Dinner #1 in the Bay Area was a meal at Boiling Crab with Sara, Jane, Lizzie, and Tolu (all of whom I share horrific temp memories with). We like to call these Friendship Renewal Dinners. You see, we’re friends. Good friends even. But we never see each other. When we do, we pick up right where we left off and our friendship continues refueled by our recent meetup and musings.
Boiling Crab was a personal request since I’ve heard that it recently made its way to the Bay Area. It’s in South San Jose (like super south, like the second to the last exit before you’re officially Gilroy-bound) and actually not far from my godparent’s old hood off of Capitol Expressway and Silver Creek Road.
This, my friends, is going to require a plastic bib.
I had a super jam packed day yesterday which started in Tampines and ended in Chinatown to partake in the last night of the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Tatay had mentioned that he had eaten some awesome food in Chinatown back in the day when his ship made a stop in Singapore in the 70s. Imagine my happiness when we found Smith Street and got to do a little street eatin’ ourselves.
