Happy National Crab Rangoon Day!

The purpose of this post is to discuss the history of fried wontons filled with cream cheese and crab meat with you. Cool? Cool!

Though the history of Crab Rangoon is a little murky, it is widely accepted to have been invented in 1950s United States by Polynesian-style (read: Tiki) restaurateurs. In fact, the oldest dated menu featuring Crab Rangoon was the Trader Vic's in 1956 San Francisco. Fair to say they are the best invention of the Twentieth Century? We think so!

And look what day has finally arrived: National Crab Rangoon Day! For the occasion, our Chef Doug Psaltis has created a special sampling of Crab Rangoon:

Green Curry Rangoon
Smoky & Spicy Rangoon
Blue Crab Rangoon
2 pieces of each, $11

We're open from 5pm-2am today, for all of your fried cream cheese needs.
