Go Ahead, Be Crabby. Karai Crab at The Willows — is the world going crazy for crab or have we not had at least four openings lately? — is open at The Willows, with a crab-cominated menu created by chef Miles Miyamoto. Other crustaceans and even mollusks also join the fun. (“Karai,” by the way means spicy or hot when applied to food, but in this case, it doesn’t always mean heat but bright, fresh flavors.)

The Willows, 901 Housten St.; open daily 11am–10pm. Reservations: 952-6990.

More Eggs, Please. Eggs ‘n Things will quietly open a third location in a few days, with an official grand opening Nov. 8, at 451 Piikoi. And there’s free parking!!!!!!!! The Waikiki locations remain in operation.

Eggs ‘n Things III, 451 Pi’ikoi; 6am-10pm Sun.-Thurs.; 6am-midnight, Fri. Sat. 538-3447.

Where’s the meat? In a state all but devoid of meat processing plants it’s interesting news that the County of Hawaii has approved a $4.15 million improvement plan for the state’s Paauilo slaughterhouse, operated by Hawaii Beef Producers, including 40 percent increased processings capacity.

Pa’auilo Slaghterhouse, 43-2007 Paauilo Mauka Rd.; 808 776-1771.
