My birthday is coming up this weekend and I would love to have garlic crab. I considered Crustaceans (love their crab and garlic noodles), but I do not want to ask my friends to pay upwards of $60-$70 to celebrate my birthday (hey, we are in a recession!! I don't want to pay big bucks unnecessarily either!).
I have noticed that CH is not a big fan of Crustaceans. So. . .are there other restaurants in LA (or surrounding areas) that serve a similar style of garlic crab that is less expensive and tasty? Garlic noodles is a plus.
I appreciate any suggestions!!
