Clearing out my picture files and i stumbled upon many records that i forgot to write about.  Coming from asia where we are surrounded by beautiful beaches and great seafood i never expected to experience one of the best seafood meals in SF.  After an hour in que (we were the last ones) we finally got a table.  It was a great experience, everyone sat at the counter bar and in front you can look at all the fresh seafood and drool and imagine what you would order when you finally got to sit down.  What we ordered:

Best Best UNI EVER!
Best Best UNI EVER!

1)  Sea Urchin – I was so lucky it was the last one and me and the last guy shared half of this humongous guy…. It was the best uni i ever tasted in my life… I still dream about it back in Thailand.

Can you see the amount of crab???

2)  Crab Salad – It was fresh veggies which is nothing new in a salad but the amount of crab meat stunned my friend into silence.  They just grabbed handfuls and placed it on the salad.  I mean it’s crab…..  It was fresh, sweet, firm chunks!  Delish… You cannot imagine…

3) Clam Chowder – Very Rich, creamy and good for dipping in the bread. Bread was cold but oh well we were there for the seafood.

Whata big fella
Whata big fella

4) Half a Dungeness Crab – This crab was a huge guy, in Asia crabs are big but this guy was probably from giant land.  My friend who was a crab lover sat quiet after 2 weeks of complaining about western food finally shut up and just ate and ate.

All you need is a squeeze of lemon!

5)  Half a dozen oysters – All mine.. All mine.  I forgot what i ordered but they were salty, juicy, and yum.

I dont think you can explain much about how seafood tastes like, i think it’s different from Thailand where everything is cooked and piping hot.  Eating cold fresh seafood really is a luxury and i appreciate just basic seafood and undressed.  Just enjoy it the way nature intended it.  Fresh and yum.  PS:  They open at 11am and last orders at 4.30pm if i’m not mistaken.
