Looks like another cold and wet weekend here in the OC. Well, what better way than to warm up with a nice, piping hot bowl of our very own homemade gumbo! It comes with shrimp, okra, veggies, meat, and a bunch of other goodies. And you also have the option of a scoop of white rice on top, like the one pictured. If you're trying to cut down on carbs, then by all means, please request no rice. Either way, you won't be disappointed because it's hearty, warm, and delicious. It's perfect for this weather. Come on in and we'll warm you up.

Even though we have 4 beers on tap and quite a few options for bottled beers, sometimes, you just want to have some sake. We carry these cute little sake bottles for $9.99 each. They are 375 mL bottles so they're not too big or intimidating. We think they're the perfect size for 2 people to share. We have three different flavors on hand: White Peach, Fuji Apple, and Lychee. Of course, they go great with our Cajun Seafood Combos and all of our awesome appetizers. Swing on by and get a bottle today, if you're tired of your usual drink.

We are about to make another update to our menu but in the mean time, we would like to highlight one of the best items we added recently.

We try to put a cajun twist on everything on our menu and that includes this entree of Fish & Chips. Our "chips" are actually are Cajun fries but you can always upgrade that for sweet potato fries or Cajun Garlic Fries for another dollar. This entree goes for $9.95 and like most of our other entrees, it's a large serving!

It's especially nice since Moms don't have to do any of the cooking nor does anyone have to do any of the cleaning. We'll take care of all that for ya! Plus, our current special is made for large parties: buy 3 lbs of crawfish, shrimp, clams, or mussels and get the 4th lb free. Yep, order a few of those combos for your entire crazy family.
In efforts to broaden our menu, we have Jalapeño Poppers as an appetizer! We like to give you a lot of options when it comes to appetizers so we invite you to try these bad boys out. You can get 3 pieces for $4.95. We halve a jalapeño, batter it up, and fry it to perfection. It's accompanied by a dipping sauce and they're fairly large for jalapeños. The nice thing about our poppers is that you can really taste the jalapeño when you bite into them. Give them a try today as you wait for your cajun seafood combo.
You really have the option to combine whatever seafoods you like at the Fire Crab. A current favorite is crawfish and clams, since live crawfish is still barely in season. It could run out at any time now but at least you can still take advantage of our buy 3 lbs, get the 4th lb free Cajun Seafood Combo Deal. Choose from crawfish, shrimp, clams, or mussels. May not be combined with any other deal or discount. We're open from 3pm till 10pm on the weekdays, and from noon till 10pm on the weekends. We hope to see everyone real soon.
An item that's always been on our menu but we've neglected to promote until now is our Coconut Sea Snails. The coconut is actually a coconut milk so it's very creamy. It's traditionally a Vietnamese dish but of course, we put our little Fire Crab spin on it :-). You eat it the same way you eat crawfish heads: you suck the little snails out of their shells. If you're too high class for that, you can always use a toothpick, which takes forever. Hey, who cares about manners when you're eating with your hands and leaving a mess all over the tables anyway ;-). Available in regular or spicy!
We're not sure if this feisty little crawfish is being suggestive or telling you off but either way, you should just do what it says and eat it. It's a simple request. Of course, we'll cook it up for ya. Just pick what sauce you'd like and how how you want it. After we do all the cooking, it's up to you how you wanna eat it. Just the tail? Or do you suck on the head? It's kind of a waste if you do not suck the heads. There so much flavor in there. Just try it once and you won't think twice about sucking the head in the future.
Can't decide what to get during our Buy 3 pounds, get the 4th pound free deal? Well, get a bucket of each! We are still doing the buy 3 lbs of crawfish, shrimp, clams, or mussels and get the fourth pound free deal so it only makes sense to go ahead and get 4 pounds of everything. So that come out to 16 pounds of seafood for the cost of 12 pounds. Yeah, we didn't do that well in math while we're in school but we're pretty sure that's a pretty good deal. Live crawfish is in limited supplies so act now while we still have them.
Our ultimate goal every time you come and visit the Fire Crab is for you to leave happy. We love seeing you happy because that means we did our jobs right. We try to give you the best possible service with the best possible food every time you come and visit. So whether you want to come with just a few friends or your entire family or crew, feel free to swing on by and eat up some Cajun goodness that will surely make you happy. Of course, our "Get the 4th lb free Cajun Combo Deal" is also another reason why you should be happy.
We have 3 different types of baked oysters to choose from. There's Dynamite, Peanuts & Chives, and Ying-Yang. As you can see from the picture, Ying-Yang consists of 2 different colored masagos (roes) on a baked oyster, red and black. Every order comes with 6 freshly-shucked oysters and they're only made when you order them. If you like seafood, then this is the dish for you. It's fish eggs on top of an oyster. That's seafood on top of seafood. Yumminess on top of yumminess. Just another one of our awesome seafood appetizers you gotta try out soon!
We couldn't really call ourselves a cajun restaurant if we didn't have Cajun Wings, now could we? We have crafted our very own unique blend of cajun spices that you will surely appreciate with every bite of our Cajun Wings. You can order them in a 5 or 10 count and you have other wing flavors to choose from, like Honey BBQ, Lemon Pepper, and Fish Sauce. Honey BBQ has obviously a sweeter taste to it and the Fish Sauce has a sweet and savory taste to it. Lemon Pepper tastes like lemon and pepper, haha. All 4 have unique tastes of their own and none of them are ever a bad choice!
