  1. I had an awesome soft shell crab dish tonight (!) at Fatty Crab, 2 fried soft shell crabs with thai flavors served over rice- nice heat level, cooled off by a generous cilantro salad. The menu puts it at "MP." Market price tonight was $24. Really a great deal considering how awesome the happy hour drink menu is. Picklebacks, pbr and soft shell crab!

    1. I saw them for sale at Wild Edibles in the GC Marketplace on Monday. They were ludicrously expensive ($9 a crab I think!!), but that means they're starting to roll in.

      Where can I get a good soft shell crab sandwich?
