If you never go to Crustacean San Francisco, it’s mean never go to SF. Because this restaurant have amazing crab noodle. One Crab not enough, at least you need to portion. But you need, to book by call before you go there.

Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
