Over the years, this Mexican chain has recruited waves of new fans using delicious dishes that ride on food trends in addition to speaking to local tastes. The seafood tacos (mahi mahi, cod, shrimp) are excellent by the highest of Californian standards, as are the popular fried platters of calamari, and the Hawaiian poke bowl that comes in six varieties. It's all standard bay area fare, but it always comes out perfectly fried, salted, and sauced, making Pacific Catch a go-to destination for catch-up cuisine, audible conversation, and creative cocktails to go along with it all.
