Crawfish v Shrimp: Dawn of Cajun Goodness

Crawfish v Shrimp Dawn of Cajun Goodness Seafood Fire Crab Garden Grove Orange County OC

Batman v Superman might be coming out soon but we have a battle on our hands everyday! It's always the age-old question of crawfish or shrimp? No one truly loves both equally. You have to love one more than the other, just like your kids. You either like the juicier and more flavor-absorbing crawfish or the meatier, easier-to-peel shrimp. And typically, it's divided right down the sex line. Women prefer crawfish. Men prefer shrimp (because it's easier to peel and more meat rewarding). Luckily for you, you can always get however much you want of either at our restaurant. You could even get the same amount. :-)

Would You Like Crawfish on a Rooftop? With K-Pop?

Crawfish on Rooftop with K-Pop Garden Grove Orange County OC Fire Crab

We've finally found some time to revisit the genius that is our commercial. It's a multiple part commercial inspired by Dr Seuss rhymes. It accomplishes everything we aimed for. It's funny, it's witty, and it reinforces the fact that we have crawfish and can pair it with a number of different seafood options. Here is one of the first rhymes: Would you like crawfish on a rooftop? No, I would like my crawfish while watching some k-pop! Why does this make sense? Because we're located on Garden Grove Boulevard, the heart of the Korean District and lover of k-pop in all its glory. This rhyme can be found in part 1 of our commercial: https://youtu.be/O3wXU4nh2V8
