soft shell crabs - where to go

2 slices | Jun 9, 200604:07 PM     7

Howdy all. Excited to get some soft shells and just wanted some input.

Went to NY Noodletown only once last year and while the price was right I remember them being extremely salty, and I like salty. Perhaps the name of the dish "salt baked" might have been a hint, or maybe it was just an off day.

Any other spots in chinatown that serve them slightly less salty, or should I just go back and try agai?.

Also would love to hear of other non-chinatown recs, however I don't want to spend more than $20 per dish.

Thanks!
