Seafood Sampler - Catfish, Crabcake, Prawn, and Oyster

I lived in Menlo Park for 3 years and had no idea this place existed. I don’t know if that’s good or bad, because if I had known about it I probably would have frequented it more often than I should. My friends and I all ordered the seafood platter, which comes with two pieces of fish (we chose catfish, which was recommended on several review sites), a crab cake, one prawn, and one huge oyster. We also got a side order of fried okra, which was cut into small bite-size pieces and dipped in a light cornmeal batter. The catfish was definitely my favorite – now I’m not sure I’ll be able to go back to regular beer battered fish. Sometimes beer batter overwhelms the fish and results in a less-than-ideal ratio of 2:1, batter to fish, and the flavor of the fish disappears. The light cornmeal batter provides a crispy, non-greasy thin coating which really lets the fish shine through. I don’t know what spices they add to the batter, but I was craving the fish for days! Definitely recommend the catfish and okra, but I’d pass on the crab cake – it’s made with fake imitation crab.
