I had previously featured this random meal the last time I had visited San Francisco but it was so good, I decided to eat the same not so random meal again for this foodcation. We have for our random meal of the day an order of Stuffed Artichoke with Bay Shrimp. We start with a fresh large artichoke and then split it in half. It is then grilled to a smoky perfection. The grilling brings out a rustic smoky richness to the artichoke and each layer is just as awesome as the last. One half of the artichoke is filled with large bay shrimp while the other half is filled with large Dungeness crab. The grilled stuffed artichoke is placed on fresh salad and served with a side of crispy cheesy garlic bread. The funniest part of this photo opp was that it was pouring rain right outside that seemed to catch a bunch of San Francisco folks and we were actually lucky to make it inside the restaurant before it really started to pour. Good thing my camera bag is waterproof-ish I think...
Found at Woodhouse Fish Co in San Francisco, California.
