REEL IN, LA MALIBUFriday, March 11, 2016
I was supposed to be working the Monday after I attended Hacktech in Caltech (more on that below), - but I'm in LA and with a cousin who ended up taking us for a day-long drive. Part of that drive included going up a nondescript road up the mountain off of highway 1. Which led us onto what felt like driving in a video game feels like.
Then stopped by a seafood place, which had sea bass. Which is the fish I will choose to eat for the rest of my life if I could only have one type.
Juicy, moist, and crisp edges. The steak of a fish was basted in a bit of butter, and all you really needed was maybe some salt and pepper. I only put some of the former, and my god it was delicious. Maybe if it was seasoned better (ie more salt) this would be quite mind blowing. We both ordered this. Very good.
You choose how you want your fish prepared (grilled, with cajun - not spicy, or), and two sides. Sides are nothing compared to the fish. I won't even comment on them.
cousin ordered a clam chowder. It came with little 'oyster' crackers (that has no oyster whatsoever) and kind-of-chewy clams. Very thick and rich. Okay.
|SEA BASS was all I really saw|
I only realized now that we spent more than half the day driving around & up a random street off highway 1 which led us up the hill (very high hill) in Malibu, just off Topanga beach. The difference between the bottom and the top was more than 5 degrees Celsius, as well as the presence of sunlight:
