Eat This: Woodhouse Fish Co.'s Buttery Crab Roll

Steamed Dungeness crab requires nothing more besides a little (or a lot) of melted butter and a squeeze of lemon. But when sandwiched between a buttered split-top sourdough roll, well, sometimes you need to make exceptions in life.

Woodhouse Fish Co. gets the bread for its crab rolls specially made and shipped to it each day. The outsides of the roll are coated in butter and then heated to a crisp on a griddle. The bread's center contrasts nicely, slightly soft from soaking up the butter-soaked crab meat. Though a sourdough, it's not overpoweringly so, allowing the sweetness of the delicate crab meat to come through.

The dish is served with a side of long thin-cut fries -- salty and crispy enough -- and a small bowl of coleslaw that is nothing worth writing about, but can and should be eaten as a last bite to end your meal on a lighter note.

The crab roll is available at both Market and Filmore locations and is priced at $18 for a small (pictured above) and $26 for a large. It's not by any means a cheap sandwich, but you know what they say: treat yo'self.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
