Salt and Pepper Crab in Seattle??

  • 5

Just back from San Francisco where I ate a wonderful Chinese meal at the R&G Restuarant. The highlight of the meal was a "salt and pepper dungeness crab"...it was spectacular!! Does anyone know if this dish is available in any restaurant here? Thanks, fellow chowhounders.

  1. I think alot of the better Cantonese-style restaurants that keep live crabs on hand can manage this dish. My go-to for crab is Sea Garden, and also the more vivid Malay/Singaporean preps at Malay Satay Hut.

    1. If you haven't tried the Szechuan crab at places like Bamboo Garden and Seven Stars Pepper, do so. I think it blows R&G's salt and pepper crab out of the water.

      But if your heart is set on salt and pepper, I know salt and pepper prawns is a dish you'll find at Bamboo Garden--maybe they can make you a s&p crab too.

      1. Malay Satay Hut has a peppered crab. I'm not sure if it's a Chinese style or Malaysian, but they eat a lot of Chinese food in Malaysia.

        1. In Voracious today they mentioned the S&P Crab at Flying Fish. But I checked the menu, and it runs $28/lb.

          !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Crab at Bamboo Garden is usually $9.99/lb, frequently less.

            I had the szechuan crab at 7 stars a week or so ago, and it was $12.99/lb. i hadn't had it in awhile, and it was better than i remembered.

            also, i noticed they have a seperate dish called salt and pepper crab. not sure what the difference is, and unfortunately, we didn't try it. we had one szechuan crab and one ginger crab for 3 of us and that was plenty. yum!
