Every time I come to the Bay Area, Mom makes me promise to eat seafood so she can have the vicarious experience of eating seafood in San Francisco. On this trip, I honored Mom's wish by visiting the Fish Market in Santa Clara. This chain has been a favorite of mine for many years, ever since they opened in Palo Alto many moons ago.
I was disappointed to be asked by the host to wait for five minutes for a table even though almost all the tables were empty, so I ate at the oyster bar. The bartender quickly gave me some sourdough. Doesn't it look great? It tasted great, too.
I ordered grilled salmon for dinner. It was perfectly cooked with just a little bit of char. The cole slaw is of the creamy variety and very crunchy.
