Right next to the Intercontinental The Clement Monterey was an outlet of the Bubba Gump Shrimp chain. They serve – you may have guessed it – shrimp. And some fish. And you can step into Forrest’s shoes.
For us Europeans shrimp is mostly grilled or fried in garlic oil. They had that too, but I guess the most popular item on the menu were breaded deep fried shrimp specialities. We tried some Popcorn Shrimp – basically small shrimps breaded and deep fried – and it also could have been chicken or anything else.
The Cajun Shrimp – shrimps in garlic oil – were alright. As a side we had mashed potatoes with Bourbon gravy, which was just great.
Margaritas came in huge 22 oz shakers and were ok, but a littlebit on the sweet side.
They had all kind of articifically colored drinks – alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
We came out to about $50 for 2 appetizers, 1 side and 2 margaritas. It was more than enough food and fat for us and just about enough alcohol… At other tables we saw people eating appetizer, main and dessert plus a milk shake just for themselves…
