Food: Shrimp in the Wild

While running errands today, I stopped for lunch at the Wild Shrimp Company, a small walk-up stand on the corner of Central Avenue and 20th Street at the edge of Haslam's Book Store parking lot. It would be easy to miss, and even if noted, you may not be tempted to stop. If you drive on by, you are missing one of the "Best of the Bay" restaurants, using that term loosely. Walk up to the window, place your order, and enjoy the food at one of the two umbrella topped plastic tables fronting Central Ave. 

I had the po' boy loaded with lighted breaded, deep fried, sweet wild gulf shrimp. It was served on a fresh hoggie roll with lettuce, tomato, and a tangy grainy mustard and mayo sauce. Yummy, I say.

Liz, I am working on it. You haven't seen me is a few years; only memories remain of my old running weight. You and Henry need to come down, we can visit all the old haunts.
