New York-Based King Crab Juicy Seafood Will Open Two San Diego Locations

June 8, 2021

Taking over the space occupied by Souplantation in San Diego's Midway District for nearly four decades is King Crab Juicy Seafood, a New York-based Cajun seafood boil concept set to open this fall.

Qing Feng Wu and Jenny Zhang opened the first King Crab Juicy Seafood in Rochester, NY, in May 2019, and the company now has more than 25 locations dotted around New York, Texas, Virginia, Massachusetts, Maryland, and Florida. The San Diego branch aims to open by this summer in the sprawling Midway Towne Center space that was occupied by Souplantation from 1983 until the company folded last year. A second San Diego location is also in the works for Carlsbad. 

Like other King Crab Juicy Seafood restaurants, the San Diego branch will offer a menu of Cajun and Creole spiced boiled seafood with a Vietnamese twist, as well as fried seafood, pasta, po-boy sandwiches, salad, and appetizers. Based on the success of the first San Diego locations, more may open in the near future. 

King Crab Juicy Seafood is expected to open this November at 3960 W Point Loma Boulevard in San Diego's Midway District. For more information about King Crab Juicy Seafood, visit
