San Pedro Fish Market

My wife, son and I went to San Pedro Fish Market for the first time Saturday evening. We chose to bypass the fresh fish side and go straight to the "Fast Food" part and ordered two orders of fish and chips ($7.95 ea.), a squid and chips ($7.95) and a shrimp cocktail ($9) and three soft drinks. (Altogether it was $38 and change.) None of it met our expectations. The shrimp cocktail was best, mixed with tomatoes and cilantro. The fish and chips seemed like tilapia and was picked from bins of pre-fried offerings behind the cashier. The french fries were greasy and soggy and the cole slaw was decent. I was also surprised by tartar sauce coming in small packets rather than making their own. The environment was sorta fun if you're in the mood for it -- it was packed with people and music of various types was being played loudly.

Having read good things about this place from Jonathan Gold and seeing it on some Food Network show, the food was a big letdown.
