Gourmand in search for a rare dining experience, Tatsu Japanese Cuisine is the place to visit this month. The restaurant welcomes kegani from the island of Hokkaido, well known for its gourmet shellfish also known as horsehair crab. As the name suggests, the furry crab is currently in season and they are flown fresh from the cold waters of Japan sea.
Definitely a must-try, kegani crab is known for its succulent sweet meat. With over two decades of culinary skills, Chef Tetsuya Yanagida guide to take on the kegani is – less is more. He keeps the kegani crab dishes simple to retain the natural flavours and tenderness of the meat that really does not require much.
Relish in the sweetness of the shellfish with recommendation such as steamed kegani crab with lemon and ponzu sauce; grilled kegani crab with salt and lemon; or kegani crab hot pot with vegetables and yosenabe sauce. Hokkaido kegani also packs up more kani-miso, the flavourful green paste found inside the shell of the body perfect for accompaniment with the meaty flesh.
Kegani crab promotion is available from 1 to 31 October priced at RM350++ per portion.
