But the sight of two crab aficionados gleefully feasting on the crustaceans is worth the price to pay.

Crab House Seafood Restaurant seems to be our annual dinner venue to celebrate Papa's birthday.
|Located at Laluan Perajurit 1, Ipoh Garden East|
Derrick loves crabs and insists that the process of tearing apart the shell to dig into the flesh is an integral part of enjoying crabs.
|Cleaned out dish, empty shells, full stomach|
Ever so pampered, I prefer to have the flesh ripped out for me, without having to get my hands dirty.
Fresh, plump and juicy were the crabs, which were imported from Batam, Indonesia, and are currently priced at RM123 per kg.
|Tempting me with some|
Get here early or reserve your table to avoid disappointment as the restaurant is usually packed, especially on weekends.
Happy Birthday, my dearest Papa!
