Hairy Crab in Shanghai
We're in Shanghai for the first time in several years this week for the womens' world cup and have a pretty specific question we're hoping someone can help with. We've been all through the boards already doing research for this trip (xlb at jjtb today was fantastic--we'll likely do 2 or 3 times while here!) and headed to Xiao Nan Guo tonight.
Hairy Crab. We've read that this is one of several things to make sure to try when here in Autumn but then someone here at our hotel said it's still too early (which we're hoping isn't true since we're only here until October 1st).
Where would hounds recommend going for this? price isn't important. neither is decor/atmosphere. most interested in the best food (of course!).
And, is it really too early? If so, not worth getting?
A little late for this reply but as you probably have found out already it's still early for hairy crabs. Unfortunately for you this is a great year for crabs (well, not really **for** them, but for people who like them) as the harvest is expected to be plentiful. Next year is another story as government control is set to come into effect and the harvest will be cut in half.
