The Shrimp Lover (formerly known as the Boiling Shrimp) is basically a Thai owned version of the Boiling Crab. It resides on the 2nd floor of the Redondo Beach Pier, so it can be somewhat troublesome to find at first. The view is extremely beautiful and makes smashing critters that much more enjoyable.
Once inside, you’ll notice the familiar setup of tables covered in paper and rolls of paper towels. The bucket of seafood we got was around $35 and it came with shrimp, snow crab, king crab, mussels, and crawfish. Enough food to feed 2.5 baked Asians. They give you several different sauce options like the Boiling Crab, but with a Thai twist. I noticed the use of sweet basil in almost every dish. The service can be somewhat lacking and they aren’t the friendliest people, but its my go to joint when at the Redondo Beach Pier.
