birthday and it's been a long time since I have had such a wow-ing meal. From the green mango with a sugar salt chili powder dip, then on to the unbelievably good quail egg shooters (lined up in degrees of spiciness, served in their own shells), to the almost no-need-to-chew- tenderness of the short ribs with melding flavors of sweet and salty to the grand finale of the chili crab (pictured) – a huge bowl of slathered tasty shelled crab with a pungent delicious sauce (don't wear anything too nice with this dish – you will get messy) – this is one of the most memorable meals we've had in the city.

I can't wait to go back and try all the other yummy sounding dishes on the menu. The staff is unpretentious, the atmosphere is bustling and comfy – the only downside -no reservations. We ate an early dinner around 6:00 – by the time we left – 7:30, there was a line out the door.
