The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Great chowder and seafood @ Crabby Jim's Seafood Restaurant, Monterey (California, USA)

Things are really busy for me, so it's been a bit quiet here on my blog. We celebrated baby girl's 2nd birthday last weekend (not a baby anymore!), and now preparing for my parents' arrival in Hong Kong. I have a lot of blogging material piling up, and I honestly cannot believe that I am still writing up about our California trip we did earlier in the year. We had lunch at Crabby Jim's in Monterey's Old Fisherman's Wharf after our scenic drive through the 17-Mile Drive. We tried several sample chowder being offered outside the seafood restaurants, and we liked Crabby Jim's the best, so that made it an easy decision for lunch. The food was fantastic, but the most memorable part of our meal was the great service we received from our lovely waitress, Priya. In fact, service on the whole was really good at this restaurant.

The dining room had a central fireplace feature:

Table with a view:

Delicious basket of crusty bread:

Fish & Chips for the kids (US$7.99) - breaded California cod, deep-fried and served with french fries with tartar sauce:

Hubby's Coconut Crusted Halibut (US$25.99), topped with lemon butter and tropical mango citrus sauce, served with potatoes and vegetables. The Asian-inspired sauce was delicious with the fish, and the potato gratin was yummy:

I got the Chowder Sourdough Bowl (US$12.99), which was lip-smackingly good. Better than the one we had the day before near the Aquarium:

Mexican Fried Ice Cream (US$7.50) - very rich, and lots of cream on the side. We had trouble finishing it:

Crabby Jim's is a good family-friendly option in the Old Fisherman's Wharf. Very good service, delicious food, and all at a good price. Thumbs up from us!
