Ports O'Call Restaurant

I took some friends down to the Ports O’Call Restaurant last night and they were totally blown away by how awesome it is to eat on an inlet such as the Port of Los Angeles. We actually caught a big container ship on its way out which made it even more exciting. It was kind of funny because it was dusk and we saw the ship making its way under the Vincent Thomas Bridge and my friend grabbed his camera in kind of a hurry so he didn’t miss the shot. I told him to relax because it would take at least another 10 minutes to even get to the location that we were sitting.

Anyway I have been coming to happy hour here for about 5 years and on fridays they bring out tacos, vegetables and cheese that is served buffet style and they totally let you do the all you can eat thing so that is fun.

On this night I ordered The Crab & Shrimp Louie Royal salad and it was very tasty. It had Garden Greens, Asparagus, Crab Stuffed Deviled Egg, Black Caviar, Cucumber, Avocado, Tomato, Croutons and they had a special Louie Dressing that they put on it. It was perfect! I have been trying to eat a bit healthier so this salad filled me up just right.
