whether you choose to believe him is up to you, but he offered a lot of insider information which i dont really doubt.
I found bigrig's info from last year's thread. Looks like he may have been banned for trying to push his goods in the same thread. Seems like he had a lot to gain by telling people that restaurants will scam you and that you can purchase from him directly....

you are so right. buying a live crab from him is equal to paying for a crab at a restaurant that is cooked and served to you because lord knows everyone who buys a live crab has the know how and ability to cook it like that.

ive bought from him, and find him to be a trustworthy, and knowledgeable guy.

ps. after reading a few of his posts, he wasnt "pushing" his products. it was more like ppl here asking him about his product. also, im sure if he supplied that many places, which im sure he is because ive heard his company name within the chinese restaurant industry, a few sales from RS wouldnt benefit him that much. it sounds like he was offering his services and products as more of a favour to us here

Believe it or not, Chinese restaurants will scam you. Even if they don't do a switch-a-roo, they may tell you its a 12lb crab but realistically it may only be 10lbs. They may also weigh it in a tub with water, etc. There are lots of way to get you without you knowing, and if every restaurant is doing it to some extent, you won't know. Its harder to scam with smaller crabs, and I don't think that many sell 5lb crabs, they don't make profit that way.

Of course, there are restaurants that are more legit than others, and there are ones who are known to scam big time. If you want, you can go to a place where you know a manager well, they will wring out all the water THEN weigh it giving you a true weight of the crab.

Kirin etc are selling at 18ish a pound. So ymmv.

For Chinese restaurants, I think it is better to have at least 4-6 people to share a 12-15 pound crab?

Has anyone heard anything about this year's King crab season? Co-worker just mentioned to us the season is possibly nearing the end and a lot of restaurants have gone up in price to over $20 a lb with a lot of restaurants actually out of crab.

It is known to be a short season (see my first post).

It was already close to 20 at Kirin a week ago.

Serious question,

Does anyone know what's the status of these crabs, are there an abundance or are they running out and being overfished? I just want check about this ethics wise before I chow down on a couple of these motherfuckers.

i haven't heard of them being on the endangered list, and i see "alaskan king crab" being sold in normal grocery stores, so i don't think it would be an issue?

Dont go to Victory Seafood in Crystal Mall....total scam
I asked for a 10lb crab, there was only 4 of us, the waiter brings out a 13.5 lb crab and we go we want smaller, he goes smallest they have is 12.8...which is total total BS! I had King Crab 2 the week before in Richmond at Excelsior and the largest crab they had was 11.5. This place goes smallest they have is 12.8?!?!?!??!?

But I had a friend from out of town here so we went with it and of course I knew what they served me was less than 12.8....probably just around 10lbs.

Also when looking for where to go, the places that charge a really cheap price usually make you add more money to have it cooked 2, 3 or 4 ways.
