Slapfish – Chowder My Fries

by Franklin on August 10, 2017

In a fast casual setting, Slapfish is all about being fresh and fast. They are all about fine dining with the price of something along the lines of Rubio’s (think California Fish Grill). The environment was clean and reminded me of a beachside local spot. We didn’t necessarily get there really early, but the restaurant was empty. Is this usually a good indication of bad food?

The lobster toast was on the house — after check-in. The itty-bitty toast had lots of flavor. The lobster flavor was masked by the spices and may mixture, but still had a blast of flavor. It was a good teaser to our seafood filled lunch.

The chowder fries were a hit. The fries were nice and thick, though I would have liked them more crispy. The clam chowder and bacon was just an intense richness that I enjoyed with the fries. Sprinkling on some Old Bay, though salty was a nice seafood factor that I enjoyed. The creamy chowder and fries were nice, and the crispy bacon just put everything on a porky note. You can’t go wrong if you put bacon on top of it all.

I am not a fan of grilled fish tacos, but this really changed my palate. The grilled fish in it of itself was so pure. It was grilled perfectly and would have eaten it all on its own. Placed in a taco, with cabbage, micro greens and sauce was just perfect. The thing was basically a fresh fish salad with some dope ingredients inside a fresh tortilla. I prefer the fried fish tacos, but this really changed my thoughts on fish tacos.
