Citysearch Editorial Review – This Boiling Crab copycat--right down to the name, nearly--in the heart of Hollywood's Thai town offers Creole food lovers all their crustacean favorites plus a generous dose of Thai selections. The Alaskan king crab, Dungeness crab, shrimp and crawfish remain the stars of the show, but traditional Thai dishes like pad see iew and basil eggplant make up a large portion of the supporting cast. If you really feel the need to eat Thai at a restaurant going after seafood fans, the best deals are at lunch, where $5.99-$6.99 specials are served until 3pm. Otherwise, the crabs and lobster (market priced) and shrimp ($8.99 a pound) arrive in large plastic bags with your desired level of spiciness and shaken in your choice of seasoning: Louisana, garlic butter, lemon pepper, Indian spice or a combination. For a Thai twist to seafood, you can also ask for the seafood dipping sauce that blends chilis, garlic and other spices in fish sauce.
