Dungeness Crab vs Lobster

Junie D | Jun 25, 2007 12:55 PM

A post about a Lobster Shack in Napa on the SF board brought up the question of dungeness crab vs lobster. It's probably a regional preference, so I'll disclose that I am a native San Franciscan and prefer crab. It's just tastier, sweet and salty, not such a gummy texture, the flavor and texture of the body is different from the legs, which is different from the claws. On the other hand, I've had some delicious lobster - subtle, smooth. But if I have to choose, I'll take crab any day. Which do you prefer and why?
