A little bit of tiki on 116th Street. It was nice to step into this brightly colored "shack" on a chilly fall evening, although warm days in the backyard are probably great too, especially considering the mess you are able to make with a steam pot here. Crab legs and shrimp come in a bag and basket with aromatic Old Bay and butter happiness. The shrimp were large and the crab legs were easy to break apart, even with the plastic gloves on. The corn was nice too-I may never think there is enough cotija on it, though. Service was friendly and they offer pick-up, but not delivery.
