Crispy Softshell Crab Sandwich from The Dutch, $18
STUFF INSIDE :: fried softshell crab, tobiko, tomato
Poor, poor softshell crab. Poor, poor, delicious softshell crab. If the world were indeed created by an omnipotent bearded dude that lives in the sky, then he must’ve created the softshell crab the morning after way too many PBR and pickle-back specials with the party archangels. Seems like a complete lapse in judgment that a shell would be well…soft. (It’s probably the same day he made these fainting goats) It seems this poor crab was made solely for delicious purposes. As demonstrated by this sandwich. The batter adds some crispness to the already nice bite from the soft shell. The tobiko explodes to release the refreshingly salty flavor from the sea. Though it doesn’t come off being overly fishy. A simple but satisfying sandwich. Sorry, softshell crab. You may come from the seafood version of The Island of Misfit Toys, but you’re definitely appreciated. In my mouth.
