Editor’s Description

Last updated: May 8, 2021
It all began in a little Southeastern Texas town called Seadrift, home to Yo’Daddy and his family of crabbers and fishermen. They labored in their boats year-round, catching oysters, crab and shrimp for the seafood industry. Every weekend, the men would come home with their catch of the week, boiling crawfish and crabs, shucking raw oysters, grilling fresh fish, always with a beer in hand. In 1995, Yo’Daddy caught the best catch of his life; Yo’Mama! With their flair for having a good time, warm hospitality and passion for seafood, Yo’Daddy and Yo’Mama opened the first Boiling Crab in 2004. Now Shanghai gets its own taste of a backyard crabfest near Xintiandi. The Boiling Crab purports to have the “best tail in town” and be the biggest "ass-pinching, head-sucking venue this side of Mississippi," which... my oh my. Bold flavors and messy eating in case you hadn't guessed.
