SAN FRANCISCO – Welcome to San Francisco, California, and when it comes to eating, the king of all foods is the Dungeness crab. Today, we”;re going on a Dungeness crab food tour in San Francisco. We”;ll start at a local fish market, then to the popular tourist pier 39, and finish with legendary garlic Dungeness crab and garlic noodles.
Again, thank you to Visit California (and Visit San Francisco) for sponsoring my trip.
Alioto Lazio Fish Co (https://g.page/AliotoLazioFishCo?share) – To begin this Dungeness crab tour in San Francisco we started with a trip to Alioto Lazio Fish Co, a generations-old family run seafood distributor. Among other seafoods, what they are most known for is Dungeness crab that you can buy live. They also offer small cups of pre shelled crab that you can taste test. It was a good way to begin this tour.
Crab House at Pier 39 (https://g.page/crabhouseatpier39?share) – Next up, just down the road we headed over to Pier 39, probably the most famous of all places in all of San Francisco. Yes, it”;s touristy, but it”;s really nice and a great place to walk around, and of course to see the colony of California sea lions. For lunch we headed over to Crab House at Pier 39, a restaurant that of course focuses on Dungeness crab. Their famous dish is Dungeness crab served on a smoking iron skillet. The crab is roasted in butter, bathed in a secret spice sauce mixture, and drizzled in white wine tableside to smoke on the hot iron. The crabs were fantastic, sweet, and naturally delicious.
Thanh Long Restaurant (https://goo.gl/maps/HPVbjseiG2kdNdNc6) – The Dungeness crab restaurant I was most looking forward to trying was Thanh Long Restaurant, a legendary Vietnamese American restaurant that was one of the first Vietnamese restaurants in San Francisco. It was amazing to hear a little behind the scenes of how the restaurant got started. The roasted crab and garlic noodles recipes are top secret – really a guarded family secret and they even have a secret kitchen to make them in where only family members are allowed. Their crabs are amazing, so garlicky and peppery, and then combined with the most addictive garlic noodles you”;ve ever had in your life – it”;s a heavenly combination.
And that completes this Dungeness crab tour in San Francisco!
