Happy Crab, Teele Square, Somerville

Madrid | Feb 23, 202011:38 AM     3

We just came back from our first, very enjoyable time at Happy Crab. Great food...we loved the fried oysters and we got the lunchtime special smaller bag with clams, shrimp, and garlic noodles. Utterly delicious. Very fresh seafood and the garlic noodles absorb the luscious shellfish cooking sauce. Best shrimp we've ever had in Boston. Great quality/price ratio. We split the red bean ice cream, which was also amazing.

I've never been to the Shaking Crab franchise in nearby Porter Square, so I can't compare the two restaurants. However, this is a locally owned, newly opened (Dec. 2019) small business, not an international chain, so I'll be going back here to support them. Bonus, cute fanciful serving dishes, small grocery cart for the fried oysters, miniature bath tub for the ice cream. Clock and crab wall decorations from China.

Very friendly people and very welcome addition to the Camberville/Boston restaurant scene. Happy hour every day at 3 and very reasonably priced bar drinks all the time. They open earlier, at noon, on Fri, Sat, and Sun. Definitely worth trying and also parking reasonably easy in Teele Square, Somerville, very close to Cambridge, Arlington,Tufts, Mystic Valley Parkway.

We'll be back!
