The Kickin’ Crab is Cajun seafood with an Asian kick

Jan Nguyen and her family immigrated to the USA from Vietnam back in the 1970s with the little that they could carry. Her family landed in Louisiana where she worked in restaurants where she quickly learned the Cajun style of cooking. Incorporating what was available in the bayou from crawfish to shrimp, she was introduced to a range of spices and flavor profiles quite different from her native Vietnamese cuisine. In her years in the restaurant business, she began tasting foods and then recreating them at home with her own twist. Her dream of having a restaurant serving Cajun seafood for families in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, became a reality with the 2010 opening of
The Kickin’ Crab located in Santa Ana, CA. In less than 4 years, The Kickin’ Crab has grown to 7 locations in Orange County, Los Angeles County, and Santa Clara County with 2 locations opening soon.

Crawfish in Garlic Butter

We ordered just crawfish in Garlic Butter with mild heat. When the 3 pound bag came to the table, my mom and I were aghast. We polished it off Hawaiian-style with no leftovers. We probably could have done another pound but someone would have had to roll us to the car. Once you get started, the sauce and the taste of the crawfish are so addictive. You can’t stop! Thumbs up, way up!
