Despite the immigration rally in Hollywood, I still made it over to Hungry Cat for Crab Fest. I think because of the slight downturn in customers (due to the hindrance of traffic), I was able to get a spot without reservations.
The prix-fixe menu included a really flavorful crab soup, a wonderfully meaty crab cake, and all you can eat boiled blue crabs as well as all the grilled corn and cornbread you want. Also included was a plum shortcake dessert.
My final tally - eight of them. I probably could have done more on a different day, but I always say that it's best to leave a party while you're still enjoying yourself. The crab were well seasoned and it was fun finding a few fatty crabs also.
I kept a running diary of the day plus took lots of pictures.
