Mr. Crab

This restaurant is known for its specialty in crabs. Love the black pepper one. "Saos padang" is also good choice. For those who are as lazy as me to break crab shell in order to be able enjoying its meat, crab soup is the best.

Loved the crabs, but watch out for the black pepper ones since they are very spicy. In my opinion this restaurant's cooking for crabs was better than the others. Love the food but the place was mediocre.

If you wish to have crab as your dinner... This resto is the one of the best choice in Balikpapan. The crab is so tasty and a little bit spicy. The crab is also big and fresh.

This crab joint is the among the pioneer crab joint in Balikpapan. It's among the top joint, along with kepiting Dandito. Slightly more expensive, but Bigger Crab! The sweet and sour is also relatively nice, for those enjoys not so sweet delicacy. Try the blackpepper one for spicy taste. The choice is urs, it's equally delish!
