Hi, everyone! David and Kelly from RushOrder over here! As recent LA transplants from San Francisco and Boston, we realize we’ve got a lot of local food to catch up on. We’re embarking on a journey to try it all, and you’re coming with us as we document some of our gastronomic escapades, so come along and join us on this appetizing ride.

This week, we tried Seasalt Fish Grill, a restaurant that serves delicious, fresh seafood in Downtown LA. To see some of our experience, and watch our taste buds in action, we put together a little clip:



Below are some more thoughts on the poke and catfish ‘n chips dishes we ordered. Maybe this will convince you to give Seasalt Fish Grill a try for yourself:


The Poke 3 Ways is made with Hawaiian Ahi Poke, Spicy Ahi Poke, and Salmon Poke. It’s served with Seasalt slaw and homemade tortilla chips.

“I have never tried poke with tortilla chips, as I’ve always either had raw fish with rice or salad. I immediately liked the idea of having a nacho-style poke dish, and when my dish arrived in front of me, I was even more amazed by the colorful presentation and the amount of food that I received! I really enjoyed each style of poke they provided, but my favorite would have to be the Spicy Ahi Poke because it had a nice balance between the sweet and spiciness of the fish. That being said, all of the poke sides complemented each other excellently.” – David

The Cornmeal Crusted Catfish ‘n Chips is made with fresh catfish that’s lightly hand-breaded, served with fries, Seasalt slaw and homemade tartar sauce.

“The first thing that stood out to me were the portions. I got three huge pieces of fresh catfish. The fish was moist and flaky while perfectly breaded and crispy on the outside. The breading was thin, not like other fish ‘n chips I’ve had that are over-breaded and get soggy. My favorite parts of the dish were the fries that were sprinkled with a delicious seasoned salt and the homemade tartar sauce. The dish was well balanced. Crunchy and salty with the fish and fries, creamy from the tartar sauce, and crisp and a little sweet from the coleslaw.” – Kelly

In addition to their many poke and fried dishes, they also serve up delicious grilled fish options, as well as fish tacos, burritos, and sandwiches.

We truly did enjoy what we ordered from Seasalt, and hope that you’ll try them for yourself! I think it’s safe to say that these two new Angelenos have a new go-to for some fresh tasting seafood in this city.
