Restoran New Wong Poh,

It has been quite some time I have not had butter crab in KL. The last memory is still vividly in my mind. To refresh my mind again, I decided to dine in Restoran New Wong Poh. I found this restaurant by just typing "Butter Crab in KL" and this restaurant name was listed 6 out of 10 results in the first page. This restaurant must be real good!
Lala in Superior Soup @RM12.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 3/5 - I know I am here with the main objective of feasting on their butter crab but their Lala in superior soup is something you really shouldn't miss. It is the best starter to have before the crab. Their superior soup is really full of lala taste in it with a wine kick. Extremely delicious. Apart of that, the lala meat is fat and chewy. The best part is the lala is fresh. So don't let yourself blinded by their butter crab and miss this superior soup.

Butter Crab @RM55.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - Here is the main character for today and first of all, I need to comment about their price. During their weekdays, they have this special crab promo which is only RM55 for 2 crabs. Each crab weight at least 500gm. It is so worth it. As for the taste, I really like their creamy, smooth, milky, buttery and delicious gravy. It is so perfectly blend into their fat crab meat which is so fresh and sweet. The best part of the gravy is the curry leaf. That's the main reason why the gravy is so fragrant. Without the curry leaves, it is just another ordinary gravy like any other restaurant. No wonder they are so famous. You will definitely lick your finger in the end and finish up the whole claypot of gravy like drinking it like a soup. I am not exaggerating.

Mantou @RM0.90/pc
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - You definitely do not need rice to accompany with the crab. You need their mantou. You can choose to deep fried them or steam. I personally highly recommend you to choose the deep fried ones. The sensation feeling when you sink your teeth in the mantou with the crispy crust on the outer area and the soft in the inside.


When you dip into their butter gravy sauce, it will be even better. The mantou will absorb all the gravy that it could and release them all when you sunk your teeth into the mantou. Absolutely divine experience. For your information, you can add additional butter gravy with a cost of RM3.00/bowl. The bowl size is as you can see from the picture above. Overall, my crab experience in this restaurant is unforgettable. I will not hesitate to come back to this restaurant for their butter crab even I have to dine in alone. It is that GOOD! P.S: Parking here is a pain. Do come as early as 6.00pm to avoid this problem.
