Tuesday Talk

John and I checked out the new fish and chips place in Eureka today at lunch. It was a pretty hoppin' place; in the section where we sat, everyone seemed to know each other.
A former mayor--now running for District Supervisor (or, um, something...honestly, I don't know)--and her husband were at the table next to ours. All I can tell you though is that they really liked the clam chowder. Both varieties.

John and I shared the crab cakes and the Fisherman's Platter. The crab cakes were very simple: lots of crab, not much else. They were good, though I would have liked a little bit more crunch (same problem with the tartar sauce; I like mine with lots of pickly goodness). The scallops and the shrimp on the platter were excellent, but the advertised 2 pieces of cod together barely amounted to a single piece. There wasn't enough batter on anything to stand up to vinegar, but the cocktail sauce was tasty (from a jar?). The fries were pretty typical skin-on fries. Service was quick and friendly. We'll take the kids some time.

Yum! I love crab cakes AND scallops! I would imagine that on the coast the seafood is really good. I'm jealous.

Popped over here from "Princess and Johnsy"'s site. Looks good.
How old are your kids?

PS. I just figured out the idea behind Tuesday Talk. Great idea, and very funny. I liked some of the other ones I just read, too. I also liked the blueberry post. I LOVE picking blueberries, and i love EATING fresh blueberries!

I'm on reference from princess as well, and I like your blog! I'm not much of a fish person, but those little fish and chip shops are so homey, aren't they? It makes you want to hop a plane and head for London.
