Crab King BellevueBellevue has become a dining mecca and one of the city’s newest restaurants, Crab King, will be celebrating its Grand Opening April 28th through 30th by offering the house Shabu Shabu multi-course menu for half price.  Xiaomeng Liu and his wife Peipei have based their specialized Northern Japanese style restaurant on a favorite Sapporo crab house called Kani Sho-gun.   Similarly crustacean focused, Crab King serves fresh crab in many dishes, including Red King, Japanese Snow and Dungeness.
