Fried Seafood in San Francisco???

I am a big lover of seafood and will be going to San
Francisco for my first time. Does anyone know of a
place where there is the basic fried seafood...the type
of place where they don't mix it in with vegetables and
sauces? I like combinations of fried seafood all
types...maybe a combination plate? Or even better, a
buffet? Thanks for your comments. I also plan on
having some good Chinese foods while there too.
You might want to try Tadich Grill on California
Street between Battery and Front in the Financial
District. They offer up your pick of fillet either
fried, grilled, or baked with potatoes and veggies of
your choice on the side. I think Tadich is the oldest
restaurant in SF. If you do get in the mood for
fancy, expensive fish with all kinds of sauces you can
hit Aqua next door.
Of course you should explore Chinatown for some of your
Chinese meals, but if you want a terrific Chinese
restaurant at reasonable prices go to Ton Kiang on
Geary Street at 22nd Avenue. It has the best dim sum
and wanton soup I've had in the city.
Thanks for the help. Especially mentioning the couple
of places to go. I thought that there might be a place
where fried seafood is common like it is on the Gulf
Coast. There, most of the food is fried and not mixed
in with other things. Do you think that Neptunes Palace
may be more of a place like that since it is on the
wharf where there are more touists that may not be
accustomed to the Asian influence that seems to be
common in the cooking there?
