I heard high taste about this restaurant, but apparently it is avarage, something that you can find in other seafood restaurant. They serve crab with asam manis and lada hitam as their signature dishes. But i would say lada hitam better. The price also standard for crab or seafood, maybe a bit high but reasonable. The restaurant bulding and interior itself are flat, i believe people coming here for only eat, nothing else.

Love the blackpepper crab! its a must when you visit balikpapan. they even open in the morning, so when you want on your way to the airport, you can buy as a gift from balikpapan. They even wrap in a box, so its easier for you to hand carry!

the kepiting lada hitam is to die for!
frankly, it tastes better than dandito.

I usually buy half portion when I eat there, and take away 1 portion to Jakarta.
The packing is neat, and doesn't smell a thing, so it's not an issue to bring it in airplane cabin.

In Balikpapan there is few good restaurants, well this is one of them.. my first choice seafood restaurants after Dandito, they served many seafoods but i recommend the crabs, because they specialized in this menu..

The best is i can put phone order the same day on morning and pick it up while going back to the airport. It even taste fresh crab meat even i ate it later that same night. I bought with me one and half portion of black pepper crabs. The meat is fresh and easily ate. Prepared for the hot from the black pepper spices. Will return for another trip.
