I get excited just thinking about Fatty Crab and all the other dishes they have that I didn't get to on my first visit. An all around perfect meal from the ambiance, the menu, the service, and the exotic foods. A great birthday dinner with the hubby.
Here's what I said then (Feb. 20-26):
Jim took me to Fatty Crab 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 – 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.
