Pacific Catch

by janet on September 22nd, 2007

I went here, to Pacific Catch, and was fully prepared to write a normal (if a bit rave-ey) post about it, when James asked, “Is this the iPhone restaurant?”

As in the iPhone commercial:

WOW! I didn’t even know! I don’t think Jacques, who took me there (in the middle of our sixteen-mile bike ride), knew either. IF I had known, I would have taken an iPhone photo of it just to make all the jealous people who don’t have iPhones roll their eyes.

The irony about this commercial is that Pacific Catch didn’t even serve calamari. But after the ad they got inundated and ended up adding the dish to their menu.

I did not have calamari. I had an Ahi poke wasabi bowl, topped with wakame salad, sliced avocado, daikon sprouts, cucumber, pickled ginger, sesame seeds, shredded nori, and soy-wasabi sauce served over a heaping bowl of seasoned sushi rice.

After my first taste of the quivering, jewel-like tuna with the INSANE wasabi sauce, I put down my chopsticks and cried a little. I cried because I wished this restaurant were in LA so I could eat here every day, but it wasn’t. What was in this fucking sauce anyway? Drugs? Jesus. ((If drugs weren’t in the wasabi sauce, they were certainly in the dipping sauce for the sweet potato fries. Get them.))
