Season runs through the eighth, ninth and tenth months of the lunar calendar. Originated as a delicacy among the Shanghainese community but has gained popularity throughout China and in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Dubai. They are noted for their golden roe and are typically eaten with black vinegar with slices of ginger and savoured with yellow wine or finished with a cup of ginger tea to counteract the inherent "cooling" nature of the Hairy Crab.

Bought from the same seller last year during hairy crab season. Value for money. Next day delivery upon placing the order. All 10 crabs are alive and fresh. Should place the crab belly up when steaming. Will definitely buy again. Thank you for making special arrangement for the delivery.

Seller is accomodating and sent the items on preferred date. Quality of the crabs? Hmm...it's too good that's why forgot to take picture earlier! Busy eating. Will i order again? MOST DEFINITELY. If you're having six crabs, please order extra bottle of vinegar. Luckily i did! Yums!
