Blue swimmer crab sandwich at Royal Hotel.
The special entrée of the day, this was more mini-burger than sandwich and came at $6 a pop (minimum order of 2). It was heavily mayonnaise-ed crab meat on cos lettuce, punctuated with something that was like alfalfa, all sandwiched in a little mini-burger shaped dinner-roll.
It was tasty if not impressive. Would be better if served on brioche, as this bread was rather coarse and tasteless. Probably a mild disappointment for a whooping $6 since for $2 extra you could chow-down on something more substantial and yummy… like a Huxtaburger.
Warm attentive service was a redeeming quality. I suppose not too bad a feed for a gastro-pub in an unassuming neighbourhood.
