The solid fishing community, history, and the many area marina’s is the perfect fit for the new Point Loma Fish Shop. From the rustic wood wrapping the walls, to the bright blue and white colors, the ambiance speaks of the sea, harbor, and local setting. Offering counter service, diners can opt for a quick quality bite or can stay for a long meal. The restaurant is also a pooch-friendly establishment, offering ample space to dine with your four-legged friends.
The menu offers so much variety that they don’t have to change it much. Chef creations are featured throughout the week, and the menu changes about once a year, with new items being added, usually from customer suggestions, or from popular customer favorites.
The coveted Fish Shop Shrimp features pan sautéed shrimp in Fish Shop seasoning. The seasoning is a Cajun dry rub that is sweet and spicy. The brown sugar in the seasoning caramelizes onto the shrimp, and the shrimp is served with a chipotle aioli, which makes for a perfect pairing.
The Fish Shop sources from many local distributors such as San Diego Seafood and Pacific Shellfish, which carry only sustainably caught seafood. The Poke bowl consists of original poke added to a bed of jasmine rice and seaweed salad, and topped with the perfect combo of sriracha aioli, and an avocado lime drizzle.
Another unique menu item is the Seafood Lumpia. A Filipino inspired dish that is full of flavor and texture, it’s served with a sweet chili dipping sauce that complement the flavors perfectly. The story behind this delicious creation goes all the way back to the very first Fish Shop that opened. The chef that helped develop the menu had a grandmother that made a traditional beef lumpia. He took his grandmother’s recipe and substituted mixed seafood for the beef, and it was a hit!
Point Loma Fish Shop is located at 1110 Rosecrans St #100, San Diego, CA 92106, (619) 756-7778.
