Kicking It Up A Notch At The Kickin’ Crab

The Kickin’ Crab opened a new location in Irvine so Oscar and I decided to check it out. Like the Boiling Crab, the Kickin’ Crab take messy dining to a fine new level.

If you enjoy eating with your hands, then you’ll love the Kickin’ Crab. You won’t find any kitchen utensils like knives or forks on the table. There’s just one big roll of paper towels to wipe your hands. And you will be cleaning your hands often thanks to the sauce that will be dripping off your fingers.

We decided to go with Kickin’ Combo Deal #1, which offers 2lb of shrimps, 1lb of clams, two corn on the cob, two potatoes and four sausages. There’s choice of five seasonings and four heat levels (mild to spicy spicy). We went with the Kickin’ Style seasoning at the spicy level. Everything is put inside a clear plastic bag and boiled in the water. Then it’s just dumped on your table.

Making a mess is not only allowed, it’s encouraged. You’re also free to make a mess of the wall by writing your phone number on it and hoping a fellow diner will call you (see the video below to find out how that went). I recommend you just sign your name. Overall, the Kickin’ Crab offers a one fine and messy dining experience. I highly recommend it.
