You’ll discover the delicious reasons why China goes crazy for these crabs two months every year as we sample whole hairy crabs and 5-6 dishes that incorporate them in a hairy crab specialty restaurant located deep in Shanghai’s Old Town neighborhood. And we’ll wash it all down with a huangjiu tasting platter, China’s answer to brandy – which Traditional Chinese Medicine doctors and sommeliers both agree is the perfect pairing with hairy crab.
