I just love the tacos at Cala. They’re always so tasty and such great quality. Of these three, I especially liked the trout and potato adobo. It was a nice change from your typical taco fillings. I also love the salsas that they have. I could eat these all day!

With red cabbage and apple salad. Pre fixe menu
Radio Africa & Kitchen, San Francisco CA

Mmm, I love warm, cheesy, herby spreads. And this one also had smoked trout it in, score! This was really good and comforting food, and the red cabbage and apple salad was a great accompaniment to cut through the richness of the spread.

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.

Yield Wine Bar, San Francisco CA

This smoked trout rillette was really refreshing. It was bright and punchy and fun to eat. I would spread some of the rillette on the bread, embed some of the fried capers into it, and top it with an apple slice. Fun and tasty finger food!
