The title of this post is a reference to Andrea Strong’s review of Fatty Crab where she describes the nasi lemak as “a serious life-altering dish where chicken is slowly poached in some sort of pork fat so that it becomes “cashmere of poultry”. But don’t take it from me, read it for yourself.

Fatty Crab isn’t my favorite restaurant in New York City. In fact, it doesn’t even come close to second tier. That said, I wouldn’t say no if you wanted to go there. The waiters provide more than adequate eye candy to make up for lack of atmosphere.
