Oh joy! Finally got back to St Augustine for the Lights of Nights. It’s cold!
Last night went to O’Steens, and the man didn’t quite believe that it was as good as I said. But after a bowl of their unbeatable Minorcan clam chowder (awesome on a crisp night) and an order of their fried shrimp he’s a believer. The breading is elusive…
I’ve gotten close but have not quite managed to replicate it. It’s pale, but a light flavor and just the right crisp to complement the sweet fresh shrimp.
Forewarning…there’s no alcohol, no reservations, no credit cards, and no ambience, just great food and friendly service.
I know @meatn3 knows how much I was looking forward to it!
