Ever wondered what $60 dollars worth of King crab looks like in Alaska? Twenty bucks a pound, which is four dollars cheaper than I can get it in Chinatown (I am going to double check this price - plus the stuff I get here in NYC is sometimes a little freezer burned) we ordered a pound and a quarter each. Thats Tracy herself holding up our order just prior to steaming.
Tracy's King Crab Shack in Juneau, Alaska was the best we could find at a price that wouldnt kill us, and when I say the best, I mean the BEST. I also mean the only, all the other prospects were sit down joints, what are ya gonna do?
They hooked up our bucket while we sipped on their signature crab bisque. The soup was nice it had chunks of crab and smooth buttery bisque - for an eight ounce cup we coughed up 6 bucks and wished we got the large instead, it was that good. In our large bucket we got arms and claws and shoulders and little tubs of garlic butter and warm rolls and scissors and nut crackers and napkins and sheets of paper for plates- the full meal deal!
We tore that bucket up in less than 20 minutes, rich, tasty, fresh - by far the best King crab I have ever tasted and the Pup and Banana concur! This Crab Shack should be a destination!
still coming up - cruise desserts....really!
