This is what our cab driver, who picked us up at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, asked us as we got into the cab. To which we answered, thinking that he was just asking the typical question he asks anyone who has been at the Wharf….
“Why yes! We sure did have the crabs. Why? Can you smell them?” haha…. This was Frank’s reply while trying to be funny.
“Well it wasn’t a wild guess!” the witty cab driver replies.
Uhm….3 second awkward pause…..hahahahahahaha “Oh sorry, we tried to cover up the garlicky smell with alcohol.”
“I got a whiff of that too!” he replied. uhm…..
Yes, this was the conversation and of course we all ended up laughing. We stunk like garlic crabs and alcohol and we knew it and were not ashamed. Oh no! I’d do that meal all over again each day and would walk around stinking for the rest of my life if I could. Yes I would!
We actually visited The Franciscan Crab Restaurant 4 times during our honeymoon. We picked it on our first night after barely leaving our hotel and deciding that we must eat right away. The Franciscan is on the water and surrounded by glass. It looked like just as good of a place as any. We were not disappointed.
Here’s The Franciscan’s menu, We shared the Crab Louie Salad, the Crab Chowder Soup, the Shrimp Pescatore Tureen, the Garlic Steamed Clam Tureen and then for our entrée …the Sizzling Iron Skillet Roasted Dungeoness Crab, Shrimp and Mussels combo. OOOOOOH YEA!!! Oh! We also had fabulous cocktails. I think mine was called a Mermarita. Get it? It’s a combo mermaid and margarita. yuk yuk…snort!
Here’s the seafood combo that we had for our main course. Yummy, huh?
Here’s me, drinking my Mermarita and wearing a bib. Yep, a bib. See the binoculars on the table? That’s so we could look out the huge windows at all of the boats or take a look at Alcatraz.
I’m tellin ya, you can’t miss this place if you ever make it over to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. You must!!
Ok, enough said. I think I got my point across. Sorry, I thought we’d taken more to show you, but we get rather excited when we eat and I guess we forgot. Enjoy.
