Pacific Catch--Mountain View, CA

Monday, Jenny's parents gave us the night off. Even though I love college basketball (and my bracket was on the line), I didn't mind missing the championship game. What can be better than a date night outside in perfect weather with Jenny? We went to Pacific Catch.

I reviewed the San Francisco Pacific Catch three years ago. Compared to that version, the Mountain View location ism much more spacious and pleasant. They started us off complementary bottled water--nice touch! I took it sparkling.

Jenny liked the mix of textures and flavors in her Japanese Wasabi Rice Bowl (featuring ahi). She chose brown rice. We would have liked to see the tuna a more vibrant red, but other than that, the bowl was great!

Wanting something meaty, heavy and rough, I got the swordfish (fresh catch of the day) with chutney. Yes, it was a little on the tougher side, but it met expectations. The Perfuvian purple mashed potatoes were delightful for the eyes. In the mouth, they tasted just like mashed Idahos.

We wrapped with a brownie sundae. The brownie was a bit too sweet, drowning out the flavor of the vanilla ice cream. Though this dessert was a bit pricey at $8, it was nevertheless a delightful cap to a great evening out.
