Shaka- Pier Village
just ran by this place the other day and saw their grand opening is today. was wondering if anyone has tried it yet. looks like a burrito taco kinda place like fins or surftaco.
My son & I read the Twitter feed on Shaka last night and a wee bit curious hit their Pier Village location for lunch today. We walled into a Tiki hut, Polynesian vibe, fun for a beach area and youth friendly. Very helpful and eager wait staff on hand. Outside most of the rattan lined seating was taken although I noted only a few people eating food. The inside of the restaurant was nearly empty. The owner, complete with laptop, sat in the corner typing away. Maybe he's working on the website!
For lunch we gave the fish taco and build-your-own-burrito a go. The fish taco was served with a very small piece of salmon, avocado, cabbage, mango and some fresh lime. Three bites, history. My son selected a chicken/rice/greens burrito which was lacking heat or a generous hand with the ingredients. Shaka offers bottled drinks so, we shared a peach tea. Overall, we were underwhelmed by skimpy servings and bland prep. $12/+change for the order and we left mighty hungry.
I beach at 7 presidents and frequent the Running Store (Shore Runner, which is great) in PV ....I think we've tried every place there and have been dissapointed, especially in TP.
I'm convinced the people who dine in PV, a majority anyway, have never cooked an egg, therefore anything is "great" for them.
They certainly have the new hip "location"
Couldn't pull what those restaurants do at other locations that's for sure.
I'll head to Windmill, Maxx's or hit Bobbys Burger Place on the way home for a quick bite.
Happy to report that Pier Village was MOBBED today - good for the economy.
