Crab season is finally here after getting off to a rocky start!  We were supposed to have fresh crab beginning November 15th however as what appears to be the theme of 2011, the San Francisco fisherman were holding out for more money.  They eventually got it, but not before sacrificing crab for Thanksgiving.

I got my first taste of this years catch last night.  As anyone that knows me will tell you, I Love to Cook!  So I stopped by Sun Fat Seafood Co located in the Mission to buy a live one.  Sun Fat is the place to go when looking for fresh seafood. 

So what to eat with my succulent crab?  What else, garlic noodles of course!  The best garlic noodles I'd ever eaten were from Thanh Long Restaurant and its sister property Crustacean, owned by the An family.  Thanh is located in the Sunset district while Crustacean is located in Polk Gulch.  And if you've never been to either, GO! 

Their signature garlic noodles and roasted crab not only won over food critics, foodies, and aficionados alike, they also help launched a multi-million restaurant empire (counting 3 and growing!) for the An’s family who hailed from Vietnam. The legacy lies in the “Secret Kitchen“–a completely enclosed kitchen within the main kitchen, off limits to all employees, where the family members churn out the legendary garlic noodles and roasted crab, using secret recipes that were passed down for three generations

So being the cook that I am, I decided to replicate the legendary garlic noodles and thanks to the Internet I found a recipe that did just that. And now I can say the best darn garlic noodles I've had were from my "secret kitchen"!

Yes, I went to bed last night a very happy and full person!
