For some reason, at this moment, I am struck by a peculiar desire to get coconut shrimp; what I'm picturing is the crispy fried kind beloved by the kind of chain restaurant a friend dubbed "brass and fern bars." Okay, it's a weird craving, but what can I say?
Unfortunately, I can't think of a single place offhand that has these anywhere, even the chain brass and fern bars that come to mind. And at least in theory, some non-chain restaurant could do these. Right?
Anyone ever seen these? I work in Mountain View and live in Foster City, so I'm thinking primarily of the Peninsula as a target area (as far south as Cupertino, as far north as Daly City), although if someone knows of a good place outside that region I'd be interested in hearing about it on general principle.
