I love crab but there are not many Japanese crab specialists about. There is one in Wanchai called Kanizen but the set does not offer as much crab as this set.The Klwame crab set costs $1088 for one or $2176 for two which is really good because you can indulge on your own or if you are in groups of 3s or 5s it can be catered for.
Before they begin, they will bring over a tray of crabs to show you which crabs you will be eating.
Started with the assorted appetizer which had cherry tomato stuffed with mozzarella cheese, crab tomalley infused tofu, whelk, duck breast and cucumber with crab tomalley.
Next came the stewed wintermelon topped with truffle and parma ham which was nice and appetizing.
The next course was the crab and sashimi which were all fresh and tasty. I liked the way there were sliced fruit beneath the sashimi which helped to balance the heaviness of the sashimi.
The steamed egg was topped with lots of crab meat and salmon roe. The egg was silky flavoured by the bursting saltiness of the salmon roe.
The next course was the abalone which was soft and the sauce was very sweet.
Now to the star of the show which was the steamed crab.
The crab meat was sweet and juicy and there was so much tomalley there. Next were the grilled crab shells and legs, again more tomalley and this time it was chunky crab meat inside the King Crab legs.
The last course was steamed rice with crab meat mixed with truffle and edamame beans which left me full and satisfied.
For dessert, It was Matcha warabi but I was too full for it.
