Soft Shells at Breadline

  • 6

As of today (maybe sooner?).

Also, the website is still erroneously listing the Thursday sandwich as an oyster po' boy (which is now off the menu).

GREAT sandwich.

  1. ^^You've had the SS crab sandwich? Is it a thursday special now?

      1. re: hill food

        I think it was north of $11 (maybe ever 14.95) when I had a few weeks ago.
        It was quite a surprise when I hit the register.

          Eeep - really? $14.95 is really steep. Was it worth it at least?

            Don't quote me on the price, but it wasn't cheap.

            As for the sandwich...

            Breadline tends to put the fried goods (oysters/soft shell crab) on the softer and sweeter breads. I prefer something a little more hearty so I can get the contrast between the soft seafood and a crust bread. I think that's the result of eating a lot of po boys from New Orleans transplants in Houston.

            It was good, but I'm not rushing back to eat it specifically again (and breadline is in my top 3 places for a quick lunch)

      2. So tomorrow's the big day! Who is going?
