I’ve ran past Sea Salt Fish Grill on 7th Street so many times and I always say I need to go in there and try that place. Finally I did. Sea Salt Fish Grill prides itself on serving “high quality seafood at affordable prices in a convenient, quick-serve setting.”
I got the California Po’Boy Sandwich ($10.99) and a bowl of the Fisherman’s Wharf Clam Chowder ($6.99). Let’s start with the sandwich. It’s panko breaded tiger shrimp with avocado, bibb lettuce, tomatoes
and the house spread on a hoagie roll. It came with a side of the slaw and chips. It was fine, but the clam chowder… that’s another story. Okay, I love clam chowder. If it’s on the menu, I will order it. I have eaten calm chowder at dozens and dozens of restaurants. This clam chowder was boring, too many potatoes and not enough clams. I was disappointed, but again, I am a clam chowder lover and I’m hard to please.
The food was good, the service was quick and friendly, I just didn’t love it. There are too many restaurants in DTLA that I need to try before I go to Sea Salt Fish Grill again. I’m sorry. I’m not trying to be mean. I’m trying to be honest.
