The cool wind blows in the morning and evening, and I feel that autumn has arrived. September, when the temperature slowly drops, is so full of seasonal seafood that it is called seafood season. Along with gizzards and shrimp, “blue crab,” which is completely full of meat and enticing with bursting eggs, is a seasonal seafood representative of autumn. From steamed blue crab, where you can fully enjoy the unique flavor of blue crab without any seasoning, to soy sauce crab with a secret recipe, and spicy steamed blue crab with a spicy and sharp sauce that enhances the taste!

“Mokpo Mountain Crab” offers a variety of dishes using fresh blue crab imported from the west coast, such as crab soup, steamed blue crab, and soy sauce crab. The signature menu, “Steamed blue crab,” steams blue crab without any seasoning at the same time as ordering. If you take a bite of a blue crab that is full of immaculate flesh, the natural flavor of the blue crab that fills your mouth is exquisite. The salty blue crab broth that comes with it is also a subtle delicacy.
