Hello, my Friends! I am stoked to announce SLAPFISH has arrived in the Bay Area, and better yet, in San Jose! I was invited by another food blogger (@fooodiemon) & SLAPFISH to promote their Grand Opening.
As a pescatarian, I take my seafood very seriously. And I am pleased to say I give SLAPFISH a big ol’ slap of approval for their sustainable, fresh, and incredibly yummy dishes. The menu has a plethora of options from the light and healthy to indulgent comfort foods you can trust. I dare say this is the new “it” spot for fast casual nomz in town. So let’s get to it, shall we?!
Enter 5297 Prospect Road into your GPS and I’ll see ya there…
Upon entering, I love the nautical vibe! Let’s order at the counter, and we can’t forget to order one of their teas- I am going for the unbelievably tasty Berry Patch Haymaker.
Time to get to the foood!
First up, The ULTIMATE Fish Taco. It lives up to it’s name. This comes either grilled or crispy with cabbage, “awesome sauce” (I concur… it is awesome), and pickled onion. The cohesive mix of flavors packed in each bite of this is mouth-wateringly delicious. I personally would order it grilled, but if you like that “fried fish” flavor, then go for crispy!
Next up! The Power Bowl. If you are craving something extremely healthy, yet delicious, this is your dish! It has mixed-grill seafood, brown rice, crisp veggies, avocado, and extra virgin olive oil. The shrimp in it is so juicy- the word that keeps flashing in my mind with each bite is *FRESH*FRESH*FRESH*.
If you are wanting something with a satiating mixture of flavors and textures- go for the Poke Bowl! They promise to serve only the freshest tuna, seasoned rice, and chips with greens.
And if you are looking for something more simple, yet still filling & scrumptious go for the Grilled Fish Bowl. This has your choice of daily (yes, DAILY) fish, seasoned rice, herb sauce, and hand picked salad.
Now, time for the Clobster Grilled Cheese!! This is a dish I am adding to my “Must Try” list for the San Jose area. This contains a melting mix of lobster, crab and a creamy herb sauce. Excuse me for a moment while I enjoy every. single. bite.
Now, for the grand finale! For years I have said Sam’s Chowder House has the best Lobster Roll around, but this may have changed after trying The Lobster Roll at SLAPFISH. I was astonished at the generous portions of the lobster meat, the way they overpack the sandwich, the bursting flavor and the value. An issue I have with many lobster rolls is how often the butter masks the flavor of the lobster rather than enhance it- with this one it is only lightly drawn with butter, so the lobster flavor comes through in all its glory!
Don’t forget the fries! Their fries and the house sauces are top-notch!
People have asked for my favorite dish… and it’s insanely hard to choose. I think I would go with the lobster roll because it’s just so well done & flavorful. But the Clobster stole my heart with the mixture of cheese AND seafood. For a daily go-to dish I think I’d choose either the Poke Bowl or Power Bowl! The good news is, you cannot go wrong with whatever you choose! Thank you, SLAPFISH, for the wonderful food and welcome to The Bay!
