Dinner at Passionfish, Pacific Grove, CA

Near Monterey we found a really great seafood restaurant. It was not touristy, the decor was understated and sophisticated and the food was better than expected.

Sweet Corn Chowder with Thick Cut Bacon $8
It was a bit sweet (but I should have known that) and the texture was a bit too chunky for me. But, on the whole, this was a well executed, tasty and big bowl of soup.

Crab Cake with Lime Relish $12
This was one of the best crab cakes I've ever had. There was virtually no filler, the outside was extra crispy and the Asian-inspired sauce really cut through the richness of the crab.

Sablefish with Wasabi Slaw and Ginger Sauce $22
The fish was perfectly cooked and the portion was large. The slaw was crispy and interesting. A great dish.

Fresh Berries in a Red Wine Reduction with Vanilla Ice Cream $8
This dessert was fresh and light, but also had depth of flavor from the reduction.

Food: 2
Decor: 2
Service: 1 (We were always waiting for our water to be filled.)
