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.
