If you love seafood and aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty, then Kickin’ Crab is the place to go! Although there seem to be many options when it comes to cajun seafood restaurants in Southern California, Kickin’ Crab at the Irvine Center keeps us coming back time and time again. The service is great and the seafood is fresh and tasty! Alex and I enjoy Combo #1. Each time ordering the exact same thing. 2 lb. of Clams, 1 lb. of Shrimp, all sausage (rather than corn), medium spice w/ the Kickin’ Style seasoning. Along with a side of sweet potato fries & a side of steamed broccoli. We like to break up the broccoli and add it to the bag of seafood, so the broccoli can absorb all of the delicious flavors. Even though the Irvine Center location is spacious, offering both indoor & outdoor seating, the wait can be well over an hour anytime after 5pm on weekends. You may have to wait, but the saucy seafood is mouthwatering! So check it out, and get your hands dirty!
