This little unassuming roadside place is by far THE BEST MEAL of the weekend! We decided to take a drive up the coast, didn't have a lunch plan, and weren't interested in the big touristy looking places. This looked cute and a quick search on the iPad showed lots of people thought well of it, so we decided to give Malibu Seafood a try. There is the restaurant side and the fish market side - lots of local folks were buying fresh fish to cook at home, a good sign. There was a line but it moved quickly - a casual place, menu is on the wall, you order and pay, and then pick up the food when it's ready at the side window. There are picnic tables on two patios next to the building, quite comfortable actually, and the view of the ocean is spectacular, a (multi) million dollar view. But let's talk about the food - it was delicious, scrumptious, incredible. We started with the shrimp cocktail. It was a good portion of super fresh, plump, sweet prawns, with seafood cocktail sauce in a little container on the side. The shrimp were so good we ignored the sauce. Then, I had the squid sandwich. It was amazing - a thick slab of super fresh soft squid, grilled (not fried) on toasted sourdough bread with simple slices of fresh summery tomatoes, lettuce, and red onion. It usually comes with tartar sauce but I skipped that, trust me, no additions needed to this wonderful treat! I can't remember last time I enjoyed a sandwich so much. My husband had the Ahi burger with fries and loved it - a thick slab of Ahi with tartar sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and onion piled on a soft bun, served with a big portion of thick cut fries, he had a great meal. Sitting together watching the ocean in the sunshine on this beautiful day and enjoying a great simple meal - well, life just can't get much better!
