For this Mmmmmonday, Sam and I discovered a real catch!!
Located in Templeton, CA, Pier 46 was a true find. Tucked out of the way in a Trader Joe’s shopping center, we were literally shocked when we walked in a found a lush seafood market and a gorgeous menu.
Who could resist a menu like this?!
Hmmmm, I wonder if you can guess what we ordered. Well, sweet potato fries with truffle salt were a MUST and Sam couldn’t resist pairing them with some crispy fish. It came to the table perfect…hot, light and crispy (not greasy). And the sweet potato fries….ummmmm it’s a good thing that Sam is a sharer or I would have had to create an excuse to get her away from the table! They were the perfect sweet and salty, crisp and thin.
And for me, well I am a true Los Angelean, despite having been on the Central Coast for almost five years now. What does that mean? Well, when I see sushi grade ahi on the menu, I jump at it. A gorgeous poki taco with asian slaw, SERIOUSLY?!
I’m still salivating! (Whoops, those are Zester hands! I had just been using black paint for a burlap sign…teehee) Oh, and the side salads! My favorite seaweed salad and a truly divine seafood salad that was loaded with octopus. Gosh, I couldn’t believe that I wasn’t on an actual pier…who woulda thunk you could get this delicious of a seafood selection inland. Yum! We were two VERY happy Zesters.
Hope you guys get a chance to try this little gem out, too. We will be making it a usual haunt for us, I know, and we would love to see you there!
