Hi, we will be in Alaska for a cruise trip in June. We stop at Jenau, Skagway & Ketichan with a few extra days for Anchorage.
When we travel, we love to try the local cuisine. Apart from crab and salmon, is there anything else that is essential for us to try that is 'Alaskan'? I saw that there are reindeer hotdogs in Sitka but we don't port there. Also, not sure if whale is available to tourists?
I noticed Tracy's King Crab Shack in Jenau was very popular but I was shocked at the price. Is this correct or is this place a tourist trap? - i.e. 1x large Alaskan Bering Sea Red King Crab LEG only (10-12 oz) = $24. Is this the most famous crab shack in Alaska?
By the way, I'm curious - is Alaska bombe (the dessert) really Alaskan?
With thanks :)
