EXQUISITE LIVE HAIRY CRABS.....succulent

Do you know when is the best time to indulge fresh water hairy crabs? In China, Autumn (9th till 11th month in the chinese lunar calendar) is the best season when most of the crabs are most succulent and delicious.

But you don't have to fly all the way to Shanghai to savour the hairy crustasen because award winning Shanghai Restaurant in J W Marriott Kuala Lumpur has specially flown them in from that country.

Recently, a group of us (bloggers) were invited to experience variety of palatable dishes made from the hairy crabs in this comfy and relaxing restaurant.
