Momma Kong's information
Small, funky Momma Kong's is run by two young brothers and a cousin obsessed with crab. While the compact menu features numerous finger-licking, MSG-free crab classics, opt for the phenomenal chilli crab, its kick and non-gelatinous gravy unmatched in this town. One serve of crab and four giant, fresh mantou (Chinese bread buns) should happily feed two stomachs.
Unlike many other chilli crab joints, you'll find fixed prices, good-value combo deals, and a one-for-one happy hour (5pm to 7.30pm) offering decent beers. Book two days ahead (three days for Friday and Saturday).
