Captain Tom's

Last night's dinner at Captain Tom's Seafood n Oyster was a feel gud one.. with the look n feel of a snub nosed shrimp boat both from outside n inside, the place is packed n in demand!! Sadly we cudn't grab seats by the bow which faces the road..
There is a horseshoe shaped center area used for taking orders n is stacked with all the raw stuff n beer bottles..The service is very prompt n the food pretty cheap too. A dozen oysters run to about four dollars..
You can spice up ur oysters with cocktail sauce,horse radish or lemon juice..with a horde of sauces, each one turning ur face to bum red n numb, choosing the right combination needs talent or the easiest way is just follow wat ur neighbour is doing!!
After the most sought after oysters, there r the shrimps, both fried n stuffed and also catfish..But the dish i liked most is gumbo a typical Louisiana (Cajun) food..consisting of shrimp n okra (lady's finger) it was one of the most delicious soups i have ever had..
Also after finishing a meal u head straight to the cashier n pay for watever u think u had.. so much still, for faith from one human to another :)
I am sorry i didn't take a picture of this wonderful restaurant but my husband bein a gourmet has really liked the place a lot.. so have i.. so we do hope to go back there, when i will surely click a few pics for u :)
