It’s Hairy Crab Season

My friend Joanne flew up from Hong Kong. It’s hairy crab season here in Shanghai.

Reservations were made at Xinguang Jiu Jia.

It was pretty awesome. Every part of the crab. De-shelled. Served with asparagus, crab meat, various reproductive organs.

    Yes, I love crab. The first picture is the claw meat, second is the legs. What part of the crab is the 5th photo?

    That’s the unshelled Canadian Hong Kong portion of the crab. Hairy crab is good, but I really prefer dungeness.
