Looking for Great Chinese Seafood place with live King Crab
My boyfriend's birthday is coming up next week. He has declined my invitation to Manresa for a nice dinner but wants a great Chinese seafood meal instead. I know his favorite is King Crab and since the season is just starting I thought it would be great to take him to a place that has it.
The two restaurants that I have in mind are Hong Kong Saigon in Sunnyvale and Koi Place in Daly City. I am hoping CH-ers can help me decide or suggest another place. Thanks in advance.
Does anyone have any opinions on eating fresh seafood at Koi Palace or Hong Kong Saigon (since the reviews on Zen and ABC have only been mediocre)? I am probably going to spend a good amount just on this King Crab and I wanna make sure they do it right.
I normally enjoy R&G but they don't have King Crab.
Other than the first post in that chowdown report from Zen Pen, the other accounts of the king crab feast sounded quite positive. It's been a while since I've been to either, but I'd pick Zen Peninsula over Hong Kong Saigon for live seafood. Koi P is probably the safest bet though.
