Chinese Buffet Imperial Crab | The Hungry Jawn

I love the Chinese Buffet! I don’t know if I’ll ever not love eating at that place even though sometimes the thought of not know who is making my food or what their putting in it kind of freaks me out. Welp, worry no more because I think I’ve mastered one of my favorite dishes from this restaurant. Enjoy!

What do you think?


  1. PLEASE don't throw away those celery leaves, they add the best flavor ever to all kinds of dishes including the one that you are making here.

  2. Just made this and it's in oven now… Can't wait until I taste the 1st bite, my husband tried to stick his fingers in it while I was in the process of mixing all the ingredients together smh lol he can't even wait as well. I'll leave a update on how it came out.

  3. This is perfect and also the only one on YouTube that’s made like it is in the buffet thanks so much 🔥

  4. Wow thanks for this video. I just made it. My daughter's love it. We always eat it at the buffet. Thanks.

  5. I’m so greedy! I’ve never had this but I want to try it and I want to add shell noodles😂 looks good and thanks for sharing

  6. I made this yesterday for the family. Turned out the bomb. Very good and filling.
    I added extra ingredients.
    I added butter to the bottom of the tray and bread crumbs(panko). I also added a little bit of bread crumbs to the top.
    I used one different cheese that I already had and shrimp.
    Overall your recipe was amazing. Thank you so much for posting.
    You are truly talented. 😉

  7. WORD! Love how you ran right through this video. No long stories or us having to watch 5 minutes of cutting this and that. You did this right.

  8. Idk why I watch these when I’m hungry and don’t have ANY of the ingredients 🤷‍♀️ yumo

  9. oh, you need to show cutting into the bake, and serving on a dish, to show how it turned out! perfect video until the end. you gotta show on plate

  10. i like how you explain your choices and how each ingredient impacts the dish. well done. like the detail of NOT Miracle Whip vs Dukes – was about to use my opened Whip, but have Dukes in the cabinet! indeed this is a key difference between other videos, you explaining your thought process etc.

    i would have thought miracle whip better since the dish is so sweet at the buffet, but i'll trust you!

  11. You can also use a rolling pin on the package directly. Loosens the flakes so they break apart naturally when you combine together

  12. Another thing I do sometimes if I'm making an imitation crab dish, I use a wire or metal pastry cutter to chop and flake it up if I can only get the crab that's in big chunks. It makes getting that flaky consistency a breeze instead of tearing it apart or cutting it with a knife! I use a pastry cutter to chop up tuna or chicken when I'm making tuna or chicken salad too
