28 dec.

on tues 23rd, me and the parents went to Anchor&Hope.

borught to you by the same people who brought you Town Hall, and Salt House, it’s a must-eat in SF.

the yelpers tell me i need to get the sea urchin.  the concierges tell me i need to get the sea urchin.  everybody i talk to tells me that i need to get the sea urchin.

and what did i do?

i got the sea urchin.

and you know what?  it tasted like crab/lobster. swimming in remoulade and potato.  it wasn’t bad.  but i don’t understand what the hell everyone was yelping about.

yeah, it looked weird. but it tasted like nothing. here’s a pic from my phone.

we also had the “fish fries with eyes”.  whole smelts with remoulade.  they tasted like…  fried anything.

the parents split the paella. kick ass.

i had a fancy version of fish n chips.  the fish was light, and crispy, not the least bit greasy.  cool.

we also had a side of brussel sprouts. WAY WAY WAY too salty. even for me, and i’m a salt fiend!
