In my family the birthday boy or girl gets to pick where they want to have dinner. Since it was my brother Michael’s birthday today he chose Berth 55 in Long Beach for lunch.
You order at the counter and wait for your number to be called.
My mom and I ordered the Clam Chowder to share. I think this is the BEST clam chowder I’ve ever had – and I’ve tried several, including many in San Fran.
We got the large and it was HUGE. I really loved it and kept going back for more.
Michael highly recommended the fish & chips, so I went with his suggestion. The plan was to share with Ben and take some of his grilled swordfish. It turns out the fish & chips was a ton better than his dish! It was hard to give even a bit of this up.
Overall, everyone loved their food. The service was quick and the prices are good. We will definitely be coming back!
Here is Ben, Matt and myself after eating. We were very happy with the entire dining experience. Great food, great company, great location!
After eating we went back to my mom’s for cake and ice cream. I told Michael I would make him any kind of cake he wanted. He chose Funfetti.
I wanted a challenge like the time I made Ben lemon cake from scratch, but he wanted Funfetti. But, it’s his special day, so Funfetti it is!
Oh wait more specifically, he wanted Funfetti cake and Pistacio ice cream.
Ask and you shall receive.
This is my piece, I ended up serving myself both Cherry Garcia fro-yo and Pistacio. So.Good.
The center of the cake is Nutella. Because it makes everything better.
Now there’s talk of ordering Pizza for dinner. Ridic. I really need to Cut the Crap tomorrow!!
