Beer batter fish in soft corn tortillas with cilantro, cabbage, red onions, roasted tomato and lime salsa. Nick’s way made with a grilled crispy corn tortilla wrapped in a soft tortilla with Monterey jack cheese, pinto beans, pico de gallo and guacamole. $5.50 The Taco Shop at Underdogs, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this really is a great taco! The fish is delicious and perfectly fried, not greasy at all, and really flavorful. And if you order the taco “Nick’s way”, you get at lot more flavors and textures to an already killer taco. Noms!

Lemongrass, galangal, lime leaf, cherry tomatoes, chanterelle mushrooms, served with rice. $10.95 Little Uncle, Seattle WA
This soup was very similar to the flavors of a traditional tom yum, but I really wanted it to be more spicy as advertised in its description. I think it was more sour than anything, and I like sour but some heat would have been much appreciate. I loved the large chunks of black cod in the soup and the chanterelle mushrooms were a nice change up for Thai food. Overall it was tasty.
Chopped various seafood and cucumber dressed with spicy soy sauce. Happy hour $4.95 Rikki Rikki, Kirkland WA
This place has a great happy hour with plenty of discounted food and drinks! That’s probably why one of sisters frequents this place, hehe. The poke was pretty tasty. It was more of a salad with some chopped fish on top, but I didn’t mind because it cost less than five bucks. The fish tasted fresh and the soy dressing was good.
Cape cod cocktail (vodka and cranberry). Happy hour $2.95
Clams, mussels, calamari, prawns and fresh fish sautéed in a tomato garlic broth. $23 Cafe Renzo, Palo Alto CA
Meh, this was ok. Definitely not the best ciopinno I’ve had. The sauce was a bit salty and some of the seafood were overcooked, but the flavors were there. I wasn’t feeling the love from this seafood stew though.
Lieu noir roti, croustillant de risotto. Pollock, crispy fried risotto, root puree, foam, sprout. Entree/Plat option 24€
L’Epigramme, Paris FR
Mmm, another beautiful and delicious dish from L’Epigramme! It was a simple preparation but the fish was cooked perfectly and the accompaniments tasted amazing. The crispy polenta was warm and comforting, and the sauce worked well with the sablefish. Noms!
Ecole Militarie (Paris Military School), Champs de Mars. This huge school sits on the opposite side of the Champs de Mars from the Eiffel Tower. It’s not very pretty since it’s just a huge dirt field as you approach.
In Hunan chili sauce and Sichuan spicy oil. $11.95
Mama Ji’s, San Francisco CA
I can appreciate how Mama Ji’s is NOT afraid of keeping their dishes spicy. I do, however, have a hard time eating an entire bowl of chili oil! Sheesh, that is A LOT of oil for one dish! The fish, if you drained it a little from the oil, was tender and well-cooked though.
With chipotle salsa and pickled onions, guacamole and pico de gallo, lime. $22 Norma’s, Palm Springs CA
Another lame, basic dish for twenty two bucks! I guess if you add a grilled lime and stick long tortilla chips into the guacamole you can charge that amount. Someone should tell them that it would help if the food actually tasted good.
Local shellfish (mussels, shrimp, fish), coconut milk, soffrito and croutons. $22.50 Bossa Nova, San Francisco CA
This is my favorite dish at Bossa Nova and I order it every time. Unfortunately, this time around they served it without any bread and it took a while to get the waitress’ attention afterward. That was a bit careless, but this seafood stew is so warm and comforting that it quickly eases any frustration. Mmm!
