Okay, I know not everyone is a big fan of this place, but when you've got fresh seafood and prices cheaper than buying it at the market and cooking it yourself, what's not to like? Plus, the food is pretty yummy. I'm not sure it's "gourmet" Chinese/Cantonese food, but it's pretty darn good.
They are having this special at New Capital Seafood on Garvey Ave by Del Mar Blvd. This location will only be open until April 20th, so they don't have that many live fishes and seafoods to pick from at this point. They will be moving to their new location where the old Sam Woo Dim Sum restaurant on the 3rd floor of the Focus/Del Mar Plaza used to be.
Anyhow, back to the food. They are having this special at New Capital: live king crabs for $3.99 a pound (usually these suckers are at least 10 pounds), live shrimp (the small ones, not the super size prawns) for 1 cent a pound, and live dungeoness crab for 1 cent a pound. You can only pick one of the three items, and you must spend at least $25, which is not hard, to get the special. I think there is also a limit on pounds and/or crabs depending on how many people you have in your party.
Not the less, I'm hoping they will continue the specials at the new Sam Woo location, as I will definitely be there!
Why cook at home?
