Who says you can’t play with your food? One restaurant in San Antonio is allowing you to do just that. For great food AND a fun and memorable experience hit up the Smashin’ Crab. It’s one of my favorite spots to visit with convenient locations in Leon Valley and Stone Oak.
Whether your dad is a seafood connoisseur or a red meat man, Smashin’ Crab has it all. Create your own boil by first picking your seafood of choice from options like shrimp, crab, and lobster. (Pro tip: blue crab is in season so get it while you can!) Next, choose from a selection of specialty sauces like citrus pepper or garlic. Finally, comes my favorite part where you get to choose the level of heat you prefer from a range of 1-5. I like to stick around 3 because I enjoy a little bit of a bite. Add on some corn and potatoes and you’ve got your own personal boil that will be dumped out on your table right in front of you! Smashin’ Crab is also known for their classic cajun po’boys. I’m a fan of the Crawfish Po’boy dressed and served on a French bread roll with Cajun Fries on the side.
If your dad would rather enjoy something from land, the Stone Oak location offers Bar-B-Q as well! They smoke their meats to perfection and have an endless selection of sides like potato salad and cornbread to pair with draft and bottled beer, wine, and signature cocktails will have your pops feeling good.
Don’t forget the wines! I found all of my wines at H-E-B who is encouraging a wine haul this week with their Cabs for Dad sale! Take an additional 10% off H-E-B’s entire selection of cabernets from Wednesday, June 13 through Sunday, June 17.
