Eat Me: Soft Shell Crab at Casa Rubia

DSC02651by Steven Doyle

A night in Trinity Groves always compels me to make at least a pit stop into Casa Rubia, the kicked up tapas restaurant cheffed by James Beard nominated Omar Flores. Last evening was no exception. I sauntered in for a cocktail, but actually walked away with a happy belly full of crab. In this case it was three smallish soft shells that were perched so beautifully on my plate ever so lovely.   

The dish is adorned with the trio of crabs, plus a beautiful spread of squid ink for an extra bit of flavor from the sea. Pair this dish with a glass of cava for a perfect repast.

The soft shells are a Casa Rubia special, and will most likely have a short life on the menu. Check it out before they check out.
