Live crab battered, deep-fried and sprinkled with salt and pepper seasonings. Half $25
R&G Lounge, San Francisco CA

Meh, I really wasn’t a fan of this dish especially considering how expensive it was. I guess the flavor was ok, but the crab was SO greasy! I’m all for eating with my hands and getting messy but it’s gross to be squeezing and crushing THAT much oil out of your food. Ugh, I definitely would not order this again.

This soup was pretty good. It had a nice spiciness to it and there was a good amount of ingredients. I don’t like it when it’s all broth.
