My Favorite Soft-Shell Crab Salad

I'm not one to get the same thing over and over at a restaurant, but, once in awhile, I find something worth repeating. See, e.g., Langer's #10.

On Sunday, I had one of my few usuals -- the soft-shell crab salad ($8.49) at Yashima (11301 W. Olympic Blvd., Ste. 210, Los Angeles). I've been repeating it for many years now.
Nothing else at this restaurant is really worth your time.

But this salad, dear readers, is so good that Mr. Monkey and I each get our own, so we don't have to share.

And, if you're a long-time reader, you know just how exceptional that is.


  1. mmmmm, i believe you on the do-over status! this looks yummy.

  2. Nice to know - I'll definitely check it out. I've been to a couple of places in that complex...

  3. FGD: There's a very generous portion of delicious dressing in a ramekin in the upper left corner of the photo. You can drown your salad to your heart's content.

  4. I don't do well with sharing if it's one of my favorites. I only share at new places to try lots of things.

  5. thanks for sharing! Never knew about Yashima. I just can't get enough of soft shell crab, its everywhere now but apaprently going out of season soon. Better get my fill now! Assume the dressing is good too?

  6. i haven't been to yashima in a few years since they changed chefs/owners, but i used to really like their tofu salad and sometimes their udon/soba... good to know that something is still good there.
