On a recent visit to San Diego we spent the day exploring the Embarcadero area. First we went to the Farmer’s Market in Little Italy. What an amazing variety of vendors selling everything from fresh produce to crepes to organic clothing! Who knew?
Venturing south towards the USS Midway we got hungry and had a hankering for fish and chips. Being from the Midwest it’s hard to find good fish and chips! In clear view of the USS Midway is The Fish Market, seafood market and restaurant. We decided to check it out and we weren’t disappointed.
I just wanted the basic fish and chips. On the menu is was described as “Panko Style” w/french fries and coleslaw with your choice of fish. I chose the Alaskan Cod for 15.95
I liked it enough that I would order it again. The trick is to have it when it is piping hot to get that crispy crunch of Panko on the fish.
My husband did not know what to get so he just dove into the seafood platter so he could try everything! The menu described the dish as a Smoke Fish Sampler for 18.75 that included trout, salmon, nova lox, albacore.
He thought it was ok. I’m not convinced that he liked to nova lox all that much. Included in with the lunch entrees was a basket of fresh baked bread. You could never have enough!
There is also a small market where you can purchse from a wide selection of the freshest fish, shellfish, smoked fish and menu items for take out. All in all the experience was good . . . to try new things. The view of the harbor was priceless. So if you are ever in San Diego try The Fish Market
