We seldom write about food in our Photosafari Travel blog even though we love food. Perhaps we should be writing about the food we ate in our travels around the world. This occasion is slightly different. Crab Factory is founded by two of our regular PMPE participants, TY Ooi and June Yap.

We have shared many travel experiences together and we know that TY’s inclination to good food was legendary. I remembered one day she was searching for a restaurant selling pork dishes on our Silk Road Trip around Xinjiang. That endeavour took her almost two hours in a predominantly Muslim community.

It was during one of her travels to Los Angeles that she discovered the taste of Cajun style of seafood preparation.  When she came back she was full of enthusiasm that she cooked us a dinner. That was when the idea of Crab Factory took its roots.

Crab Factory was the result of almost 6 months of planning, execution and fine tuning of the food taste to suit our local dinners. I did not realise that cooking was so difficult. I knew that she had a long and difficult journey to bring you the authentic food culture from Louisiana right down to the music and décor.

What is Food Culture of Louisiana?

Louisiana is a land rich with culture, music and cuisine. Cajun food comes from theSouthern parts of Louisiana and Mississippi. Since Cajun people are so close to the Gulf of Mexico, seafood is featured prominently in local cuisine. Favorites are crawfish, catfish, crabs, prawns and oysters.

Crab Factory Opening

Crab Factory recently opened its doors to the public on 10th January 2014. The response and support from the public were beyond expectation.

Want to find out more about what this Cajun seafood is all about? Make your way to SS2, Petaling Jaya. You need to book your reservation to avoid disappointment.
