Fook Yuen: Best in Crabs Since 1988 (Banawe Quezon CIty)

Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines

Our fourth stop for our Experience the Northern Bite is one that I'm sure the family would love.  Fook Yuen takes pride in having the best crabs since 1988.  In our family, crabs are considered to be one of the celebratory dishes.  It's as special as lechon, steak and lobster that is usually present during occasions.  So naturally, I have a positive inclining towards crabs that got me all excited when I saw their sign board.

That lady with the huge DSLR lens is Jill of  I don't think I've shared this yet.  Back when I was in college, there was a talk about blogging and Jill was the speaker in food blogging.  I got inspired so much that I started my blog right after.

Most Chinese restaurants I've been to that serve crabs are more upscale.  Believe it or not, for me a place like this is more comfortable to eat some crabs.  It reminds me of home.  And, home is where I really get my hands dirty without any restraints.

Fook Yuen Crabs (Seasonal Price)

When it comes to crabs, I prefer it cookd simply either steamed, boiled or fried.  I don't usually go for saucy ones.  But the Fook Yuen Crabs is unlike the other sauced crabs I've tried!  The creaminess and sweet coconut milk blend is so addictive. The crabs are cooked with precision too.  We've been told that their crabs are freshly delivered live everydayI also discovered that farm-raised crabs are tasteless so their crabs are sustainably caught fresh from the sea.

Fried Crab with Salt and Pepper (Seasonal Price)
Of course, if you want to taste crab meat at it's finest, you can't go wrong with the classic Fried Crab with Salt and Pepper.

Oyster Omelette (200 php)
The Oyster Omellete is chunked and loaded with oysters.  This is a good oyster omelette.  But sad to say, the crabs were the star of the show.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Fook Yuen is the place to go if you're craving for crabs.  Chinese-style cooked crabs are among the best out there.
