Dungeness is available year-round and widely recognized as the best crab there is. Its tender, flaky white meat is sweet and delicate in flavor, and best served simply cracked and dipped in melted butter.
Haggen also offers Golden King crab, one of several king varieties available. The meat is snowy white with bright red highlights, and has a light, sweet flavor.
