Snackshot: Bad-Ass Po-Boy

This week's enormous Snackshot comes to us courtesy of Groovehouse and Beaver's Ice House.

From the photographer's description:

"Shrimp & Oyster Po-Boy with house made chips."

From the online menu: Bad-Ass Po-Boy Sandwich 'Overflowing with cornmeal-fried oysters & Gulf shrimp, slaw, crispy onions & spicy tartar sauce.'"

We recommend tackling Beaver's immense shrimp and oyster po-boy with a friend, preferably with a side of killer slaw or the famous macaroni and cheese. You'll notice that the po-boy's French bread has a distinctly buttery feel and flavor to it, which comes from dropping the bread briefly into the fryer before creating the sandwich.

Remember to submit your own photos (of food or anything else) to the Houston Press Flickr Pool. We'll choose our favorite food photo each Monday to be featured here on Eating Our Words.
