North Beach Crab Shack
OK, so it's really called the North Beach Lobster Shack, but when I saw crab on the menu, I didn't hesitate. And neither did my friend—the shredded texture of crab is so much more appealing than the springy flesh of lobster. I loves the crab. And a couple of fistfuls of the tasty stuff came out dressed in a little green-onion studded mayo, tucked into a buttery toasted bun with sides of so-so (read: dry and crumbly) potato salad, better (more moist and flavorful) cole slaw, pickles and ruffled potato chips. No, this ain't fat farm fare. But it's worth the calorie overload every once in a while. And, if I'm having a "fat" day, I figure i can order it naked—sans mayo ... mmm, yeah, not likely. Mayo is my friend.
