Oyster (or shrimp) Po-Boy in {{gasp}} San Francisco

Generally I don't believe in eating food that's too far out of its native element and Cajun/Creole is way, way out of its element in San Francisco where little is more to be feared than . . . fat (or anything fried in it).  But sometimes you just get a craving, you know?  And if that happens, you should know (which is why I'm posting this) that there is a place to get a fried oyster po-boy (or a seafood beignet or gumbo or . . . .) that is simply wonderful; as good as I've had in NOLA (and I go to NOLA at least once a year).  The place is called Brenda's French Soul Food.  I guess Brenda, who is a New Orleanean, called it that because she thought "French" would go over better in the pretentious Bay Area than "Creole" but she sells Cajun/Creole food.   And she sells a lot of it.  Turns out the biggest downside to her place is that there's nearly always a line to get in, or at least there has been.  It's under enlargement (and the new section may be open by now--I'm out of town so I don't know for sure).
 
Here's Brenda's web site:  http://www.frenchsoulfood.com/home.htm
 
Here's a sadistic set of photos of her food:  http://www.yelp.com/biz_p...T96iyUhAQanv9aJpd8AHbw
