Dungeness crab, prawns and clams in a rich tomato stew. You pick it from the shell. We provide the bib. $29.95 Fishermen’s Grotto, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this was SO delicious! The tomato stew was certainly rich and flavorful and there was A LOT of cracked dungeness crab in there. I had fun wearing the plastic bib and picking out as much crab meat as possible. 🙂
Cream based chowder served with oyster crackers. Cup $7.50 Fishermen’s Grotto, San Francisco CA
I was skeptical of this restaurant located smack down in the middle of touristy Fisherman’s Wharf, but the food was great! The service was cheesy especially with their outdated uniforms, but very friendly. And the people-watching can’t be beat, lol! This chowder tasted great and had a nice creamy texture.
Fresh sourdough bread. Complimentary
Yellow yarrow flowers (Achillea millefolium, Asteraceae), West Field Road.
Spaghetti, prawns, clams, mussels, fish, garlic, basil, white wine, red sauce. $15.95 Boulevard Cafe, Daly City CA
This restaurant is one of those places where the menu is gigantic and appears to contain food from all cuisines. Usually the food at these places are sorely lacking, but the things I ordered were actually pretty good. The tutto mare had plenty of seafood which I was surprised about since most places will skimp of the more expensive proteins. It had bold flavors and the pasta was perfectly al dente.
Avgolemono soup. Traditional Greek soup with chicken, rice, lemon and egg. $2.95
This was OK. It was mostly broth.
