Soft shells are back at Full Kee

  • j

If my fellow Chowhounds can keep it to themselves, I will let on that Full Kee, my favorite Chinese dive in Chinatown DC, is again serving their ethereal soft-shell crabs. My favorite preparation is fried, tempura style, but they are also stir-fried with ginger with scallion.

Full Kee is on H Street between 5th and 6th credit cards, no liquor, no style...just great food.

If they run out on my next visit, I will really regret this post.

      Well somebody ate them....I went with friends for lunch yesterday and they didn't have any. They claimed that they weren't in the market, but we were very disappointed. I hope that this isn't a trend.

          Mixed success recently....had them Wednesday evening (last order) but they were out on Thursday lunch. Call first and try to reserve them. Jim Zurer Washington DC
