Q: Anyone else find the "hairy crab" a little disappointing?

Seems to be a big source of pride and can get quite expensive, but I was let down honestly. Was decent, but barely anything to eat. They also love to scoop up the head part, which is kinda gross.

Did you get one full of eggs?  They consider that the best part.  I found them pretty good, but like you said, not too much meat.  Give me a huge Alaskan King Crab any day.

I agree with John.  There is not enough meat in them. I prefer snow crab legs.  On the plus side for the hairy crab is that they live in lakes with tons of pollution so they pick up that extra special flavor.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
