Alaskan King Crab at Congee Noodle King

A week or so ago, Jefe reminded us that it’s Alaskan King Crab season. With a single text, several stomachs started to growl simultaneously. The only question was where. He suggested Congee Noodle King on Kingsway. Good choice considering they’re open late and were offering it up at $13.88 a pound. With the entire kitchen staff in tow, we sped off for a major midnight feast.

The menu tonight, although good reading, was virtually unnecessary. We’re here for the big ol’ beasts floating about in an unusually clean tank.

Within minutes of being seated, Jefe ordered up our main course. A couple of minutes later, this rather ginormous crustacean was brought out for the customary viewing/photo-op.

Not the biggest crab here but this one was pretty hefty. Tipping the scales at a hair under twelve pounds, it would make up three of tonight’s dishes.
