fell a little flat
Fatty Crab has been on my list since 2009. I love that they characterize themselves as a joint because that's exactly what it felt like and that is something I am down with. In theory, I'm also down with the Malaysian inspired food, especially after the BFF introduced it to me in Australia. But the two dishes we ordered from Fatty Crab weren't awesome. They looked awesome, but fell short.
The noodles we ordered were borderline inedible. They were so salty we couldn't get past two bites. And I hate to waste food but the garbage was where it headed. I eavesdropped on the table next to us (they ordered the noodles too) and they felt the same way.
Their specialty chili crab was much better. It was also a tad salty but it was as flavourful as it was messy. Still, it was a far cry from the mud crab I had in Australia. Comparing the two is stupid,but I'm not feeling so smart today.
