Crawfish in Vancouver?

I was driving in Richmond on Alderbridge and I passed a store called "Crawfish King" with an opening soon sign. Does anyone know when they will open and what type of cajun foods they sell? Coming from california (where there is an abundance of cajun places) if this is like the Boiling Crab, I am very excited!!!!

  1. I went in and asked, they said that they would be opening on April 24th. I have tried the crawfish king in Seattle and it should be the same, so if you want to know what they sell go to their website. BOILING CRAB LOVER FOR LIFE! But, crawfish king is the closest to it, personally speaking (meh to hot n juicy).

    1. wonder if they will bring in fresh softshell crabs. i live in hope...

          Interesting-Crayfish were farmed on northern Vancouver Island for some time and IIRC all the product was exported.

          I wonder if this is imported Chinese product they'll be offering?

            I recall during my North Burnaby childhood, we caught cray-/crawfish in the stream of a local park.

              We go looking for crayfish way out in Grand Forks ... that's a lot farther than Burnaby.
