Last time I went to eat one of those, it was so expensive I just couldn’t do it lol. And I can spend some money on food lol.!

Came out to $55. I was in Ushuaia, Argentina right near where they are caught! Agree though… typically Whole Foods or something is like $35-40 a pound so I don’t even buy any.

Probabaly the price spiked because the Alaskan Crab population crashed. They didn’t even have a crab fishing season this year.

How much was it? In the US I think this would be at least $200.

How was it?

Best crab I ever had for sure. I’ve only had frozen crab from the grocery but this was cooked on the spot.

even with difficulty to open, king crab is simply delicious, worth the effort.


Dogsanddogs OP t1_j24gmn5 wrote

They gave everyone chef scissors. Never even thought of the idea but it was sooo easy to cut open.

Nice! I've only ever seen one whole live king crab in my life (at a local H Mart or Uwajimaya; can't remember which). I wanted to buy it so bad, but $$$$.

I usually buy the clusters and king crab is my absolute favorite food.

Was in Ushuaia, Argentina. So many restaurants have them in the window or when you walk in… like lobsters back in the US. I love crab so I had to get it. They all seemed to sell out in the mornnng before siesta then they refilled the tanks. came out to $55

Wow! That's a great price! I've paid for than that to have a few legs cooked for me in a fancy restaurant.

Time to visit Argentina, methinks!


Dogsanddogs OP t1_j25sjmw wrote

For sure. Just checked my credit card statement and I was wrong! It cost a total of $60 for 2 of these and a liter of beer!!!

That is the smallest king crab I've ever seen.


Dogsanddogs OP t1_j25snju wrote

Really? Never seen a whole one. They had small medium large to buy


AKCooking t1_j25stao wrote

Yeah granted maybe in Alaska we have different rules on what we be brought up, but those legs seem small.

Did all the news about them dying out get you hungry
