I'm a huge fan of the crabs and crawfish at the Boiling Crab in Garden Grove, when they're in season and not teeny tiny, but the drive from Silver Lake is at least 45 minutes and I'm a demon on the road.
Now we have another choice for spicy Cajun seafood. I went to Crabulous for the first time the other night, pretty damn good, and only 15 minutes from Silver Lake.
The menu at Crabulous is much like the Boiling Crab but the seasoning is not as spicy so order a level above what you would at BC. Crabulous also serves more stuff then BC, onion rings, fries, mussels, clams. But they're still waiting for the liquor license and it is NOT byob.
The decor isn't as fun as BC, and it's smaller, but the cheesy music is the same and so are the pretty girls.
