Pacific Catch – San Francisco

Damn. I wish Pacific Catch would open a location in Los Angeles. This West Coast fish house serves fresh, healthy dishes using sustainable seafood at reasonable prices.  Their Chestnut Street location is extremely tiny, with a handful of tables and bar seating. On a cold night, we could feel the chill of the night air, every time a delivery service opened the door (they do bustling business with to go orders). Even though the location is small, the menu is fairly large – from poke and tacos to bowl and sandwiches, and much, much more.

When a free appetizer of shelled edamame appeared on the table, I think I fell in love right there. (Yes, I am a sucker for free food.)

No beer on tap, but they do have some local brews available in cans, along with wine and sake.

Non-seafood lovers can partake in chicken or tofu as their protein. My daughter ordered the kid’s chicken teriyaki, which was appropriately child-friendly.

My husband’s Grilled Salmon came on top of a bed of brown rice and quinoa, with roasted cauliflower, avocado, radish salad, greens, with a cilantro-pepita pesto and soy tahini drizzle. It was not only nutritious, but surprisingly tasty.

My two taco platter was a win. Served with choice of salad or fries, each taco had a generous piece of fish. Even though I chose a salad over fries (and was regretting my decision because the fries looked delicious), the salad was much better than I expected, with edamame, tomatoes and daikon sprouts in a light miso dressing.

I enjoyed both the Pacific Rockfish and the Grilled Salmon tacos and liked that they weren’t overly loaded with toppings so that you could still taste the fish.

Given how small this location is, it’s no surprise that they were churning out orders for takeaway. There may be many fish in the sea, but Pacific Catch is a catch, with high quality food at prices that won’t make you flinch.
