I'm looking for a live Alaskan King Crab to take to Maple Yip and have the chef there prepare dishes for me. Rather than driving around town, any fellow chowhounder know, FOR SURE, places that might have them? In the past, once in a while, I noticed them available in T&T. Will Lobster Island in Scarborough have them? Thx!!
I remember reading some time ago that Scaramouche had a source. You might check the Globe archives or call them.
I've never seen one in person, but, frankly, I would have horror flashbacks of the movie Alien if I had to drive one of them around the city. You have the makings of a very good photo essay, B-movie, or at least a youtube video. Please share your journey.
Possible Chow gathering....Alaskan crab races.....
Charles, on Mother's Day my father in law mentioned that he and three others shared an Alaskan King Crab at Rodney's. It was definitely whole. He mentioned that when presented, it took over the whole table, it was so huge. I suggest calling Rodney's and asking for their source. That dinner probably took place two or three weeks ago.
