There is a hole-in-a-wall kind of Chinese restaurant near where my parents live that is famous for its crab dish. I believe it is called kepiting saos Padang, though if you just order their crab dish, you will pretty much be served the one and only crab dish of the house. I am not a big fan of crab due to of all the hard work involved just to get to the measly amount of meat, but boy, do I LOVE that sauce! This crab dish always comes with a plateful or mantou (Chinese steamed buns), which is just perfect to mop up all the yummy sauce, and the bowl of steaming white rice doesn’t hurt either. So, naturally I have been on the hunt for recipe that can recreate this sauce.
Enter Dedy from Dentist Chef, a food blogger friend who has a trove of incredibly delicious dishes that make my mouth waters every time I visit his blog. Long story short, I read through his lobster with sweet and sour chili sauce recipe, and somehow I had a hunch that this recipe must be it! And sure enough, I was right, Dedy’s recipe is the closest one yet to the sauce from kepiting saos Padang, woohoo. So, a big BIG thank you Dedy. Now I can make this lovely sauce whenever I want. You can read the recipe here, but I take no credit whatsoever okay? Go check out Dedy’s blog, it is just great!
