Crab Factory: Original Louisiana Boil

Offering a much-needed breath of fresh air amongst KL’s many new twee cafés and fancy coffee joints is Crab Factory, a no-frills seafood restaurant that pays tribute to the remarkably robust flavours of Louisiana. Inspired by the communal seafood boil get-togethers that are part and parcel of southern American festivities, Crab Factory is all about dishing up a liberal serving of tantalising Cajun-style crustaceans emptied directly onto long dining tables and shared among friends.

Crawfish and crabs are the star attractions at this eccentrically decorated eatery, which is renowned for its piquant, must-try Signature Southern Bang sauce. Pair the lip-smacking seafood mains with Louisiana delicacy gumbo, a hearty soup dish with sausages, shrimp and rice, as well as pleasingly spicy Cajun fried chicken wings.

Address: 21 Jalan SS2/64

Coming from the border of Louisiana, I can say that this food is pure garbage. Mediocre cooking at best. Not even close to what Louisiana has to offer. Also doesn't even come with proper sauces, customers need to pay for a tiny packet of dipping sauce, RM 3.50. Ain't even close to cajun cooking either. Just sprinkles of cayenne pepper on top of the food. Plus the food doesn't taste fresh either. And caution about the juices, do read the expiration date because ours came expired.
