Imitation crab meat in Chinese restaurants

luckyfatima | Jan 1, 2012 05:53 AM

Many Chinese restaurants I go to use a delicious kind of imitation crab meat. The pieces are solid. There are no flaking strings or rings inside them like many other brands of crab meat. It doesn't taste remotely like real crab, but I like it as a food itself. It is very mild and not at all fishy. The pieces are white inside and have a red exterior. I really like the taste and texture of this kind of imitation crab meat, so I would like to know what brand(s) they may be using.
