Yats Crawfish Boil
Sat from 1-6pm at 1097 53rd St, near San Pablo; Oakland; 504.231.8612
Yats is flying in 1,000 lbs of crawfish for an all-you-can-eat boil this Sat. The 25 buck price tag gets you endless spicy potatoes/corn on the side
I wish we had more of a history of eating them here so I could get them more cheaply or more easily than making a trek up to Isleton. I remember catching them by the bucketful as child, but even then my parents had to drive us aways for best harvesting.
I know the NOLA people talk about the superior flavor of theirs, but I much prefer the larger size of the (yes, invasive) Sacto ones. After all, after boiling them in Cajun spices, is the difference in flavor really all that apparent?
