Amazing Crab anyone?

Damnhungry May 20, 2011 01:45 PM

Every now and then I go to Los Angeles for business and end up at a restaurant called Crustaceans in Beverly Hills. It has the MOST delicious cracked crab I probably will EVER taste + Garlic noodles.

Does anyone known the restaurant? Is there anything like it in Manhattan? Or remotely like it (please don't say Fatty Crab because that would not even be funny). The only - somewhat remotely close- 'hole in the wall' comparable to that is a small Vietnamese place in SF called Kim Thanh.

This is NY. There HAS to be something close? Anyone? Anyone? Please!!!!

      Are you specifically looking for Vietnamese-style crab over noodles? I think there's a similar dish at Amazing 66 though I haven't tried it.
