Mom’s Food Porn

25 Aug

  Come on my friends… scoot up and get closer to the computer screen.  I have a new edition of Mom’s Food Porn.  A couple of weeks ago, mom/dad went to a place called Joe’s Crab Shack.  This is a chain restaurant that serves seafood.  Mom had a coupon (go mom!) for a free appetizer and plus they had a special going on for dinner.  I’ll tell you about that in a minute.

Let’s talk about the appetizer first.  Mom/Dad choose a sampler platter of fried calamari, crab dip with chips and something called great balls of fire.  The calamari was okay – this is fried squid.  Mom/dad said they have had better.  This was a little rubbery so they were thinking it was overcooked.  It’s in picture to the left – the curly looking things.  The crab dip in the middle was something that mom was hesitant about trying.  It’s loaded with crab meat, cream cheese and Parmesan.  Mom was pleasantly surprised that it was totally delicious!  In the left hand upper corner, that is the great balls of fire.  They are crab balls full of jalapeños and cream cheese coated in panko breadcrumbs.  Again, these were totally delicious!  So the appetizer wasn’t that bad for FREE – right?

Now for the main meal, Joe’s had a special where you could get 33 shrimp for $11.99 – so that’s what mom/dad went for.  The shrimp were coconut, beer battered and BBQ Rub peal and eat.  This was another winner here served with french fries.  The only down fall, the peel and eat were like deep fried.  They were delicious but if you are going to deep fry them, why not peel them first?  Of course, this is just a personal wish from mom.

So have you eaten at Joe’s lately?

    Mom used to eat at Joe’s when we lived in southern California. We haven’t looked for one here but the closest would be in the Sacramento area about 40 miles away.

      Oh WOW – that is a distance away. Mom/dad said they had a really awesome time that night. The shrimp and appetizer was scrumptious… not that this little oinker would know… tapping hooves. XOXO – Bacon

    I get the feeling you were not overwhelmed my friend. Although the prices seemed very reasonable. Calamari is easy to make rubbery. My bro used to catch and cook at home…I always seemed to drop by when this was going on and had to try it. I never tasted any that wasn’t rubbery. I thought that’s the way it was…all the time.

      Snorts! Mom said that she has had it plenty of times before when it was simply delicious – you wouldn’t even know what you were eating – not rubbery at all which is delightful. The prices were good here and that made mommy smile. However, like you said the food didn’t blow her away… but the shrimp was tasty. XOXO – Bacon
