Fei Fei Crab @ Damansara Jaya, PJ


Let’s Get Crabbing!



It’s been 8 years since Fei Fei Crab Restaurant started their first restaurant in Desa Aman Puri, Kepong. Fast forward to now, Fei Fei Crab has 4 outlets to date which includes Crab Generation and Crab Sifu in their family operated restaurants. The latest outlet to hit our PJ dining scene is at Damansara Jaya under Fei Fei Crab Restaurant.

Situated along a busy row of shoplots in an urban housing area, Fei Fei Crab Restaurant is now serving up a feast of crab and seafood treats to all PJ diners on daily basis. The restaurant is a no frill restaurant so diners should just expect a decent minimalist ambiance flagged in their themed orange color serving up signatures of Chef Minamikon.


From a young age, Chef Minamikon has been working up his experience under Chef Steven before he open his first Fei Fei Crab restaurant eight years ago. Garnering his own repertoire over the years, diners can expect lots of creativity and deliciousness in his menu at all his crab restaurants.

We arrived on a public holiday for lunch and there was a solid crowd already at the restaurant ordering up classic as well as modern Chinese dishes for lunch. The menu has lots of tempting photos of the dishes, so much so you might have a hard time choosing since they all look so good. Fei Fei Crab obviously is famous for their crab dishes so choosing one should be a no-brainer.


We started off with the house signature of Fried Pork & Chicken with Yam Cake (RM35). Showcasing best of duo of pork and chicken plus a yummy yam basket, one cannot go wrong with an order of this dish. The chicken was crispy and coated in a yummy sweet and creamy glaze while the pork rib was nicely crusted and flavour with garlicky bits. The creamy and crisp yam basket was decent. It’s a lovely combination of meat that goes well on its own or with rice.





Thai Style Sour Steam Seafood (RM98) has diners drooling over the array of prawns, squid and lala all nicely bathed in a tangy and piquant Thai style sauce. The sauce has a solid balance of sweet, sour and savory with some heat while the fresh onions and coriander as well as hints of lemongrass aroma really whets the appetite for more. The seafood is also cooked nicely and served on a warmer to keep it warm and comforting.




One cannot really go wrong with steamed fish as long as the fish is fresh and cooked just right. The Hot & Spicy Steam Tiger Grouper (RM13 per 100g) was another dish that warrants an order. Simplicity of the cooking method showed off the fresh and sweet notes of the highly prized tiger garouper. The mount of punchy spicy garlicky and black bean topping enhanced the flavours of the fish well, boosting extra umami notes. Hand me more steamed rice please…


Porky goodness prevails in Pattaya Pork Knuckles (seasonal price). A mega hunk of full glorious pork knuckle cooked for hours before being finished with a crispy deep fried bath is served with pickled onions and a moreish Thai sauce on the side. Some dishes just takes extra love and effort and this one pays off well.


The crispy skin coupled with soft and tender meat of the pork are lighted up with the tangy and bitey pickled onions. The sauce added more oomph to the pork. Bits of gelatinous fats of the pork also made the dish more heavenly on the palate. Minor quips but I wish for the skin to be more crispy evenly as some were a tad chewy. Other than this small quip, I really love the pickled onions with the pork knuckle a lot.



One of my personal favorite of the lunch was the Lala Veggie Soup with Black Pepper (RM28). Chef Minamikon really took a gamble and added black pepper and butter to the soup, making the dish more delicious than the classic version. The soup was so creamy and rich with a good hint of peppery notes that really went well with the fresh sweet clams and soft spinach. I polished my bowl and had extra soup because I enjoyed it so much.



For diners of all ages, one cannot go wrong with an order or Scallop, Prawn and Clams Tofu (RM38). Housemade bean curd made from egg and soy bean milk, the tofu was superb. Smothered in a typical brown gravy, the tofu also comes with some scallops, prawn and pacific clams with broccoli and a topping of crispy kai lan leaves. Comfort food at its best…


The time came for crabs and we had two sauces whipped up with XXL size crabs. Currently on the market price, 2 pieces of XXL crabs seen here are about RM136. Prices changes according to market price. Fei Fei Crab also serves Large and XL size crab for affordability.



While there are plenty of sauces to choose from in their signature list of crabs, one cannot go wrong with the Salted Egg Crab – Creamy version (depending on sizes and market price). Take a serious look at the glorious and sinful this crab looks! All golden and glistening in full glory, the salted egg crab sauce is unctuously superb. Enjoyed it hot for best flavours. The richness of the sublime salted egg yolk and cream hit all the right flavours of what we love in a salted egg yolks. One can still enjoy the sweetness of the crab flesh despite all the richness of the sauce too. Must order!



While you are at it, order their Fried Chinese Bun (RM5 each roll) to mopped up the sauces.



Our next sauce was the Claypot Kam Heong Cheese Crab (depending on sizes and market price). While Kam Heong sauce is usually a much pleaser on its own already, this version is amped up with cheese. The spices of the sauce reminded me more of curry notes than the usual Kam Heong and with the addition of cheese, the sauce is made extra rich and creamy with peppery spices. Served in claypot, we enjoyed the dish slowly as the sauce is better when its warm. Our table of diners favored this sauce over the first one while I enjoyed the Salted Egg one more.  A solid adversary to the first crab dish in its own way.


Fei Fei Crab has got so much more to offer on their menu. The restaurant serves comfort Chinese dishes with lots of crab dishes for crabbies like me. No frills, just solid Chinese comfort food for daily savoring. Prices are decent for the quality and portions. They have branches in Cheras, Puchong, Kepong and now Petaling Jaya, so head on over to your nearest location of Fei Fei Crab, Crab Generation of Crab Sifu!

  4. 敬爱的佛教信土:
    我是甲洞三宝寺 (暹廟) SAMNAK SAMBODHI BUDDHIST ASSOCIATION NO: 19-21 JALAN 38 TAMAN DESA JAYA KEPONG 52100 KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA. 的理事, 当任此职多年, 对内的事務也一清二楚。

    最近, 在网络上看了PHRA PIYATHAMMO和尚和马华公会鸱唛区主席叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师的双方信件, 使我的内心久久不能平伏, 良心受到很大的譴責, 不吐訢不痛快, 所以我要誠恳的説:他叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)侓师叫外来的流流氓到三宝寺(暹廟)挑衅和尚打架及电招警方人员扣捕沙彌, 其嘲笑手法, 不外是要显示其权力, 而鞏固其职位, 以达到权力就是一切, 好让住持难堪, 自动離开, 方便行事……这种举动, 已间接的表逹其含意, 住持和尚兼顾问, 都无能为力,你们这些信徒能做什么?即使告马耒西亜佛教总会又能为难什么?这种心态, 的硧令人反感, 不是一个正信佛教者应有的行为。

    至今, 三宝寺的理事成员多数是其親戚, 这是实事, 加入会员需交RM100元费用,同时,必须经过叶金福(Yip Kum Fook)律师的同意,否则免談, 所以会员也不多。

    马华公会鹅唛区主席叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师,自控制三宝寺之後,把三宝寺(暹廟)当着私人產業,聘用和尚賺钱,利用佛教的道地为政治活动埸所,而处理三宝寺的钱财也不透明?这点,值得信众追问。马来西亚地擴人多,和尚也不缺乏,为什么不用本地和尚当任住持化缘,却偏偏劳心劳神,浪费签证费,交通费? 还要烦劳梹城佛总的推荐信, 向文化不同, 而語言又不通之千哩外囯缅旬和尚求助? 为什么….为什么? 只要我们用头脑想一想,便一日了然, 不必晝虎添足。

    叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak )律师说:欢迎任何人如有意见,可以电话03:62762369/0122039700 Email: YIPKUMFOOK@HOTMAIL.COM 戓到其马华公会鹅唛区会甲洞三宝寺及以下地圵:NO.2,B JALAN 53 TAMAN DESA JAYA KEPONG 52100 SELANGOR, MALAYSIA.討論, 我要老实的提醒大家, 最好不要一个去見他, 因为这个人狡滑, 笑裡藏刀, 很阴险, 出家人都不放在眼裡, 連TAMAN DAYA 52100 KEPONG, KUALA LUMPUR. 众人的印度廟也敢放火燒, 利用权势把场地佔为己有, 由此可见, 他是何等的心毒? 还有现在三宝寺内, 各处都按裝计孔监视来人一举一动。

    目前, 三宝寺很多信徒及当地居民, 已经对叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak )律师不满, 但也不能做什么。他计划把三宝寺主席的职位轉给其子YIP JIUN HANN律师, 续承皇朝. 想近一部了觧詳情, 可上网得知。

    再说, 根据前理事在网络上给叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师的批評, 説他懂得包裝自己的道德守则, 以宗教为幌子手, 到处募款, 啇業经营, 政治活动为重, 并没依循佛教守則行事, 也没对人道作出貢献, 只不过借三宝寺宗教之名捞取权和私利而己, 其言也不为过, 是实事。

    在此, 我恳切希望, 廣大的佛教信仰者, 给予关注, 并共創義举, 弘扬佛教. 谢谢。

  5. Dear brothers and sisters who love the Dharma
    Let me tell you the history about SANNAK SAMBODHI, TAMAN DESA JAYA, KEPONG, KUALA LUMPUR. Last time we were members of the temple but now we are very far apart because now the committee members are very proud of the activities or duties of the temple.
    On the other hand, the current president of the temple is YIP KUM FOOK and son YIP JIUN HANN. His son always said to the devotees: THIS TEMPLE IS MY FATHER’S TEMPLE. Or is it my father’s property…we are silent because We know this temple very well where it came from…
    Now the members of the temple committees are their only group. Others cannot join as members and use Myanmar monks only for service and blessing. Only Myanmar monks are very smart (All monks from Myanmar have the rank of DR or PH. D), but the disciples(devotees) here are very confused because the disciples here have never heard of that name(titles).
    If we understand the teachings of Buddhism that creates BAD KARMA. will receive what has been done

    Malaysia

    Dear Devotees,

    Before I commence of my letter-writing toward. All of you, I would like to inform all of you that I am not satisfy with the lawyer, Dato YIP KUM FOOK (MCA chairman Gombak) due to his bad inspirit impressions because he sent an inspector to come to our SAMNAK SAMBODHI BUDDHIST TEMPLE, 19 Jalan 38 Taman Desa Jaya Kepong, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to arrest me without any good reason, moreover, the lawyer, YIP KUM FOOK is not satisfy with Chief monk.

    When the Chief monk had me to go to his Temple already and he went away and left me alone to take care until Chief monk come back to the Temple first and he also told me not to leave the Temple if any committees or the chairman want to chase me out, you don’t leave the Temple at all understand? Then I said, alright? To the chief monk! On the second Day, YIP KUM FOOK(MCA Man) came to our Temple and talk to me. He tired to make some inquiry from me and he asked me, where I come from? I told him that I came from Penang.

    Then, I told to the lawyer (YIP KUM FOOK, MCA Man) that the chief monk came to Penang and fetch me and invited me to accompany him to go to his temple in K.L. I am not aware that YIP KUM FOOK(MCA chairman Gombak) is not in a good terms with the chief monk, chief monk already in this way, YIP KUM FOOK try to create trouble with me unnecessary. That is why, the lawyer want to chase me out of the Temple. Then I asked the lawyer, why you want to chase me out of the temple? Moreover, the Temple is not belonging to you, UNDERSATAND? Then, I asked him, who are you? I don’t know you at all, you have no right to chase me or control me at all, UNDERSTAND? You are just like a layman only. Do you know the regulations that any the chairman or committee cannot control the monks and the Nuns at all, also UNDERSTAND?

    I scolded him like that. Then the lawyer (YIP KUM FOOK, MCA Man) is not satisfy with me and he told me that he will called the police to come to the Temple and arrest me. I told him to go ahead and called the police to come and arrest me. I won’t run away, I said to him like that. I have done nothing wrong toward you, why you want to arrest me? He said, he doesn’t like me to stay here. I asked him, why? Again. After this he got very angry with me, then he phoned up to the police and the police came to the Temple and told me to leave the Temple.

    I told to the inspector of the again, I am sorry, I won’t leave the Temple because the chief monk had instructed me not to leave the Temple without his consent, UNDERSTAND? Then the inspector told me to leave, again. I told him I cannot leave the Temple because the Chief Monk hasn’t come back yet. This time, the inspector got very angry with me and he took out his handcuff and try to threaten me, then I immediately show off my hands for him to lock me up but he scare, then again, the inspector told me leave the Temple again but I still don’t want to leave the Temple.

    Then I phoned up to the chief monk again and I told him that the inspector insisted want to arrest me, you better come back to settle the case for me. After this incident, Chief Monk came back to the Temple and take me to go to another temple and stay their. That’s all about this incidents! Last of all, I would like to inform all of you, that no committees or the chairman can control all the monks and Nuns at all also UNDERSTAND? “They are higher than the King,” also! So how can the laymen, the committees and the chairman to control them: – EVEN THE KING ALSO RESPECTED THE MONKS AND NUNS. Why the chairman doesn’t respect the monks and nuns? They will carry the sins later on, UNDERSTAND?

    Yours in Dhamma

  7. Dear brothers and sisters into the Dhamma
    We would like to inform all Buddhists in Malaysia about YIP KUM FOOK who is the president of SAMNAK SAMBODHI BUDDHIST TEMPLE, Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong, Kuala Lumpur. Buddhists have to follow any precepts rules but YIP KUM FOOK there is nothing any precepts rules in Buddhism, it is very embarrassing.
    Also, he called the police to harass the Buddhist monks at the temple. Adding he cheated Myanmar monk’s money, many people know about it.
    On the other hand, this YIP KUM FOOK did not feel ashamed and embarrassed of the Buddha, he thought, he was a very successful person, also he is dirty in MCA politics
    Thank you so much and please share with all
