Cal Fish Irvine for Lunch Today
Had sword and halibut with fries and cole slaw. Fish tasted fairly fresh but was cut thin ( ~0.5") and IOHO pretty much overcooked. In contrast, we generally grill thick ~2 - 3" slices at home on the barbie and err toward less done. Fries and slaw were so-so, edible but nothing special.
Now considering servings were ample and given the price of fresh fish in the market these days, arguably good value~$10 a plate. Serves a purpose for those in need of a quick and basic (little to no flair or inspiration) fish fix at a reasonable price. But anyone expecting more will be sorely disappointed.
If the chow at Cal Fish becomes too boring, throw healthfulness to the wind. Head south a few long blocks to Wholesome Foods at Michaelson & Culver and feast on a decadent array of Med, Persian and Indian goodies, you naughty hound, you.
