I think that you can probably already see in this pic that the lobster is WAY overcooked.  Why, why, why!?  This was another sad plate at The Lobster House.  I just checked on Yelp and this place only has 2 stars.  I should have checked before we dined here!  The sides were throw-away items that did nothing to save the butchered lobster tail.

Cajon shrimp – The Lobster House

Omg!  These shrimp were SO overcooked!  This plate made me more than a little sad.  Everything on it was poorly cooked and/or drenched in butter to try and cover up the bad quality of the ingredients.  I couldn’t taste much of the cajun flavor on the shrimp since the overcooked taste overpowered everything.  Sadly, this was a meal I can’t take back.  😦

Sausage and lentil soup – Credo

Sausage lentil soup Credo
Warm soup with sausage, lentils, zucchini, squash, white beans, carrots, potatoes, onions, celery, and topped with chopped parsley.

Credo, San Francisco

This hearty soup tasted surprisingly light considering the amount of ingredients.  The trick to soups with this many vegetables is to cook them all to the same doneness.  Unfortunately, the carrots and white beans in this soup were mushy compared to the other vegetables.  However, it was still a nice, tasty soup for a warm summer day.
