BackRhodes, that was a special meal.
Last night's dinner was at www.theboilingcrab.com
I learned that a friend had died right before leaving for dinner so I was very out of sorts.
There were ten of us at dinner and for the table we had 2 orders of Dungeness Crab, 2 orders of snow crab, 2 orders of Alaska King Crab (my favorite) and 2 orders of peel and eat shrimp.
The crab is ordered by order and charged per pound.
Shrimp is also by the pound.
With our order we each had a cob of corn, we shared 2 baskets of fries (one Cajun, one sweet potato), my mother had a cup of gumbo and there were drinks involved.
The tables are covered with a sort of waxed paper and the food brought to the table in plastic bags. You dig in to them and make a total mess out of everything.
I don't like touching my food, but this is an exception.
Total bill for 10 people, tax and tip included...
$233.00 Not bad for what we got.
The spice we chose was a combination of everything in the medium heat range. Nice and spicy, heavy on celery salt which was pronounced and delightfully delicious.
The restaurant is missing out. They should be selling bread to sop up all the good deliciousness.
For my Texas friends,...
There is one of these in Texas near Dallas/Richardson. I highly recommend it.
It's my favorite restaurant.
