Looking for a good crab leg buffet
I'm looking for a budget friendly ($30 and under) crab leg buffet that serves butter on the side. I've only gone to kyojin and they only serve theirs cold with an option of cocktail sauce, which was not bad at all, but I'm wanting crab legs with a savory (warm, buttery) touch. Are there any good places in the coral gables area or near?
Your help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Crab Leg buffets are seldom good. In order to make money on a potentially bottomess pit of Crab Leg consumption, most restaurants offer only the frozen variety, which is really not worth eating. Still, if that's what you want, try the Ark Restaurant & Catering (6255 Stirling Road, Davie, FL 954-584-3075). They have many other things besides Crab Claws, which I never eat. Instead, I go for their Roast Prime Rib au Jus.
When it does come to Stone Crab Claws, I prefer to buy from the seafood stores, ask that the claws be cracked (at no extra charge), buy a container of their special Mustard Sauce, and take them home to enjoy. Here are two establishments that sell fresh, fresh, fresh Stone Crab Claws in season, which is from October 15th to May 15th each year:
The Fish Peddler, 7794 NW 44th Street, Sunrise, FL 33351 Tel: 954-741-1933
Captain Jim Hanson's, 12950 West Dixie Highway, North Miami, FL 33161 Tel: 305-892-2812
Once you have tasted FRESH Stone Crab Claws, you will never touch a frozen one again...
