Shanghai Next Week - Too Late for Hairy Crab?

  • 0

Hello, all!

I'm going to be in Shanghai for all of 22 hours next weekend, and I'm trying to cram in as much as possible. One thing I'm considering is hitting the hairy crab pretty hard, but I'm having a hard time getting good info on how long the season runs. I'm told it'll be available next weekend, but given how little ground I'll be able to cover in a day, I don't want to blow a meal on them if they won't be up to snuff because it's so late in the season. Is this still a worthwhile endeavor in early January, or should I focus elsewhere?

Thanks!
