Reporting on yet another Vietnamese-Cajun restaurant in OC (indie pub Squeeze OC has a story on the trend), MeowMixx says the little critters at Rockin’ Crawfish indeed rock.
The standard order is: seafood (crawfish, of course, or Dungeness crab or head-on shrimp, all very fresh) in a spicy boil with corn on the cob. The crawfish in particular are extra large and extra tasty. Unfortunately, the Cajun spices seem to be mostly garlic, even the “spicy” orders. And while oysters are good, MeowMixx’s group got a bunch of dud clams. Oysters are $13/dozen; clams $9/dozen; crawfish $7/pound; Dungeness crab $11/pound. Four people can eat well for $100.
Cajun Corner makes it nice and spicy, but their crawfish isn’t always the freshest.
Boiling Crab is usually a good spot, but their crawfish have been on the small side lately. Now that they’re about to be in season again that will hopefully change, says “Hershey Bomar”.
The Squeeze story also mentioned Cafe Artist and Artist Restaurant as having spicy seafood boils.
