Boiling Crab in San Jose

Boiling Crab just opened in San Jose. It's a chain that's been very popular in Orange County and Houston. We had the crawfish, blue crab and Dungeness crab. The flavors were excellent, very spicy, and the seafood was not overcooked. The crab was really meaty and fresh. Overall I was really impressed. I haven't tried Crawdaddy, the other popular crawfish cajun boil restaurant in SJ. Any thoughts on how it compares??

  1. Haven't been there, but definitely interested in giving it a try - where is it located?

    1. Thanks for the heads up. There are a few Crawdaddy reports in the link below, but no comparison yet ... anyone?

      Fat Tuesday is next week. Seems like a good Mardi Gras place to eat for a cajun fix.
