Bear Flag Fish Co.

It’s been a long time comin’, but I’ve finally tried Bear Flag Fish Co.! After hearing loads of positive feedback, it’s been on my list forever! I recently moved to Irvine, so all of these restaurants on the “south” side of OC are a lot more accessible to me now.

After a long hike at Crystal Cove, I stopped by Bear Flag. Poke on the brain, I knew I was going to order some. When I saw that a pound was going to set me back about $20, I settled for the 1/2 pound at around $9 and a couple fish tacos also around the same price.

The Poke was good, reminded me of Hawaiian poke you can get at the grocery stores there. I’d get it again as it wasn’t fishy and was a light but still filling “meal”.

My Mahi Mahi fish tacos were really good. Probably one of the better fish tacos of my life. The fish was tasty and definitely fresh. Topped with pico de gallo, slaw and their special sauce, it was nothing short of everything you could want.

My friend ordered a Mahi Mahi burrito that looked amazing. It was a HUGE serving, so I would say it’s money well spent. Includes rice, beans, fish, sauce and some fixins just like the tacos. YUM.

So, would I come back? Yes. But only on a weekend that followed a payday!

The Big Cheese

Literally. Thanks to Del Taco!

If you haven’t heard, Del Taco has spruced up their tacos that everyone knows and secretly loves. Now called, The Del Taco, these new tacos are meatier and cheesier! They were nice enough to bring some of their new tacos to the OC Weekly offices during lunch time last week.

In honor of this promotion, they also delivered a 40 lb. edible work of art. WOW. IS THIS REAL LIFE?

As I chose a taco (or three) out of the brown paper bags, you could immediately tell it’s a little on the heartier side. There’s more freshly grated cheddar cheese, more beef (or turkey, which I LOVE) and they’re crunchier!

Of course, you get the tomatoes and lettuce per usual. And let’s not forget about doubling up on Del Inferno sauce.

If this post made you hungry, and you have $1.39 then I’ll meet you at the drive-thru.
