Fish Grill...and a great steak!

Shooting some places around the Beverly/Fairfax area today, and looking for something different in the way of lunch. Just east of the corner of Alta Vista and Beverly I spotted a sign that said "Fish Grill", and since that's two of my favorite things right there (AND a parking space right in front!) I figured it was Meant To Be. Unassuming little joint, menu and ambience obviously Kosher, so I ordered the mesquite-grilled fish tacos. As I asked for no spuds or rice I was offered either a double order of Israeli salad or one salad and one coleslaw, and chose the latter, plus an iced green tea.

The salads were nice - coleslaw odd, with caraway seeds, but I liked it. Israeli salad is chopped cuke, tomato and sweet peppers in a tart dressing, very tasty. The tacos were stuffed and good enough, but bore out my suspicion that fish for tacos really needs to be fried. More than enough food for right at $10 - I'll drop by again and eat down the menu a bit (wish to heck they had cod!!). They also have a covered outdoor patio, all quite clean and tidy.

On another note, I had just about the best steak of my life last night: a "Prime Spencer" from How's Market, which my pa-in-law cooked by his usual method of heating his iron skillet to eight billion degrees and dropping in the meat. That's it. Didn't ask the price (and neglected to read the labels), but his only prepping was to let'em sit on plates for an hour before cooking, and they were killer. I'm becoming a How's believer...
