Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!!!

For my birthday on Wednesday June 4th, Ray took me to dinner at Truluck's...a local seafood restaurant well known here in Austin.

We knew going in that it was going to be pricey. No dungeness crab in these here parts. Truluck's serves stone crab fished from their very own fisheries. I ordered the North Atlantic Jonah Crab Claw Platter and as you can see, there were 9 claws on my platter. Ray had the Alaskan King Crab which came with one ginormous crab leg. He wanted to support the fishermen from his favorite show "Deadliest Catch". From the price we paid for that one claw, we understand why those fishermen make so much money.
The meal ended with a chocolate lava cake...on the house. So, overall, we were happy with the meal. It was very good, however, definitely a bit pricey for our taste. Being Chinese, we would still be happier going to a good Chinese restaurant and ordering the typical crab cooked with green onion and ginger.
