Seafood-Off the Hook

Name: Off the Hook Seafood Grill

Cuisine: Seafood

Opinion: Great

Area: Encinitas, Carlsbad

About: Located in one of Encinitas's busiest shopping centers with Best Buy and Stater Bros., this is a great place to quickly relax and enjoy a great meal.

What to order: Fish & Chips, Albacore with lemon butter bowl with brown rice

More info: To order from the main menu you choose a type of fish, then a type of oil or flavoring for it to be cooked in, and how you want it served to you (salad, bowl, plate, sandwich). They also offer various other seafood items. The bowl I ordered came with steamed vegetables and steamed rice which went well with my albacore. The fish was fried perfectly and the french fries were delicious in the fish & chips. Definitely try this place for a quick lunch!

Fish & Chips

Lemon Butter Albacore Bowl with Brown Rice and Steamed Vegetables 


Name: Tomiko Restaurant and Bar

Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi

Opinion: Good

Area: Encinitas

About: A very romantic setting with a great view of Encinitas. The bar area offers a very good happy hour, with different menu items costing only $4,$5, or $6.

What to order: Las Vegas Roll

More info: This Japanese fusion restaurant is definitely on the higher end, I have only tried their happy hour menu which was alright. The happy hour menu was slightly limited not offering any sashimi, mostly rolls and appetizers. There are plenty of other sushi restaurants I would try in Encinitas, but I think their specialty is non-sushi items. The service was great and the atmosphere was worth it.
