Crustacean - Oh Crab!

Roasted Cracked Dungeness Crab

  1. eww i'm sorry that food looks disgusting. i've had the garlic noodles and lobster dish and was not impressed. panda express chow mein is better.

    My favorite dish is the garlic noodles with tiger prawns.

    If you're in the mood for meat, try the brased short rib.

    Also, this is a unique treat you'll find at Crustacean:
