Crab Stack @ La Thai Cuisine

500BestSquareCrab Stack In Three Layers @ La Thai Cuisine

This sounds irresistible and insane at the same time. It works because La Thai is as much a Louisiana-style restaurant as a Thai explorer. And because this is a tower of crabmeat. . . and how far wrong could you go with that? The tower begins with a crab cake, forming the foundation. Then a soft-shell crab mounts the stack, to be topped with jumbo lump crabmeat. A Thai-style chili glaze amplifies all the flavors. For crab fanatics with exotic tastes. This will only get better as we advance into crab season and as the water temperatures warm.
