After a day of endless wine tasting, my palette needed some food! Luckily we found this seafood tapas place online and it had enough reviews that it peaked my interest. The ambiance was very casual and laidback, kinda of my mental image of Southern California.
we started off with the charred ahi tuna. this was an amazing dish with cucumber, truffle soy and avocado. the composition was very fresh and easy to bite.
we got the mussels next with three ingredients: PBR, Green garlic butter and Old Bay. There were a lot of mussels in this but the seasoning was amazing and so we didn’t mind eating a ton of mussels.
Next came the clam strips with a garlic aioli sauce. The garlic aioli was delicious! I wanted to slather it on bread but alas I only had the crispy fried clam strips for dipping.
Next came out the uni mac and cheese with scallops. The mac and cheese was extremely creamy and cheesy which was perfect for me. And there was a good amount of baby scallops in here as well which you couldn’t really taste but did break up the pasta composition nicely.
Then we had the main lobster roll. I was disappointed considering I could probably get twice this amount of lobster for almost half the price back home during the summers. But since we were in California we wanted to enjoy some good seafood and so we ordered this to finish off our seafood feast. The lobster boiled to a crisp quality (not too much) and not much else ( no mayo like other seafood rolls).
