We had lunch at Fish Gaucho yesterday on the way back from a quick dash up to Paso Robles. The restaurant only has one menu, which is used for either lunch or dinner. We started off with the salsa trio and chips. The trio consists of a rojo, avocado tomatillo, and a pico de gallo. All three were quite good with perhaps the avocado\tomatillo standing out. For mains, the Mrs opted for fish tacos. These are market price and the day’s selection with prices is listed on a board. She opted for the Mahi. She enjoyed it a lot and it probably was the stand out dish of the meal. A table next to ours saw her order and opted to go the same direction. They indicated it was quite good as well. I had the double cut pork chops al pastor. It was a thick, double cut chop as advertised, cooked to medium as requested. The chop was over seasoned. Not sure if it was the “al pastor”, or if the chef added too much salt. Which should have been needed. The chop was advertised as having a 48-hour brine. The meat without the costing did not taste over seasoned, so the brine was not the issue. It came with jalapeno mashers. I did not get much flavor from the mashers other than the potato itself. They were quite good though.

Prices matched the portions served. That said, portions were lager than I normally want for lunch. For dinner, the size and prices would be very reasonable. We’ll probably give them another shot at some point. I just will not order the chop. And perhaps try for the dinner hour.
