As the seasons change, we return to Crazy Fish, where the one-of-a-kind seafood selection flown into Malaysia from South Korea for summer has evolved slowly but steadily since our springtime visits. Earlier entries on Crazy Fish: May 18 & May 20.

Baby Octopus

Baby octopus remains a mainstay of Crazy Fish’s menu; besides the popular sannakji & pan mee preparations, it’s now also available in a light soup with veggies (RM40) that tastes pretty pleasant & wholesome in the manner of East Asian clear broths.

Korean Crabs

Feeling crabby? Crustaceans from Korean waters can relate; not the fabulously fleshy sort, but no lack of juices in them.

Frogfish, regarded by some as the ugliest fish in the ocean. At Crazy Fish, the much-maligned frogfish is chopped up & broiled in a gargantuan, spicy serving (RM80). The fish is meaty & tender, though it seems to have bones sticking out in weird places.

Korean “Paella”

The remainder of the thick sauce from the frogfish platter is fried up with rice in a recipe that’s Korea’s close cousin to paella.

Sea Squirts

Sea squirts? Creatures from Crazy Fish’s tanks, also known as ‘sea pineapples,’ another uncommon offering in KL.

6 Crazy Fish Aug 16


Some claim this stinks of ammonia, others say it reeks of iodine, with a pungent brininess to make some flee for oysters.

7 Crazy Fish Aug 16


Halibut’s reasonably enjoyable, with a pleasant chewiness & crunchiness in parts.

Request the banchan side dishes if necessary …
