Boiling Crawfish (New) Outer Sunset
- Lori SF Jan 19, 2008 06:07 PM
I saw this just the other day, just opened Cajun- Creole style shrimp, crawfish, crab, oysters, beer and wine. On Irving at 24th Ave. in the former Ha's Chinese or Ho's place.
Any reports yet?
I am curious to know where the crawfish is coming from.
re: Lori SF
I tried it on Thursday night. It is part of the same Boiling Crawfish chain in Sacramento and San Jose. The manager of this new location was brought over from San Jose. Amazingly, she opened this new location in 15 days - got the keys on Jan 1 and opened on Jan 16!
We were informed the crawfish are flown over every other day from Louisiana. She personally goes to SFO in the morning to inspect all the crawfish and toss out any dead ones.
My roommate and I each got 1-lb of crawfish with 3 corn on the cob pieces and 6 half-links of sausage. He got the spicy heat and I got medium. Total came to $20 each - $12 per lb of crawfish and $0.50 for each piece of corn or sausage.
I'm not a very descriptive writer so you can read his review on Yelp instead. My abbreviated review is that it was very tasty, a great bargain for the food, and we'll definitely be going back.
Some of the commenters on SF eater seemed mystified by the location and the connection with Asians, but if you've been to Shanghai lately you'll find that crawfish is more popular than watermelons these days over there, with crawfish restaurants popping up on almost every street corner over the last two years. Beijing is said to have gone through a similar craze.
