Welcome to episode six of Eating with John Chow. On this episode, I headed to Bellevue, Washington (a suburb of Seattle) to take on the Seafeast at the Crab Pot. What is the Seafeast?
Our Specialty: We take a variety of fresh seafood, steamed with mouth-watering spices, we pour it out on the table on butcher paper, give you a mallet, bibs & let you go at it!
King crab, dungeness crab, snow crab, shrimp in the shell, steamed clams, Pacific mussels, andouille sausage, corn on the cob and red potatoes in their jackets.
The Crab Pot, and its seafeast, were featured on the Man Vs. Food TV show when it came to Seattle. I’ve been dining at the Crab Pot long before it became famous. The restaurant is one of my favorite places to go to experience messy dining at its finest.
In addition to the seafeast, the Crab Pot features more traditional seafood and non-seafood dishes. Make sure you try the oysters on the half shell and at least one of the four available seafeasts.
