Guys Eating Stuff in San Francisco! (Dungeness Crabs)

So, I am currently staying in Berkeley, CA with my friend Alice who works/goes to school at UC Berkeley. Yesterday I slept a lot, and today I am going to do the same. My goal is to get “bored” because I am doing a backpacking trip this weekend in Yosemite, and one the week after in the Grand Canyon and I want to have a little energy/exploration inside me.

Some of Alice’s awesome friends in San Francisco were celebrating a birthday. So, the 5 of us went to PPQ Dungeness Island and got the Dinner for 6. Here is how it went:

Got off at the Civic Center stop near the Capital. There was some sort of hispanic celebration as can be seen in the photo. Not sure what for…

Ordered the “Dinner for 6” (There were 5 of us)

  • Imperial Rolls
  • Papaya Salad with Beef
  • Roasted Crab
  • Peppercorn Crab
  • Five Spices Chicken
  • Steamed Shiitake Seabass
  • Braised String Beans
  • House Garlic Noodles
  • Deep Fried Banana with Ice Cream

We all had bibs tied on by our waiter. I guess I should shave?

Here is the bib…

And an imported Vietnamese beer

I didn’t get pictures of this really good “green papaya salad” with seasoned beef in it. SOO good. And we also had some other kind of egg rollish things with pork in them. Oh, and the DELICIOUS sea bass. Soo very good.

Crab #1, Butter and Garlic

Garlic Noodles

Crab #2, some other seasoning

    I love it! Wow– that sounded like an amazing meal… I just wish you had included more of you in the act of ingesting.

    Me too. I realized after the meal that I had no ingesting photos. I really just was documenting the meal and guys eating stuff popped into my head to late! Next time gadget, next time.
