Mei Keng Fatt @ Kuala Ampang

We headed here before the hordes of hungry patrons poured in after 7 pm.

Winter melon soup. Would be better if there were more seafood in this.

Kampung otak-otak beancurd. Crisp on the outside, soft and sweet inside.

Chilli crab. Is this Malaysian or Singaporean? Either way, an enjoyable recipe.

Marmite pork ribs. Not bad but not memorable. No more ordering Marmite dishes!

Beehoon kam heong crab. Less oil & salt would make this more pleasurable.

Braised pork trotter. Seemed overcooked, since the meat was too tough.

Mei Keng Fatt,
Off Jalan Awan, Kuala Ampang.

  5. chilli crabs have been around since ages. yet NOW only we're fighting for the rights to call them our own?
    aiyo. then might as well patent butter crabs, steamed crabs, salted egg crabs,etc.

  6. j2kfm: oh well, it started out as a publicity effort, but it seems to have backfired.

  7. you know,google Makan Sutra ( a food 'historian' in S'pore who has his own show and shop),you'd know that Chilli Crab originates from S'pore (where the originator is still alive) which was part of M'sia...
    Does it matter?! M'sia has so many delicious and unique dishes second to none, why fight with s'pore? Ai....

  9. Revisited Mei Keng Fatt. Very disappointed. Expensive, bad food, stewed pig trotter tasted like straw. On complain, capt recooked and sent back to us!! Imagine!! Same straw taste, he walked away. Steamed egg overcooked Capt mumbled sometimes this happened. 5 people RM250.Other dishes, soup, yam cup, lala & kangkong. Will NOT go back again.
