Thanh Long, San Francisco
This is the more relaxed version of Crustaceans (San Francisco, Beverly Hills) Be prepared to get down and dirty. Get the garlic noodles to accompany the meal. Good, stiff mixed drinks as well.
Favorite Dish: Roasted crab. Good lord. ROASTED FREAKIN CRAB!!!
The food, the food, and the food!!!
Once you get into the resturant after about 30 minutes wait with reservation, (90 minutes without reservation), you will notice immediately that the roast crab is on every table. People are here for the most famous 'roast crab' and 'garlic noodle'.
And no matter how you try, they don't tell you the recipe. It's their 'family secret'. :)
