El Pescador Fish Market is a market and restaurant offering fresh seafood. We recently stopped by their La Jolla location after hearing a lot of positive reviews on their sandwiches.
For most of the fresh seafood options, you have a choice of having it served as a sandwich, salad or plate.
We started with a small cup of clam chowder. There were a good amount of clams in the chowder, but I felt the chowder itself was a little under-seasoned and lacked a briny sea flavor.
This fish stew had much bolder flavors and was filled with a mix of fish chunks and vegetables.
Yellowtail Fish Sandwich
You could taste the freshness of the fish fillet. Served simply on a torta roll with lettuce, onions and tomatoes, this preparation allowed the fish to really shine through.
Grilled octopus, served with brown rice, avocado slices, and mixed vegetables. This was a filling plate and we enjoyed the generous amount of octopus served.
Overall, we had a pleasant meal here. It reminded me of the restaurants around Pier 39 in San Francisco and it’s a good option if you’re craving fresh seafood in San Diego.
