Best Crab place in LA
Anyone know of any places good to eat Crab? I use to like going to chinese places or Crustaceans for their crab. But there's gotta be some other place that has even better?
Anyone know of any?
Personally I don't think it gets better than live crab at a Chinese restaurant. What else could you ask for? Live crab, multiple ways of cooking it, and inexpensive.
Just had a live King crab two ways for $140 (7 pounder at $20/pound). It was awesome!
What kind of crab (or style of preparation) are you looking for?
Crab cakes? My vote goes to Water Grill.
Soft-shell crabs? R23
Crab tempura? Matsuhisa
Whole live crab? Seafood Village in Temple City or Monterey Park.
I second the Chinese restaurants. Try Newport or Capital as well. They bring them out to you live before they go into the steamer. I don't think anyone can beat them for freshness, cooking sauces at any price.
