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!
