Tacos mingle with sushi at Fish Pit
A gem of an eatery in SDSU’s college area, Fish Pit is a small, casual shack kitchen that accomplishes big things with fresh seafood at a reasonable price. Served through a counter window into a covered porch dining area with countertops made from old surfboards, the lace looks like a taco shop, but Fish Pit’s surprising specialty is sushi. Not to fear, a full menu of sustainably sourced seafood tacos combine the best of its influences to bring a distinctive and delicious take on fish tacos to town.
Take your pick of pecan crusted local halibut, seared scallops, and blackened salmon to explore the creativity of owner/chef Zach Stofferahn, but if you love the idea of a sushi influence on your fish taco, aim for the sesame and wasabi seared tuna, topped with *kaiware* sprouts, and pickled cucumber. And if you like that, any on of the Fish Pit’s five kinds of poke may be turned into a taco! Opt for the kimchi poke with seaweed, avocado, daikon, carrots and pickled jalapeno; or the signature Fish pit poke, featuring avocado, mango, Asian pear, seaweed, chili sauce, and toasted coconut. You won’t forget it!
