King crab-good deals?? YVR

I think it's that time of year again since I've been seeing a number of king crabs in restaurants. Where are the best deals in the Lower Mainland. Anyone?

  1. Not in a restauarant, but check your local Costco... they sell boxes of frozen king crab legs. Very easy too, you just steam them until they're warm and serve. Soooo good.

      Just do them at home and save the trouble and money

    2. I was in Chinatown yesterday and saw King Crab for $12.99. This is the store on Gore near Keefer.

      1. So King Crab season is off and running... but I've forgotten how long it lasts. I have a friend coming to town at the end of March. Will they still be able to have King Crab at the great prices we've been seeing?

          I think one or one and half more weeks (this weekend is the last, from what I have been told)....the prices go up incrementally back to astronomical. It still might be a good deal at months end.

            $8.88/lb @ stupidstore on Marine @ Main as of two hours ago.
