Lobsters, Hamaguri Clams Freshwater Prawns, Mussels, Corn and Potatoes. It also
comes with 2 Fried Mantao and 4 Shallot Rice to go with all that yummy sauce.
those who never tried Crab Factory Creole sauce, this Southern Bang has a robust
tangy kick of heat and moreish notes. We only opted for medium hot but hey, be
my guest and ask for their hottest level if you are game for heat. The best
part of this has yet to come. Now one can order a portion of oozing hot Cheese sauce, which we did, and add
this on to the bag of Louisiana seafood boil.
*Cheese sauce is free of charge from now till 31 October 2017
Cheese sauce… it’s literally da
bomb! Creamy and cheesy, the cheese sauce paired so well with the Southern Bang
sauce. As we watch the cheese sauce being poured over the seafood, our mouths
were literally salivated as the combination is utterly irresistible with the
seafood and sauces.
and sweet seafood, drenched in unbelievably creamy and spicy sauces, will make
you want to keep eating. Mopping up all the saucy goodness with the Fried Mantou makes this even better. Just
in case you need your rice, the Shallot
Rice is also yummy on its own or with the sauces!

Crab, King White Prawns, Squid, Mussels, Hamaguri Clams, Corn and Broccoli.
Garlic Butter has always been a crowd pleaser at Crab Factory. Diners can
expect loads of buttery garlicky flavours in the lot of the seafood. It’s a sauce
that pleases most palates as it enhances the sweetness of the seafood.

#2 in Southern Bang Sauce
(Medium Hot) also has lots of seafood such as Meat Crab (2 pcs XL), Mini
Lobsters, Freshwater Prawns, Jumbo Sweet Prawns and Corn. This one is an
explosion of firework flavours in the mouth and had us at Hello!
King Crab (1 pc XXL) with Salted Egg Sauce (RM298)
about a Malaysian classic, Crab Factory
is introducing its own version of Salted
Egg Sauce. We had the ala carte King
Crab with Salted Egg Sauce. This order even comes with corn, potato and fried
Crab Factory’s version of Salted Egg Sauce has more oomph of
spices to deepen the salted egg note. Lusciously creamy and spicy, the salted
egg sauce proved to be a matched for the sweet flesh of the King Crab as well
as the other bag buddies. We also enjoyed mopping up this sauce with the mantou.
King Crab, there’s Red Lobster, Crab, French Brown Crab
and all the other seafood that is available for ala carte order in your choice
new on the menu list, Crab Factory
is introducing lunch specials of Noodles/Rice
from SIXTH Bowl. Ordering is easy, pick a noodle, then select the toppings
and the broth. There’s also rice bowls too.
Mix Balls (RM13.5) with Mi Xian in
Superior Soup was tasty and it even comes with Char Kuey or Yu Tiao. There’s a
generous mix of Fuzhou, Squid Ink & Fish Balls that is bouncy and
delicious. The broth is full of umami notes and the added Char Kuey gave this
noodle extra yum.
also tried the Freshwater Prawns
(RM16.90 + 0.50 for spicy sauce) with Mi Lidi in Special Spicy Broth. It’s not
overly spicy but rather enough heat to awaken your palate for more. This bowl
is really decently priced for the 2 large Freshwater prawns that is sweet and
full of luscious roe.
Crab Factory is also giving back to the community
with its Bowl-IT-Forward program.
Diners get One Free Bouncy Balls Bowl for every 6 bowls purchased when dine-in

at Crab Factory Johor Bahru for now.
Diners can enjoy a long list of BBQ seafood as well as other specials at the
new JB outlet.
BBQ Crab (RM39 per crab) with choice
of Cajun or Garlic. Charred to give the crab a smoky flavour with intensified
sweetness of the crab, this one is excellent for those who enjoys the natural
sweetness of the crustacean.
oysters but prefer them lightly cooked? Feast your eyes on Crab Factory’s 12 BBQ
Oysters (RM69) that comes with 12 different sauces. Best to enjoy them
piping hot, we are reminded again how creative Crab Factory gets with all its different sauces. Hard to choose a
favorite since these aphrodisiacs have different flavours that goes well with
the briny plump oysters.
dish worth sharing is the Best of Both
Worlds (RM56.80) platter. Featuring Crab Factory’s Signature Coke BBQ Lamb Chop, Fried Freshwater Prawns and BBQ King White Prawns with sautéed
vegetable and French fries, this one is unusual twist to the all-time-favorite
surf & turf. The lamb chops were tender, juicy and moreish with a light
tinge of sweetness and smoky aroma.
unusual addition on the menu is the Sotong
Sumbat Coconut (RM33). A dish with a local flavour, the squid is generously
stuffed with a lovely coconut filling, chargrilled till tender and served with
a sweet and spicy sauce on the side.
Fried Quails (RM22.80) warrants a
reorder in my books. Well-marinated and fried till nicely lacquered, it comes
on a bed of crispy rice noodles, topped with sautéed aromatics and a tangy
chili sauce. This one makes a nice addition to the plethora of seafood.
Corn Croquette (RM11.80) may not be spectacular but it’s
decent and great for corn lovers. The kiddies are bound to enjoy this crispy
and creamy croquette well-studded with sweet corn kernels.
but not least, Crab Factory JB also
has some lunch specials. We tried their version of Hainanese Fried Chicken Chop (RM15.50). Crispy fried chicken thigh drenched
in brown sauce and served with crispy potato wedges and sautéed vegetable makes
a decent meal. This lunch special (up to 3pm) also comes with Ice Lemon Tea
& a scoop of Ice Cream.
Crab Factory has just open its sister outlet in
Little Paris at Mount Austin Johor Bahru in August. About time too since
