      My pleasure.
      Wow it was great!
      Hurry on in.
      A feast of seafood flavor and great textures - soft yummy uni against crunchy abalone and popping salmon eggs. Woo-hoo!

      1. re: Ciao Bob

        what was the price on that special ?

    2. Had a slight variation of this a couple of weeks ago (with shrimp instead of ikura) - loved it!

        My mouth is singing a seafood song and my tongue dancing a Uni-Abalone jig!

          Argh!!! Won't be able to make it there tonight. Love abalone....

          But I did have 800 deg for lunch today. =)

      2. Damn, I was there today and forgot to ask about specials! That sounds amazing. But definitely no complaints, my fish taco and coctele mixto were fantastic

        1. How did I miss this post 4 hours ago?!? I was busy writing my Tacolandia review/recap! Ironic? D'oh!

          Had the same variation that chrishei had a few weeks ago. Delicious!

          1. Just had today's special tostada - Uni, scallop, shrimp with picked vegetables and a pineapple habanero salsa. Delicious.

              It was not yet ready when I was in for lunch today.

                Last week, I had their special tostada - shrimp, scallops, avocado with lobster consommé "noodles", uni, habanero salsa. Fantastic,

                  How much did that special costed ?

                  1. re: kevin

                    Don't remember, but it was well worth it. I think we had 2 tacos, the tostada special, chips & salsa, drink and it was under $20

                2. re: carln

                  How much did that special cost?

                3. Funny, I went to have lunch there today - but couldn't find a parking spot.

                      To say the least. I work next door so I do not to have to manage that. I wonder if you call and ask them where to park, what they say. Anyone try that? I believe on a previous post chrishei divulges and imparts his parking pearl....

                      1. re: Ciao Bob

                        You can park on Chelsea one block east of TPC, north of SM Blvd, during the summer. It's normally restricted on "School Days" but no school during summer!

                        1. re: PeterCC

                          Has anyone tried parking in those few spots in the alley sirectly adjacent to the school? They're across the alley from the back of TPC. They were obviously unused on Saturday and probably ditto during the summer?

                    2. re: foodiemahoodie

                      No specials today but the scallop tostada with pineapple salsa and the shrimp coctele made for a fine consolation prize. There are a few parking spaces on 23rd South of Santa Monica just before the signs start with permit only so, if you time it right, that can be a good place to park.
