Restaurant Jia Hian 佳香饭店 @ Taman Merak Jaya , Simpang Ampat, Penang

Restaurant Jia Hian 佳香饭店 @ Taman Merak Jaya

At this moment, i am seriously craving for crab, especially baked crab. But just for today, i intro something different from what cannot find at other place. Special Claypot crab rice which i looking for it long time ago at hidden residential area at Tambun, Penang. This is really a new food found. I called up all my family to hunt for it, as this shop is not far from my place for our weekend lunch. Claypot crab rice is much more tasty than baked. The crab is remain fresh and juicy even after put in cook with claypot, not the dry type found on baked crab. You can imagine how the crab juicy on your mounts. Unpredictable!
