You go to Thanh Long in the Outer Sunset for Dungeness crab - gigantic, whole-roasted Dungeness crab. They’re thoroughly covered in salt and pepper, which makes breaking into the shells just as good as eating the actual meat. And while the crab alone is enough of a reason to come here, the garlic noodles pair about as perfectly with it as Tom Cruise does with sprinting on camera.
