Hairy crab season this year started off for me with Hairy Crab Roe dishes from 上海姥姥 Shanghai Lao Lao.
There are so many branches in Hong Kong.

I was captivated by their Hairy Crab roe poster at Wong Tai Sin and all over the MTR stations.

As I was in Causeway Bay the other day, I went there with friends and we had other dishes as well.
++++++++
Sliced Pork Terrine:

Started with this classic terrine where the jelly melts in your mouth while the pork bits are really tasty.
++++++++
Mung Bean Noodles with Shredded Chicken:

This one was my favourite, springy mung bean noodles in a thick peanut and sesame dressing complimented by refreshing julienne cucumber.
++++++++
Smoked Fish with Mixed Spices:

The fish was crisp and sweet with a play of spices that were not spicy.
++++++++
Noodles with Hairy Crab Roe:

I love noodles and these have to be eaten asap while it is hot and delicious.
There was so much crab roe to cover every strand of noodle.
++++++++
Assorted Mushrooms wrapped in Crispy Bean Curd Sheet with Hairy Crab Roe:

This had to be the star of the show, the dish that was advertised on the poster, it was crispy with juicy mushrooms in the middle served with a generous pile of crab roe to compliment it.
++++++++
Scrambled Egg White with Hairy Crab Roe:

Another classic dish was the scrambled egg white covered in an abundance of crab roe, great with rice.
++++++++
Steamed Pork Dumplings with Hairy Crab Roe:

The pork dumplings are a must in Shanghai cuisine and these were bursting with rich crab roe and pork in the middle.
++++++++
Mini Glutinous Rice Balls in Fermented Rice Wine Soup:

Dessert ended with a sweet touch of soft chewy glutinous rice balls in sweet fragrant osmanthus flowers and rice wine soup.
++++++
Finished with the warming Fresh Lemonade with Ginger and Honey and the Chrysanthemum tea with Wolfberries and Honey.
