Thursday nights are traditionally when the locals in Fortaleza go out to eat crab on the beach of Praia do Futuro. Tonight I went with Daniela and her daughter Lara to a nice restaurant which had an appropriate crab theme. Our first dish was shredded, fried crab meat served in a shell. Next, we had a plate of breaded crab claws. Both dishes were delicious. For our third and final plate, we had our work cut out for us. After the waiter made a visit to our table, three whole boiled crabs were staring our way. The food was good, but hardly worth the effort as it took a good fifteen minutes to pick apart each crab. My first Fortaleza crab night turned out to be a success, despite practically having burned more calories than I consumed.
