Bangi eatery stands out with signature crab dishes

One of the tempting crab dishes at Ketam Viral.

A RESTAURANT specialising in Malaysian-style crab dishes and seafood favourites is covering all corners of the country with its signature items.

Crab lovers will surely savour its Ketam Iban, Ketam Di Raja (its take on ketam masak lemak cili api), Crab Lurpak Buttermilk, Chilli Crabs, Ketam Berlado, Ketam Kam Heong, Ketam Kari 21 Hari, Ketam Juseyo (its take on Korean-influenced flavours) and Ketam Portuguese.

The eatery named Ketam Viral also offers Laksa Siakap, Chef’s Flower Tofu and Nasi Lemak Alai wrapped individually in banana leaves.

The flavours of the seafood dishes are brought together by Wan Mohd Rathnor and his team.

To make dining even more convenient, the restaurant offers the Ketam Valet aka Ketam “Bae” option – which takes over the messy job of cracking crabs for customers.

Ketam Viral is constantly working with chefs, connoisseurs and content creators from different parts of Malaysia to grow its offerings and enable crab lovers to sample even more dishes from other states and regions in the future.

Wan has worn many hats in his two-decade career and is currently the vice-president of Kedah Chef Association.

He was recognised by the association with a Medal of Honour in 2019 for his contribution to state culinary programmes and brands.

Ketam Viral is in the midst of obtaining halal certification.

Located in Sunway Gandaria in Section 9 of Bangi, Selangor, Ketam Viral offers a spacious bespoke venue designed to bring people together whether for a large gathering or an intimate affair.
