  1. i know BELACAN GRILL used to, but i've not been there in some time.

    Belacan Grill
    190th and Anza in Redondo Beach

    if you call KUALA LUMPUR ahead of time, sometimes they will do it for you if you leave a CC#.

    Kuala Lumpur - Malaysian Restaurant
    69 W. Green Street
    Pasadena, CA 91105
    (626) 577-5175

    SEA HARBOUR SEAFOOD on rosemead does their own rendition of the pepper crab.

    problem is, you can't get the sri lankan or singaporean crab here that makes this dish so unbelieveable (or least i haven't; would love to know if someone has).

    i usually end up making it at home. it's great with lobster too.

    let us know how you fare.

      Someone posted a few weeks ago that Kuala Lumpur closed down... oh well...

    2. YAZMIN
      27 East Main Street
      (626) 308-2036

      *They have durian at various times of the year, so enter at your own risk.

      1. ipse...

        i was at yazmin about four weeks ago (thought it was just okay). no chilli crab or any crab on the menu. i also asked. they said no chilli or pepper crab. didn't try the chilli shrimp.

          You sure?

          I know I've had it there before, although it's been a couple years since I've been. Ever since the remodeling and the invasion of the Edwards Cinema, that whole area is sort of a zoo ...

          1. Try the May Flower in LA Chinatown 685 N. Spring Street(near corner of Ord St.). Their their "house special" crab or lobster is made with lots of garlic and chilis--probably close to what you're looking for.

              the mayflower crab is delicious, but not like s'pore style chili crab.
