Fei Fei Crab 肥肥蟹 @ Straits Quay, Penang.

Fei Fei Crab 肥肥蟹  has a lot of branches nationwide but the one in Straits Quay Penang is fairly new. The crab specialist brings its signature dishes to Penang, offering a big variety of crab and Chinese dishes. The one at Straits Quay can be found next to Half Acre, towards the end of a side at Straits Quay. The menu is big, featuring an array of Chinese stir fries as well as Seafood dishes. Items are highly priced (somewhat exorbitant), if you are ordering the Crab, expect to pay at least Rm 100 per pax (for our case, it was Rm 120 per pax after tax). The quality is alright but we don't see the value in it, there are better places in the state for a Seafood feast.

Ham Sap Crabs 咸湿螃蟹 (Rm 328- XXXL size/ market rate)

Fried Buns 炸馒头 (Rm 12 for 2 pcs)

Crab Meat Tofu 金丝蟹扒豆腐 (Rm 38/ small)

HK Style Chicken 港式口水鸡 (Rm 68/ small)

There were 2 crab sizes for us to choose and we went for the largest one (shortage of supply due to Raya break accordingly); the dish itself costs a whopping RM328. We opted for the best-seller... Ham Sap sauce (salted egg cream sauce) which we did not quite enjoy. There was hint of Salted Egg but the flavor did not really stand out. On the crabs, they were huge but the flesh was not exactly firm and sweet which led us to question its freshness (again, probably due to supply issue for the Raya break). For the price, we really did not find the value in it. The HK Style Chicken was good to spoon over rice but the sauce was a tad too salty towards the end. Chicken was alright, not to say silky smooth but it was quite tender. We really enjoyed the Crab Meat Tofu, save for its price (Rm 38+), the gravy worked well with the Tofu. Overall, we did not think the meal was worth the price and there was no "wow" factor in our opinion... not sure if we ordered the correct dishes though.
