Kani Mura [Crab Village] - Little Tokyo

weebie | Nov 16, 2004 07:59 PM

I've been hearing about the relatively new Kani Mura in Honda Plaza (Little Tokyo) for a few months now but haven't seen much mention here.

Supposedly the restaurant serves only crab dishes in four different cooking styles. There is Japanese-style hot pot crab (kani nabe), Korean-style spicy crab, American-style garlic crab, and boiled crab. Also read good things about the steamed bread with kani miso (crab paste).

Has anyone been here? I'm wondering about the menu and approx price per person. BTW - I've heard all the drama about neighboring businesses downplaying the place as inauthentic (it's Korean owned). But that's just drama to me. I need hard facts. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
