I love coming here during crab season, got the dinner for two plus an additional peppercorn crab.
Imperial rolls, chicken salad
They must put crack in this. Pro-tip take some crab meat, noodles, and melted butter from the roasted crab for the perfect bite.
Fried with a crunchy batter and bits of garlic.
The local season ended two weeks ago.
i was there a couple weeks ago, just lagging in the post.
Anyway there’s still good crab coming in from Alaska.
Are they related to Crustacean?
ETA: Isn’t the WA State season open?
I think Washington, BC, and Alaska are all still open.
Crustacean and PPQ Dungeness are both spinoffs from the family’s original restaurant, Thanh Long.
That’s funny. I always thought that Thanh Long was a spin off of Crustacean. I haven’t eaten there in over 20 years so my memory is weak
Super article. Thanks for sharing. A quick google looks like the Vegas one didn’t make it and I can’t find anything about Union Square. ???
Wait, I was wrong. PPQ is a knockoff of Thanh Long but I guess has no connection to the An family.
In 2007 they were still working on the Sutter St. location: Crustacean heading south
Their web site shows they have at least one new restaurant in the works, but has no info about it beyond the name: http://www.houseofan.com/
Good question cat. Looking at this made me think - I need to get over to Crustacean for my annual fix of Spicy Crab & Garlic Noodles.
imperial rolls, cabbage salad with chicken
roasted crab with garlic, butter, spices
Great excuse to eat straight butter
Just a side note to say that I learned to make imperial rolls after eating my weight’s worth in Vietnam. Dang, they’re good.
