Fatty Crab

The low-key decor at this Malaysian-inspired joint belies the incredible food. Grown-up family-style dishes may include "fatty duck"—boiled and fried, then dusted with sugar—and Dungeness crab that's been steamed and bathed in a chili-based syrup. But you may find yourself coveting children's-menu items like "fish fry in a box," lightly battered strips of fish propped up in a red takeout container, with ailoi and tamarind ketchup on the side. Bonus: On weekdays (excluding holidays), kids eat free.
