Village Voice's Description

This obscurely located East Village gem Masak offers a menu that overlaps with Fatty Crab's. Thus there is a version of the celebrated Malaysian dish chile crab. Only instead of wrestling shell-on crustaceans, you get a spicy dip of lump crabmeat furnished with mantou, little rolls shaped like bread, but tasting more like donuts. Other recommended dishes in this bistro that looks like the inside of a Victorian house include a crisp-skinned half chicken (called "devil chicken") in thick palm-syrup sauce, a chile-roasted pork chop of mind-boggling size smothered in pea shoots and sautéed onions, and an oddball starter of spice-rubbed chicken hearts. Desserts are similarly fab.

Tips from foursquare

    Don’t miss the Rendang Burger, a dense, spicy beef patty topped with a melting layer of Cabot clothbound cheddar and served alongside gingery fries. Via CityEats.com

  • Kaya toast is grilled brioche with thick coconut custard. Fragrant Singaporean chili crab is interpreted as a crab cake mixed with tomato-y chili crab sauce and served with shredded apple salad.

    The food here is awful. The only tip I can give is to go somewhere else. I wanted this place to be good but sadly it wasn't.

    Definitely the crab dip! Each dessert is better than the next - hard to choose.

    Try the Singaporean-inspired food.
