Shanghai hairy crab / Chinese mitten crab

SourberryLily | Aug 30, 2011 08:56 AM

When i lived in HK i saw these windows filled with hairy crabs in season. I never did get around to tasting it.

When is the season exactly? i know it's in Autum
Would anybody know of a chinese restaurant that serves this small crab?

Thanks. Here is a picture of the crabs all tied up:
