Boiling Crab in SGV

I love the Boiling Crab in Garden Grove. I saw a sign that a new one was opening on Valley Blvd. If anyone knows when it is opening, I will be one of the first ones there.

  1. I just saw the sign today too. But I'm sorry to ask... What is Boiling Crab? What kind of food do they serve? Crab I assume. But what kind of cuisine? Thank you. ^^

      Basically it's Seafood such as crab, shrimp, crawfish, etc,..seasoned with 3 ways: garlic +butter, lemon pepper or cajun seasoning...or all 3 which is the whole she-bang (recommended) and different levels of spiciness. All seafood are bought by the pound and get ready to get your hands dirty and wear a bib.
