East Ocean City?

We were going to go to East Ocean City tomorrow night for dinner. What should we order? Or should we go to some other place in Chinatown?

  1. If they have fresh crab, get their salt & pepper dungeness crab.

    1. re: kobuta

      2nd!! Or S&P shrimp, if live ones in the tanks.

    2. They had live shrimp this week. Scallops in the shell are very good. You can't go wrong if you stick to the "in tank" offerings. There is a separate "seafood menu" which is translated. Enjoy. Nicer room than many of my other CTown faves. If you want to splurge, get a live Alaskan King Crab. Check prices on seafood to avoid an unpleasant surprise when you get the bill. I'm not suggesting that they are going to cheat you; just that some of these live items are expensive. ex..the Alakan King Crab is easily $120+ The dungeness is great too and much more reasonably priced.
