Every year, we eagerly await the winter time because that’s when the fattest juiciest Dungeness crabs are available. And they are seriously good noms!
I found a local seafood restaurant that was running a crab festival menu to celebrate my Aunt Daphne’s birthday. They were super accommodating and let me bring in my homemade NY cheesecake without charging me an arm and a leg for the cake cutting fee. I ended up giving the manager and our server each a large slice of the cheesecake to enjoy.
Instead of bread, they gave us edamame and Pepperidge Farm Pretzel Fishies. Super cute! I like the fish theme… But we weren’t here to eat the pretzel fish and the shelled beans. We were here for the GOOD stuff…
Voila! Beautiful beautiful roasted crab… with a black pepper garlic sauce… served over garlic noodles. OMG. It was soooo good…. Good enough that we had ordered two of these suckers to share at the table.
It’s almost like looking at mirror images! Amongst our fav crab restaurants around here… we’re constantly eating at Crabhouse, Boiling Crab, and R and G Lounge.
