“Koppe Crab” (Female Snow Crab)


In Kyoto, the female snow crab is revered as the “Koppe crab.” A true seasonal delicacy, these crabs are prized for their richly flavored internal roe and the delightful pop of their external eggs — a unique taste experience distinct from the crab’s miso, or innards. This precious treat graces our tables only from early November through December.
