Malibu Seafood

Malibu. Or the ‘Bu rather. Somewhere along the coast, a couple minutes past Pepperdine, is Malibu Seafood. There really isn’t much to eat in Malibu because it seems like a predominantly residential area. But of the few eating establishments there, Malibu Seafood, along with Subway, is great.

The seafood here is fresh. So fresh that I have to spell it out, F-R-E-S-H, fresh. But I come here for the fried seafood. I mean, you put together quality ingredients and consistently fry them to as perfect as they can be, you can’t ever go wrong.

I usually get the fried shrimp and fries.  They’re cut in butterflies and covered with panko bread crumbs.  I’m always amazed at how they’re so consistent with frying their foods.  The crispiness is just right.  It’s never overcooked.  It’s never too hard.  It’s never soggy.  And the shrimp inside is cooked just right as well.  And this pretty much goes with everything else that’s fried.  And how could I forget their cocktail sauce!!  I normally don’t like cocktail sauce.  But this has got herbs and spices in them or something.  It’s perfect for the fried seafood.

Their Ahi Tuna Burger is great too.  The thing pictured above is actually the Fried Scallop Sandwich.  But aside from the Ahi Tuna Burger, I have yet to venture off from the fried foods, which is a shame really.

Everything about Malibu Seafood screams quality.  And if you’re into the whole beach view thang then you can do that here too.  Everything here is “take-out” but they do have a patio area to eat your vittles.  There are three tiers with the view.  The popular tiers are the bottom two, which I don’t really understand.  It’s closer to the coast but not that much closer.  Huge parasols are your only source of shade but you know that game you play when you’re the unlucky one that gets all the sun.  Screw that, go to the top where there’s a roof over your head, more seats, and you still have a view of the ocean.  And it’s further away from PCH, though not by much.  And you get to listen to Elton John nonstop (that was kind of supposed to be sarcastic).

Can’t find parking?  Park along PCH.  Need to head back to LA but can’t make a U-turn?  Drive a bit further until you hit the signal light and there’s a “U-turn” light.

    I applied to Pepperdine…I almost went there, but their financial aid was crappy compared to USC’s generous grant. Would have been nice to go there next to the beach ad breathe in that fresh air! I’m beginning to get really sick of our downtown area…

    Anyway. lol, I usually get wary with fried fish, because I automatically assume, “week old seafood they need to douse in hot oil to mask the fishy stink!” But those do look like good quality!

      Want to switch? Haha, I miss USC. It’s close to everything that’s worthwhile in LA. There’s literally nothing to do in Malibu, unless you like the beach. I’m not much of a beach-person, but even if I was, us first year law students don’t have time for that!

      The seafood here is fresh. Their fried food is what most people seem to be ordering so they probably don’t have enough seafood to hold onto for a week anyway!

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!
