"Louisiana Cajun seafood" restaurant targets Beijing’s glamour set

A restaurant in Beijing’s entertainment district is offering  distinctly American flavors to Chinese consumers with its “Cajun crabs,” as well as clams and mussels on the menu for the upcoming mid-Autumn festival. 

Located in the Sanlitun district of Beijing, the Boiling Pot doesn’t list menu prices for many items – these are based on “seasonal supply” – however, it is selling Boston lobster and Alaska king crab at CNY 429 (USD 64.57, EUR 55.05) each, while a listing for “cajun shrimps” at CNY 38 (USD 5.72, EUR 4.88) for four pieces suggests the restaurant is clearly going for the upper end of the market.
