LA Crawfish

1005 Blalock Houston, TX 77055 | Outer Loop - NW | 713-461-8808

Location Description:

LA Crawfish is a crawfish joint, yes. But it's so much more than that. The restaurant — located in the food court of a Chinese grocery store — also offers other seafood boiled by the pound (and will even boil whatever you bring them) such as shrimp, snow crab and king crab. But it also offers its own unique creations, from Chinese five-spice chicken wings to crawfish empanadas and even crawfish pho. Come early to avoid a too-long line, and bring a group. You'll want to order one of everything.
