Actually, I'm not a crab eater. But since this is the signature food from Balikpapan, so everyone will ask you to bring this food. They have some choice of flavor, include padang sauce and black pepper sauce.

Kepiting Lada Hitam (Black pepper crab) here is extraordinary. Tasty to the meat inside. I brought the crab to Jakarta, just call them for order and you can pick up on they way to the Airport.

I want to keep my memory and enjoy the moment with their black... More

Dining area is OK. Food quality is fine. The spices are not really 'out-of-this-world' but doable, so the taste are OK too. A little bit pricey for the Crab, but the Crab are Huge.
