Ritter’s Steam Kettle Cooking

Ritter’s Steam Kettle Cooking-Santa Ana, CA. If you like Cajun food you gotta try this restaurant. There is a fabled restaurant in downtown Las Vegas called The Oyster Bar that is famous for their House Pan Roast. I would go out of my way to eat this dish hungover before leaving Vegas if the stars aligned. Low and behold one of the Chefs started a restaurant called the Boiler in Chino Hills. Well he left that restaurant and is bringing it to Santa Ana with a new location opening in Huntington Beach as well called Ritters Steam Kettle Cooking. The Pan Roast is a must try and I have never had anything like it before. It is cooked in stationary steam kettles individually that can be seen behind the bar. It is best described as a tomato red cream based soup or stew which can include mussels, shrimp, crab, Lobster and sausage with a helping of rice inside. It’s is pure Cajun spice heaven. I have watched them prepare it and it has over 20 different spices it seems. Their maple bacon wrapped shrimp is also deliciouso! A must try and new addition to the OCFoodList. Love Peace and Bacon wrapped Shimp Grease!

  1. First had Mike’s Pan Roast in Vegas at the Palace Station. It was the BEST thing I ever had. I was so happy to find him in California at the Boiler a few years ago. Now the great news is that he has his new place in Santa Ana, Ritter’s Steam Kettle Cooking. Try everything on the menu, you can’t go wrong. Welcome back Mike, so glad to see you again!!
