Lowell's: greasy crab sandwich

Pike Place Market is a public market overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle. Everyone will recommend you to go there.

Being very touristic, the risk of wondering around and hit on the wrong place is extremely high. To avoid this risk, every time I visit a new place, I try to collect information talking to other food bloggers or reading specialized articles.

It was not the case this time.

Lowell's opened its doors in 1957 and it is an institution of Pike Place. The entrance proudly shows awards and articles (dating few years back).

You can either place immediately the order and sit at the first and third floor, or choose to get the full restaurant experience on the second floor.

I ordered a classic, the crab melt sandwich: two slices of toasted bred, holding crab, onions, tomato sauce, mozzarella and small cubes of bacon. I got fat just listing the ingredients!

The crab is fresh but the sandwich is incredibly greasy and overwhelming... I would not go a second time.
