Good Taste

Posted: May 24, 2007

Life is all about balance.

You order a crabcake salad from Manny's Place, a small chain of casual seafood-centric eat-ins/takeouts. You savor the crabcake, crunching through its sauteed crust and delving into the sweet crabmeat bound together with nothing more than a roux of butter and spices. You feel a bit naughty - even if you order the broiled version. Then you eat the green salad it is served on - skipping the dressing - and you feel virtuous.
