Project-κ 11: Famous Seremban Baked / BBQ Crabs @ Seremban Seafood Village

Another highlight of Project-κ! This is one of Seremban hidden jewel! Forget about Seremban siew pow, Seremban baked a.k.a. BBQ crabs (siew hai) are another thing to die for!

Siew hai is very popular among tourists and locals and once aired on 8TV's Ho Chiak! food dining programme before.

This dish can be found in the row of restaurants along Jalan Tuanku Munawir, but one that is famous for it is Seremban Seafood Village, which is right next to Soong Kee Ipoh Kueh Teoh at Wai Kwai Choi foodcourt.

PS: I took the above picture in the morning after I had breakfast next door. Hence, explains why the gates are still locked. :P

Though quite pricey (RM45.00 for 1 kg of crabs - I was told, previously was RM40.00 per kg), Seremban siew hai is undoubtedly very very delicious! It is baked with sweet, salty sauce that sticks like syrup on the crabs' shell. However, the natural sweetness is not overpowered by it. Depending on the season, crabs served may be big/small, fat/thin. The ones I had were medium in size and there was quite a lot of meat as well as roe in it.

The crabs are served with this homemade chilli dipping sauce which is totally A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I can swear to God that it is sooooooo good that I can easily pour all of them to a bowl of rice and eat it just as such! Which I did! LOL! This chilli sauce is filled with chopped chilli, garlic, onions and God-knows-what-else secret recipe. It is not hot at all, just sour and sweet, perfect for eating any seafood with it!

Besides siew hai, Seremban Seafood Village is also famous for other dishes namely: Marmite crabs, Salted Egg crabs, XO sauce prawns (lai nui har), and many others. Would just need to cover again on my next trip! XD

Below is the best map I can find but too bad that is not the exact location. Seremban Seafood Village is right at the end of Jalan Tuanku Munawir, in between Jalan Lobak and Jalan Veloo. Well, at least with this map, you'll know where Jalan Tuanku Munawir is. :)
