Fritters – Next Door

Fritters - Next Door
Blue crab, yellow corn, and pimento cheese fritters served with comeback sauce. $12
Next Door, Memphis TN

These fritters were really tasty especially with the comeback sauce. I didn’t realize that there were going to be 3 different kinds of fritters in the bowl. I think my favorite was the pimento cheese for its gooey texture, but the blue crab for the flavor.

The original clam bake cioppino – The Old Clam House

The original clam bake cioppino - The Old Clam House
Clams, mussels, crab, shrimp, calamari, fish filet, potatoes, carrots, onions, olives, garlic, corn in a spicy cioppino sauce. Couple $49.99
The Old Clam House, San Francisco CA

OMG, this was SO much food! This was pretty much a small pail of cioppino for only two people, and it was SO delicious! I liked that the sauce was on the spicy side. Most cioppinos are kinda bland these days. This cioppino was also packed with seafood. This was definitely worth it, and I would go back for this dish. Noms!

Eggs Louis “cayenne” – Rick’s Cafe

Eggs Louis cayenne - Rick's Cafe
2 poached eggs, crab meat, spinach, English muffins, homemade “cayenne” hollandaise sauce, served with potatoes and fruit. $14.99
Rick’s Cafe, Los Altos CA

This was good, but nothing really jumped out at me. I did like that they provided a lot of spinach. The potatoes (and fruit) were kinda sad though. And even the “cayenne” hollandaise sauce was lackluster.
