Uh… @Ns1 just did.
What?? Why doesn’t anyone tell me these things?
This can’t be the first time you’ve heard of Boiling Crab with it’s numerous locations and dozens of copycats
Search yelp for “Crawfish”, exclude the 5 cajun restaurants, and the rest are viet crawfish joints.
Viet Crawfish has been in Southern California for about 10 years lol
I’ve eaten at the Westwood one plenty of times, but had no idea it was Vietnamese. Too funny, I’m all mopey because I want Vietnamese crayfish and I’ve been eating it all this time.
We find the good food, don’t we, even when we don’t know what the heck we are eating.
OMG - that’s really funny.
Watch the David Chang Ugly Delicious episode on Shrimp and Crawfish for a summary of the history of this cultural amalgam.
