just drove by and saw that Hop Woo is having a 3.99 per CRAB promotion...however

it's only between 11am to 5pm

and the crab is less than 1.5 lbs

but i figure you can order more than one...

i think it includes sat and sun...but it didn't say on the sign

i'll probably try it during the weekend...hard to go during the week during those hours

    Don't be surprised if there are "strings" attached. You probably have to order like $25-$30 worth of other stuff (not including the crab) to get that price.

    I've seen it done at other restaurants......like Jade Village on Garfield.

      Then again, at less than 1.5 lbs., it isn't going to be a Dungeness crab which weigh in at 3 or more pounds for a whole one.

        Boy, have you been getting lucky. It was hard to get a 2 pounder this season.

          I only buy them at the store to make at home and they have to be 3lbs. or over.....and there's a separate tank and price for the larger ones. You figure only 25% of the weight is only edible meat. Now that you mentioned it, the smaller crab tanks seem to have more than the larger crab tanks.

          At 1.5 lbs it sounds like they're serving a rock crab or something.

        Nevermind....they took the banner off!!!! i'm guessing either they misprinted it or it's over...

        drove by and the banner wasn't there anymore...
