I've been dying to try this place for months, ever since I saw it on Wandering Chopsticks. Loads of butter, garlic, spices, and seafood--what's not to love?
Love the roll of paper towel! It came in superhandy.
The crawfish/crawdads come in plastic bags. They usually include 1 corn on the cob with a 2-pound bag.
Between the five of us, we had five pounds!
We also had 3 pounds of King crab. Honestly, I was not too keen on King crabs. But since they were out of Dungeness, we didn't really have a choice. They turned out AMAZING. They were succulent, sweet, meaty, and delicious.
The cajun fries had a real kick to them.
The aftermath ... haha ...
I kinda wished they had a pipping hot bowl of rice or bread to soak up all the spicy gravy. The bill came up to about $26 per person (with drinks). The service was pretty good for a place in Alhambra. Two thumbs up!

We had the sweet potato shaved ice with green tea ice cream at a different place.
