Crab King in Bellevue's Crossroad Neighborhood to Celebrate Grand Opening April 28th-30th

Crab King BellevueBellevue has become a dining mecca and one of the city’s newest restaurants, Crab King, will be celebrating its Grand Opening April 28th through 30th by offering the house Shabu Shabu multi-course menu for half price.  Xiaomeng Liu and his wife Peipei have based their specialized Northern Japanese style restaurant on a favorite Sapporo crab house called Kani Sho-gun.   Similarly crustacean focused, Crab King serves fresh crab in many dishes, including Red King, Japanese Snow and Dungeness. Liu, also the owner of iconic Seattle seafood dining destination Flying Fish, brought over two chefs from Hokkaido to helm the kitchen and provide guests with a truly authentic dining experience.
The menu celebrates the Liu’s preferred seafood, which is served hot pot, steamed, baked, and salt and pepper style. Most fresh frozen jumbo Red King Crab (which is very flavorful) goes to Japan or China and is not available for retail sale.  To ensure obtainability, Xiaomeng and Peipei purchased an entire year’s worth (investing approximately $100,000).   Continue reading “Crab King in Bellevue's Crossroad Neighborhood to Celebrate Grand Opening April 28th-30th”
