    Abang Kepiting

    Buckets of iced fish, stingray, squid and prawns out front are begging to be steamed, fried or grilled to your liking. Treat yourself to an experience and dive into a pile of smoked crabs: a full-body, all-evening affair. Come early as it's extremely popular. Prices (by weight) vary enormously depending on the type of fish and the day's catch.

    Not to be confused with Apollo to the left, the sign on which proudly states, 'Since 1968. Never moved.' Polo's sign retorts simply, 'Moved from next door'. The dispute is as legendary as the noodles they serve. Draw your own conclusions about which is the best…or oldest.
