Critter Cuisine

I should feel bad. I ate this week's camera critter. I just couldn't help myself.

I've been waiting a whole year for The Crab King floating restaurant in Steveston BC to open. It's a seasonal restaurant, and this is my first summer visit to this historic seaside village. Just like the name sounds, they specialize is fresh caught and cooked crab. So fresh, they are critters in a tank before they become tasty cuisine on your plate.

The tables are outdoors with views of the Steveston Harbour and all of its fishing boats. After you order at the window, a waitress covers your table with butcher paper ready to catch the shells and mess of cracked crab. I got the half crab. It was really good, but I could have eaten a lot more. Half a crab ala carte was $12.95. A bit pricey for lunch when you add a coke and fries, but worth the wait. -- Margy
