I've been there. I took my gwai-lo friend there when he visited back in January. We just thought it was funny cause the name and sign is pretty much a ripoff of "The Boiling Crab" so we decided to try it. We went during lunch and the place was absolutely dead. When we went in, there was no one else there.
I remember I ordered something non-seafood related, some type of sandwich dish. The buns on the sandwich had little bread claws attached to them, that was a cute touch.
The food wasn't anything special but the service was surprisingly good. I remember the waitress was pretty patient with us when explaining the menu. My friend ordered something, but then several minutes later she came back and told us that they actually didn't have that dish today. So my friend had to order something else. We weren't too happy about this but ok shit happens.
However, the surprising twist was that they later rectified the situation by giving us a free platter of crabs! For those living in Taiwan, you guys know how incredibly rare this type of thing is. A truly commendable gesture
So the service was great and the free crabs were actually pretty damn good too. But of course free food always tastes better
When I left, I tipped the girl a 100 bux. She was surprised and grateful as she's probably never received a single tip in her whole life.
Go ahead and give this place a try.
