With a name like Raging Crab, it’s no wonder this Keeaumoku Street hot spot is all the “rage” among seafood lovers who clamor for plenty of Cajun/Creole-inspired fare. Patrons prepare to get messy as they dive right into mounds of Dungeness crab, king and snow crab legs, lobster, shrimp, mussels and more.

Raging Crab offers a sea of flavors, and recently has reeled in guests who crave the restaurant’s Raging Bread Bowl.

“The inspiration for our Raging Bread Bowl came from our travels to cities including San Francisco, where bread bowls are popular,” says co-owner JC Moto. “To be different, we added a Cajun twist to the chowder.”

“We introduced this dish about a month-and-a-half ago, and our customers seem to really enjoy it.”

Creamy, rich clam chowder is served hot and fresh.

Genuine comfort food, the chowder features morsels of bacon and Manila clams soaked in clam juice with bits of onion and celery, chunks of potato and half-and-half milk, along with the eatery’s special seasoning.

A round loaf of sourdough bread (with a large part of the center carved out) creates an edible bowl. Bread bowls always are a plus because the bread absorbs the chowder, a perfect accompaniment to the meal. The scooped out bread also is great for dipping!

Raging Bread Bowl is large enough to share and can be enjoyed as a meal or as a starter. The bowl is priced at $8 with the purchase of Captain Special ($65-$69.99; limit one bread bowl per Captain Special), a feast that includes your choice of lobster, Dungeness crab or king crab, along with a cluster of snow crab legs, clams, shrimp, mussels, potato, corn, sausage, rice and Cajun fries. Hope you’re hungry!
