Soft shell crabs, oysters and scallops at Peach Farm (w/pics)

Rubee | Jun 1, 2007 12:45 PM

This afternoon I finally had my first soft shell crabs of the season. Four of us met at Peach Farm in Chinatown for lunch. In addition to the fresh crispy fried ssc, we also ordered scallops in the shell with garlic and noodles, huge steamed oysters in black bean sauce, and peapod stems. Great company and a great seafood lunch. After, hit Super 88 and picked up some ground pork, Kewpie mayo, fish sauce, cilantro and pea pod stems, frozen steamed buns, and Ranier cherries. Finished up with ice cream at Wai Wai - coconut and banana. I liked the banana better. Finally, ordered some beef with peppers from Taiwan Cafe to-go "for later". Of course, even though I had just eaten lunch, I had to have a little bit when I got home. I have to say that since recently enjoying Wang's version of this dish, I think I prefer Wang's (Somerville) - less oily and the peppers were crisper. TC's was still good though - one of my favorite dishes there. E had some wrapped up in a tortilla as a burrito - really good!
