Michael has finally arrived in San Francisco, and now the Three Musketeers of SF are ready to take on the world!
Our first meal, as to welcome Michael, is Crab House.
I had wanted to eat some seafood since I got here (you know, #baylife and whatnot), and Boris said one of his friends had been to this place and that it was quite good. We knew it was going to be expensive, but we thought once in a while should be okay.
$173.59 was the bill.
I mean the crab was great, charred to perfection, seasoned beautifully with garlic rub and sauce; the meat is fresh, and overall fantastic. The fries were great too, probably the best I’ve had.
But $174 is a lot of money.
That’s about how much my Pebble cost from Amazon. I don’t think the taste of this place justifies the price, despite knowing that fresh Dungeness crab cost about $24 a pound, and that $149 got us 3 crabs (weighing around 7.5 pounds); I still felt cheated somehow.
If you’re a crab fan and is super rich, this is the restaurant for you, but this place left me wanting more for what I paid. I still think the mussels I had in Montreal at $25 CAD for a giant pot was the best, especially that sauce.
I’ll still need to find a seafood place for me, it’s not this place.
