Floating island – Alamo Square Seafood Grill

Floating island - Alamo Square Seafood Grill
Meringue, creme anglaise (vanilla custard), toasted almonds, caramel sauce, strawberry and mint garnish. Daily 3-course prix fixe $14.50
Alamo Square Seafood Grill, San Francisco CA

This was a very simple, light and elegant dish and it tasted really good! I don’t think I’ve ever had this before but I can see that it’s a great cost effective way to put out a delicious dessert. You really need the toasted almonds and caramel sauce to elevate it though. Noms!

Blackened trout – Alamo Square Seafood Grill

Blackened trout - Alamo Square Seafood Grill
With green peppercorn sauce (red wine reduction and green peppercorns), roasted brussels sprouts, vegetables, and rice. Daily 3-course prix fixe $14.50
Alamo Square Seafood Grill, San Francisco CA

I enjoyed the trout. It was a small, thin piece with not a lot of meat but it tasted good and was prepared well. I wasn’t a fan of the green peppercorn sauce though. The color was off-putting and I didn’t think that the sour taste did anything to elevate the trout.

Baby field green and fine herb salad – Alamo Square Seafood Grill

Baby field green and fine herb salad - Alamo Square Seafood Grill
With sliced radishes and croutons. Daily 3-course prix fixe $14.50
Alamo Square Seafood Grill, San Francisco CA

This salad doesn’t look very interesting, but it was actually pretty good. It was lightly(!) tossed in a basic vinaigrette which I kinda liked. Overly dressed salads are the worst! And for a very affordable pre fixe, this salad was better than expected.

Hunters Point
Open Studios at Hunters Point. I love this event because you get to see artwork from a lot of local artists, and you can usually find some good deals. I can’t afford super expensive art so this is a great alternative.

Roasted cauliflower soup – Alamo Square Seafood Grill

Roasted cauliflower soup - Alamo Square Seafood Grill
With croutons and freshly ground black pepper. Daily 3-course prix fixe $14.50
Alamo Square Seafood Grill, San Francisco CA

This restaurant has a great daily prix fixe for under fifteen bucks! The service was a little unfocused, but the food was great especially for the price. This cauliflower soup was tasty and had lots of flavor. It had a fairly light texture which was probably healthier, but with the current cold weather a thicker, creamier based would have been amazing. Ugh, this is why I will never be super skinny! LOL
