Restoran King Crab (Again!) & FBB's surprise

Yes, I realise I spoke of this place very recently. Actually, just 2 posts away. Plus point, I'll be less longwinded. Nevertheless, let me whizz through a little mood setting small talk then we salivate speedily over the usual delicious pictures (ahem). Plus plus plus until infinity point, there's a intoxicating surprise towards the end.

Promise.

There they were, Wmw, Precious Pea, Boolicious ,Tankiasu and Handsome Jackson waiting patiently for me at the restaurant. Luckily I made it on time. Way past the appointment time but just right before the dishes appeared. =P
Precious Pea, the undisputed president of the fan club of King Crab whose song of praises for this place knows no bounds (Note to restaurant: Give her a VVIP card already!), had ordered. Since Handsome Jackson aka Action Jackson have never been there before, we had a few of the restaurant's favourite dishes ie. similar to what I have had but trust me, no complaints here.

Hak-Beh Khuat (Guinnese Pork Ribs)Ngai-Yau Hai (Buttered Crabs) & Mantau (Plain Dumplings)Ham-Tan Sotong (Salted Egg Yolk Squids)The other 3 dishes new to me here were:-

Vegetables Wrapped with Fishmeat. The actual name of this dish escapes us. Each lump consisted of fishmeat on the outer layer holding in some hard vegetables I suspect were chopped carrots and stuff.

Interesting presentation with the fried fish frame (still has meat on it) and small chunks of Honeydew Melon in the sauce. However, I am not too keen on this dish as I can taste mustard in its sauce. Not a fan. The others enjoyed it though.2-Way Kailan. One part stir-fried, the other deep fried.Sweet & Sour Prawns. Tasted like Prawns cooked in Black Soya Sauce to me. Fresh and delicious but would be better if the individual prawns sizes did not differ so much.Our bill:-The address:-
Time for dessert

C A U T I O N:
Durian Intolerants (is there's such a group?), please leave now for the sake of your appetite, health & sanity.

I was very surprised to know dessert will be served by
Fatboy Bakes! This versatile baker made a Durian Tiramisu just for us! He did not join us for dinner but instead purposely drove over to personally deliver the cake. C'mon people. Here's the cue to go 'awwws...'.

Since we were not sure how the air-conditioned restaurant will react to 'outside food' with strong smell, we decided to fake that it was Jackson the Man's birthday! We shaked his hand, sang the obligatory song and let him cut the cake. Hehe. Oh, for effect, we turned papparazzi on him too!

Pose, b'day boy, pose.
Hold it hold it, just 1 more shot.
Tired arm? Gosh, u are getting 'old' huh.
7 of us (phitoy came to join while Fatboy Bakes preferred to watch us devour his masterpiece) savoured this rich brandy soaked mascorpane cheesed durian layered with hardened chocolate top (droolsville yet again):-
Fatboy Bakes where to apply to be your permanent guinea pig?
