Soft shell crabs at Automat

We had an amazing trip to a gorgeous diner called Automat while we were away - our food was so good that i just had to take a picture...

I had a soft shell crab 'po boy' which if you could hear my rubbish impersonation of a New Orleans accent, translates as a 'poor boy'. Trust me there was nothing poor about it in the slightest! I've always wanted to try one after reading recipes with them in, and now I have and it was very well worth it!

Now I just need to find more of them and to start walking back to Yorkshire to burn off all the calories that are in them!

  2. Hi Gardener - you did too! Aren't they lovely, they're such a rare find here on menus, I'm going to have to keep an eye out for them!

  3. nice post...
    thanks for sharing information..

  4. Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog :) You should so try the crusty bread recipe, it's soooo easy and delicious. Maybe not as good as a soft shell crab though!
    Happy to have found your blog too :)
