This is one of two Shanghai restaurants on Cai Lan’s list. It has old fashioned décor. Most rooms on the second floor are small with low ceiling, over looking the main hall on the ground floor, where two female musicians playing, one on piba. Their bathroom is clean. Good service, pretty presentation and delicious food. I love the crabs! The restaurant prides itself as

蟹王府 奄仔蟹 是还未交配的“童男” “童女” 青蟹, 来自咸淡水交界的台山。

This type of (Aberdeen?) crab is not yet mated “boys”, or “virgin girl” who live in  brackish water from the junction of Taishan. Wiki explains as follow:

奄仔蟹 (yan zi)其实是来自咸淡水交界、约3个月大、未曾产卵受精的幼年雌蟹,产于流浮山一带的珠江三角洲,蟹羔呈鲜黄色,味道甘香鲜美。特征——蟹身色泽较浅,蟹腹细小且白里透黑,壳薄。

黄油蟹 Royal Crab is available between June to September.
