Crab: Your Best Friend with Ten Legs

Soft shell crab, crab cakes, ginger crab, these are some of the ways you can enjoy your favorite decapod at the Akasaka Federal Way Japanese restaurant. We stand by our crab, so we feel the need to step up on its behalf when we hear people question the nutritional merit thereof. Crab, in all its delicious forms, is a healthy choice for any good seafood patron.

First and foremost, crab contains omega-3 fatty acids. This is a trait of all shellfish, and it’s one of the best reasons to eat seafood. The benefits to your heart have been well-documented. On top of this, crab also features chromium and selenium. The former is good for preventing or managing diabetes, as it facilitates the metabolization of sugar and therefore lowers the glucose level of your blood. The latter is a valuable antioxidant that helps to battle carcinogens, including cadmium, arsenic, and mercury.

So come sink your teeth into a good piece of crustacean! Akasaka Restaurant is always a great choice in a pinch!
