This poke bowl was pretty tasty! I like that you can choose any and all of their toppings and sauces which is nice since the bowl isn’t that cheap to begin with.

This dish was just so fresh, bright, clean, and delicious! I loved the way they made the watermelon and tuna similar in appearance. It was like a surprise to see if you got a piece of watermelon or tuna before you took a bite. Yum!

I love getting the trio (or quarto) at Fresca because you get to try a variety of their ceviches and the price is great. This time around, I really liked the mixto. It’s the most traditional one, but I really just liked the flavors. I was surprised by the ceviche passion with it’s passion fruit dressing. It tasted pretty good!

Plantain chips - Fresca
Plantain chips. $5
I think it’s kinda lame that you have to pay for plantain chips. They should just give you less and make it complimentary.
