The hairy crab season is already here for sometime already, but since I had a lot of seafood at home recently, I decided to try out the hairy crab dishes first instead of feasting the crabs, somehow I need to manage the level of cholesterol I have.

Aside from Xiao Long Bao (小籠包), there is actually a special hairy crab dishes (大閘蟹菜式) that I receommend everyone crab lover to try, which is the Crab paste garlic toast (蟹粉蒜茸飽) from East Ocean (東海海都), at a price of HKD 108 for 6 pieces, it is not low but fair as far as the experiences is concerned, the mix of the crab meat and paste along with a hot garlic toast is truly amazing!


A full spread of rich crab paste on one piece of garlic toast!

And how about the hairy crab Xiao Long Bao (蟹粉小籠包)? I think it is only average, and if you think having too much crab stuff in a meal is no good, there are other dim sums that are worth trying too, a fried version of seafood roll is especially good!


Hairy Crab Xiao Long Bao (蟹粉小籠包): The Meat is not fresh enough, paste not rich enough.


This hairy crab paste wor tip (they don't call it a wor tip but I think it is) is not that good either.


Great fried version of seafood roll (鮮竹卷), great sauce with spring onion.

The branch at Harbour City is well decorated and nicely setup, with settings that allows certain degree of privacy, like this room:

There are other hairy crab dishes anyway at East Ocean, I'll try them out next time, especially the sets.
