Cheng Long Hang 成隆行蟹王府 @ Shanghai, China


Even though it was not crab season during our visit, we still could not resist looking for crab dishes.  One can tell from the name of the restaurant that it specialises in crabs.

Old fashioned Chinese deco, even have live Chinese music.

Since crabs are not in season, we didn’t bother to order whole crabs and instead aim for other interesting crab dishes.

Crab Meat & Roe Jelly – flavour was not strong

Chilled Crab Roe Cake – it was pretty but the flavour didn’t really come outIMG_1753

Crab Roe & Meat – we moved on to the real stuff…tasty!  the black pearls on the side were actually vinegar to be eaten with the crab

IMG_1741 Soft Crab Roe with Vermicelli Sheet (蟹膏银皮) – simply divine! the male crab roe was rich, chewy and full of flavor!IMG_1742

Xiao Long Bao with Crab Roe – very juicy!IMG_1744 And the skin was so thin!IMG_1751 IMG_1746 Somehow I wanted to have scallops that night – generous portion, cooked well.

This restaurant has a few branches.  Reservations is recommended.

I would definitely come again when I crave for crab roe dishes next time.
