Crab Hut

Oops, we ate all the crab thingies before I took the picture.

Usually there are limes, but apparently there is some kind of
Tragic Lime Shortage in San Diego these days.

Oh, shrimp!  Don't forget to suck the heads.

This very weird-looking photo is of a potato.  Don't be scared.

The sausage is no-kidding amazing.

Miko has to have rice.

They give you bibs, but Jenne has this macho thing about not wearing them.

They very kindly give you mints and wet-naps.

  • The food comes out in plastic bags, and you just peel everything and dump the shells on the table, which is covered in butcher paper.  No plates!  It's messy, interactive, and fun!
  • The wraps had a lot of crab in them, which we like.  Crunchy and delicious!
  • The fries are crinkle-cut.  Nothing special, but fries are fries -- always yummy.
  • Crab Hut says they have a Louisiana kitchen, but everyone who works there is Asian.
  • This restaurant would be greatly improved if they had a hand-washing station outside the bathrooms.

Parking: Private lot shared with rest of plaza -- it can get a little crazy, but you can usually find a spot if you drive around a few times.  But the spaces are teeny.
Ideal group size: 2-6; they do take reservations for parties of 5 or more.
Available vegetarian options: Sides, e.g. fried okra, fresh celery and carrot, potato salad, corn on the cob. Much better place for pescatarians.

Who not to bring: Vegetarians, prissy people who don't like to get messy.
Chopsticks: Not offered, even with the rice
