Anyone who knows me well can tell you where I’d rather be at this very moment. I’ll give you a clue in one word: sand.
Yep! You guessed it, I’m an aspiring beach bum. Love everything about being close to the ocean. Since I was eight years old – collecting lobster shells – I’ve longed for the day I can live by the shore. Until then, you may find me planning our next beach vacay and indulging in treats from the sea.
Last weekend a dear friend visited to celebrate my birthday. She’s a foodie like us. After weeks of hearing about King Krabz, this seemed like the perfect time to give them a try. Those of you on Facebook in the Dallas area surely have seen the graphic, mouth-watering snow crab legs and shrimp pop up as you’re scrolling FB or Insta.
The exterior can be a bit of a mystery with two different names, you’ve gotta look closely at the windows where you’ll see the circular logo of King Krabz Seafood.
After the first bite, you’ll forget all about the dual residency and focus solely on the taste. You see these crustaceans are prepared like no other we’ve experienced. Seeing as how we’ve pretty much eaten in spots spanning the globe, that says a lot. Every yummy item will leave your taste buds begging for more, from the super tender, buttery potatoes and sugary sweet, fresh corn to the signature hard-boiled egg. Cracking open leg after leg reveals flavors that clearly penetrate the shell. Surely, theirs is a recipe kept under lock and key.
At the end of the day, don’t take our word for it. You’ll have visit the heart of old Richardson and taste for yourself.
Know Before You Go:
+Check your calendar and clock. They’re open Thursday thru Saturday 11 am to 9 pm and Sunday 1-7 pm.
+If you like corn, add an extra one when you order. This’ll help you avoid buyer’s remorse and standing in line again because you’ll surely want another.
+Don’t buy just one meal and plan to share. Trust us on this one.
+You’ll spend at least 20-30 bucks per person, but don’t flinch. It’s a far cry from the cost of a flight to the East Coast, which is the only place you’re likely to find anything remotely as yummy.
