Soft shell crab, one of the most delicious New Orleans delicacies is only in season during the late spring and early summer months. During that time you'll find it on the menus of every fancy shamncy restuarant in the city, along with some more low key po boy joints.
The best soft shell crab po boy I have never had is from Ninja Sushi. Ninja only makes this po boy a few times a year for festivals, but it is fantastic! The tempura batter and spicy mayo add a nice Japanese twist to this Louisiana classic. Definitely try one of these stunners next time you see them at Po Boy Fest!
