Over the weekend, Ray and I stopped by Central Market. There are only 2 locations in all of Texas and they are both in the Austin area. The local supermarket chain here, HEB, which dominates all of Texas, created Central Market to compete with Whole Foods...which started out in Austin. Central Market has the feel of Whole Foods, but much better. The variety of gourmet foods they have is unsurpassed. Prices are VERY high, but we believe that top quality here is always something you can expect...so, you really do get what you pay for. While there, we decided to check if they had crawfish...and they did. Yay!!! Crawfish boil for us.
We bought 4 pounds and this is the final result. It looks like a lot, but at the end of it all, most of the crawfish is just shell. The meat of the crawfish is really small. You usually finish the meal feeling pissed off because it's not worth all the work.
Needless to say, Ray had the runs after this meal. Not a pretty sight.
