Softshell Crabs-anywhere?

Trish | Jun 20, 200409:58 PM

I've been living here for about 4 years. I moved from Washington DC- Here are the things I miss most: great inexpensive seafood, chewy but crispy bagles with nova lox, real barbque that's rubbed with spices and smoked for day (not smothered in sweet stuff and stringy), chili without beans, real cuban food and crispy, to die for, deep fried soft shell crab that's pretty much available at most restaurants as either a standard item or special.

I love Portland, I am just overall disappointed that most of the time, I must spend a fortune to get really "to die for" food that I could get in DC for about $7-15 an entree.

The one exception that I found was the BlackFish Cafe in Lincoln City, wow! I was totally blown away at the gormet quality and the prices were so reasonable. It's the only time I've been "wowd" since I moved here, and it didn't make a huge dent in my pocktet book.

Anyone know where I can get softshells, I would really appreciate it!
