Huynh De Crab

Visiting Quy Nhon, visitors can easily find a restaurant to enjoy seafood specialties, the most notable of which is the Huynh De crab. This kind of crab is only in waters from Quang Ngai to Binh Dinh and is proclaimed as the king of crabs because of its unique characteristics. Its shell is thick and hard and has yellow colour as the king's coat, with tiny thorns along the body. The white meat has sweet, salty flavor.

According to the old local fishermen, once upon a time, on excursions on beautiful waters, the king saw fishermen catch strange crabs with strange red cell and look like turtles, so he tried this kind of crab. Finding this crab delicious and  good for health, he asked the local people to offer this kind of crab to the palace. Since then. It was called Huynh De Crab (King Crab). This crab can be processed as: steamed, baked, roasted with tamarind or with salt ... but the best and easiest way to make is to steam with salt and green chili pepper or to boil then process as porridge. What wonderful it is to enjoy Huynh de crab, listening to the whispering sound of the waves and breathing the salty taste of the sea air or sitting in an elevated position looking at the vast sea .
