where to get (asian style) dungeness crab??
lived in the Bay Area for a year, and feasted during dungeness crab season... it's one of the few things I miss having moved back to NYC!
in particular, there was this place in SF called PPQ Dungeness Crab. Anyone know it? You could get crab in any number of ways, all done spectacularly. My personal favorites were the curried crab (somehow the crab managed to be succulent, sweet, and delicious, the taste not hidden by the yummy vietnamese style brown, slightly coconuty curry) and the salt and pepper crab. so freakin' good!!
given that you can get dungeness crabs at every asian fish market in Chinatown (Manhattan and Brooklyn), I can't believe you can't find it served in any asian restaurants... but i haven't been able to find any yet! (i did try it at one korean-chinese place in Bayside, which was really good, but only served one way...) anyone have any rec's? i'm expecially interested in finding it at a vietnamese or malaysian place, but chinese or korean or whatever would be great, too! i live in brooklyn, but recs for anywhere will be pursued!
we tried Fuleen Seafood on Division in Manhattan Chinatown the other day. The crab was okay. Not bad, but not worth going back, in my opinion. I see on a few posts here that there is some Cantonese crab to be had in Flushing. Maybe I'm especially looking for more of a Southeast Asian style, though...
