Boiling Crab

I've been photographing food since 2007. I launched this blog in 2010. So as you can imagine, I have folders and folders of pics just waiting for their 5 sentences of fame. So here goes...

"Make a cow happy... Eat seafood!!" 

Warning: If you dislike eating with your fingers, this place is not for you. Aka - Expect to work for your grub. That said, there are items on the menu that don't require digging and peeling (i.e. - fish and chips), but who orders fried seafood at a fresh seafood place? (I hope not you).

Back in the day, when "boiling crab" was known just as a task, my old coworkers and I trekked to the SGV to curb our crab craving. After being promptly seated (something that's apparently unheard of nowadays at all five of the SoCal locations), we ordered two baggies of these friendly critters swimming in delicious spices (hi shrimpies!) and two orders of king crab legs. We also tossed in a side of sweet potato fries as if we weren't greedy enough. Needless to say, we were stuffed beyond satisfaction.

Shrimp in the whole Sha-Bang (lemon pepper, garlic butter, and rajun cajun seasonings) in medium heat

The carnage
 Fresh seafood dunked in delicious spices, a cold beer, good company... what more can you ask for? If you haven't tried this place, it's time, my friends.

  • They don't take reservations so if you're a group of 4 or more, the wait to be seated could push ridiculous limits. 
  • Unless you like to REALLY work for your food (and little of it too), I would suggest against ordering the crawfish. 
  • They give you a bib. Wear it. Even if you think you're "too man" for it, wear it. Trust.
