The raw crab combo is truly unique, with marinated crab served over rice with a raw quail egg. You’ll mix it all up, wrap it in nori with some pickled vegetables, and end up with what is basically a really great crab hand roll. At lunch, most people here are eating the sul lung tang - dense, rich soup made from oxtail bones that is very good on a cool day (or, more likely, if you’re hungover).
