Hee Kee Crab General is a basic seafood restaurant, nothing fancy, but it was comfortable and clean - which is a priority for us when eating out with our toddler. Service was adequate, and one of the waitstaff was a kind lady who treated us warmly (I think she was infatuated with our 3-year-old boy). The crabs are stored in the tanks at the front of the restaurant, and we chose the crab doomed for our appetites. It was weighed, and we were told how much it would cost. One crab was plenty big enough for two people, especially since each crab came with a side dish.
Saying hello to our lunch:
We chose our side dish and ordered an additional dish, and both arrived at the table before the crab.
Fried Mince Pork and Lotus Root - quite greasy, but the pork was tasty and the lotus root crunchy. Hubby and I were expecting something similar to the lotus pork sandwich we had at another Cantonese restaurant:
We chose Yeung Chow fried rice as the side dish that came with the crab, for the boy's lunch. This fried rice was pretty average - everything was quite plain, even the shrimps were tasteless:
Steamed Crab with Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaves - lovely sweet crab meat to be found within the shells. The sticky rice was yummy, but very salty. We resorted to mixing the plain-tasting fried rice with the salty glutinous rice, and then I couldn't stop eating the rice:
If we come back to this restaurant, we'll stick with its specialty: crab. Perhaps we'll go for their famous typhoon shelter crab.
