$3.50 Soft Shell Crabs!

icelandadam Jul 23, 2009 09:42 PM

the chinese restaurant on broadway (r,v to elmhurst av) between dunkin donuts and top line has soft shell crabs for sale now for 3.50. theyre decently good especially for that price.
i got it to go, ate it sandwich style with mayo, tomato, onion, and lettuce. very tasty, very cheap. just letting you guys know.

        @bigjeff yeah its across the street from sugar club, right by top line...they have a sign on their window advertising the special, im going to snap a picture today of the exterior....not the best in the world, but get it to go and craft a sandwich and its totally worth it.......i love this time of year

            i will post the pic soon, the sign also advertises lobster for 10 bucks, ive had the duck from there its tight but i'd select with caution when it comes to their menu...one could easily order something that you could get at a take out place with a price hike. havent had the lobster yet because i can get my own at top line or ny supermrkt for 6 bucks or so

          They was pretty good but that place needs to change their oil more often. 2 crabs will make 1 full sandwich.Top Line has fresh soft shell crabs. They're $36 a dozen. I'll probably get a half a dozen pan fry them.
