Hosting a crawfish boil in San Francisco

  • 9

I lived in New Orleans for a few years and was thinking about having my own Mardi Gras party here in San Francisco, complete with crawfish boil. The only problem is that I have no idea where to get the boil kit... or the crawfish. Anybody have any ideas on where to find either of these? I'm also open to having a shrimp boil, but same problem of where to buy bulk shrimp? Also, as an addendum, anybody know where to find King Cake?
Thanks for your help!

  1. For live crawfish, try Bob's Bait Shop in Isleton.

    I often see cooked, imported crawfish at Lucky's Supermarket and also various Asian supermarkets.

    1. There have been reports of live crawfish at 99 Ranch and other Chinese stores.

        1. For what it's worth, I saw them last month in Oakland at Lucky Seafood Market.

          1. IKEA carries frozen crawfish.
