You might think to yourself, do we really need another Viet-Cajun crawfish joint? Yes, Virginia. We do. Hot & Juicy Crawfish hails from Vegas, where it rules over Boiling Crab like Steve Wynn's empire lords over Fremont Street. This is the first and probably not last outlet we'll see of it in OC. The garlic-butter-lemon-and-hot-spice steeping sauce that the crawfish and boiled shrimp soaks in tastes very similar to all the others that you have, including Boiling Crab's but way more garlicky and sweeter by a factor of two. But the best item might just be the fried soft shell crab, which comes out not soggy, flattened, or clumped up with too much breading, but rather rigid, crispy, with the appendages still separate and distinct, fresh as fresh can be.
