Hairy Crab For HKD 48 @ Hong Kong

During my last trip to Hong Kong last week, it was the end of the hairy crab season.
For those who don’t know what is Hairy Crab, it is actually almost the same like other types of crabs but they are hairy. Haha

Since it was only HKD48 which is around RM 23, so we decided to give it a try.

Don’t really know how it was cook but seems to be just steam it.
It is served with a rich ginger and vinegar sauce.

Hairy crab have a lot of hair on their legs and their pincers have hair as well, which is as thick as seaweed.

However the size is quite small.
Actually for these crab, we only eat the soft and creamy roe.

There are steps to open up the crab shell.
The owner of the restaurant do actually teach and demo to us how to eat the crap. ^_^

Look at the roe man!!

Here also got meat.
Need to squeeze it out as there is not much meat to eat already.

After more than 15 minutes, the session done!! This is what left behind.

Actually the cooking is quite nice, and we did order other dishes as ..

All of them are nice too.
May be it is because of the cold weather outside.
Now it had drop to 11 degree celsius.. grrr….. freezing!!
