Dinner take out from Stanford Bar and Grill, Northgate

We only found out that they had a groupon deal after eating at this place, so didn’t make a reservation before going. They were fully booked! On a weekday night! We had to sit at the bar, and then we were ejected from the restaurant because I didn’t have ID that they’d accept. -.- Anyway I didn’t want to eat there THAT much to bring an ID. We ended up getting take out cause we didn’t want to be too late for our movie at the Crest.

L ordered the Baja shrimp tacos, which were quite nice, lots of guac, but way too little shrimp. They also double wrap their tacos (seems to be a trend here?) which we don’t quite get, so we un-double wrapped it and kept the tortilla skins for a second round of tacos for dinner the next night, when I fried up some ground beef with taco seasoning. I probably wouldn’t order this again, in favor of something less carby and with more meat/skill needed for preparation.

I got the crab cakes with remoulade (It’s a starter), which were really awesome! Definitely would get this again. I actually liked that they put corn in this – obviously it’s not meant to be the fine-dining sorta crabcake that you get at Six Seven, but the lovely deep fried, creamy, crabby type with chunks of celery, onion, and corn, and none the worse for it.
