Thanks to the ease of transportation, people now travel ever more often and bring back exciting ideas that might only exist half a globe away to where you live. An example would be Crab Factory: Original Louisiana Boil in SS2 that is founded on the inspiration of the dining experience in many seafood restaurants in the Louisiana, US.

Crab Factory Interior

Located in SS2, Crab Factory takes on a cosy, modern approach to seafood dining. The restaurant is air-conditioned, capable of seating approximately 50 patrons. Since the restaurant can fill up quite easily especially during peak hours and weekends, it is recommended to make reservation beforehand.

Crabs in bag

Food here is served in a plastic bag, that is our medium sized meat crabs in Signature Southern Bang sauce (RM159/kg(2 pcs)). The sauce tastes a little like Sze Chuan Chili Oil where the spiciness comes with a numbing finishing.  There are 3 variation of spiciness: mild, medium or death valley! It is essentially a spicy sauce, so even the mild setting gives a fiery kick. You may also choose to have the seafood prepared in lemon pepper or garlic butter sauce.

Regardless of the choice of sauce, the most important thing in ensuring an enjoyable seafood meal is the freshness of the seafood itself. For this, we have not a single rant. The crabs we had were packed with natural sweetness infused with zest from the spicy sauce.

In terms of price, it is rather on the high side as there are other restaurants that offer comparable quality. Nevertheless, it is a good spot for new experience in a thoughtfully furnished environment. The restaurant also serves fresh yabbies, prawns, New Zealand mussels, Japanese snails and scallops. If you crave good seafood yet want to try something other than your usual seafood spot, why not give it a try?
