For those lamenting the closing of Califire Grill; the 2 Fishermen Grill in Downtown Fullerton is here to ease your suffering.
2 Fishermen Grill opened their doors on Wednesday Nov. 13 and are slowly but surely catching the attention of the community.
The grill provides their customers a wide variety of food options that will cater to all types of eaters. From choice meats, healthy salads, decadent deserts and, as their name implies, seafood as their signature dish; 2 Fishermen Grill has the power to win the hearts of the pickiest of eaters.
“I’m very particular when it comes to seafood, especially poke,” said customer Faith De la Cruz, referring to a dish she ordered called the poke bowl. “But I must say that this is by far one of the best poke bowls I’ve ever had.”
The steak bowl (a little pricey at $9.95) was a recommendation by the cashier that did not fail to satisfy. The bowl consisted of a salad with lettuce and red cabbage, rice, pico de gallo, cheese, a signature citrus-cream sauce along with teriyaki and of course a generous amount of juicy steak that was not lost behind the greens like most places.
Anna Oh, owner of 2 Fisherman Grill, opened the doors of the grills first location in Santa Ana two and half years ago and believes that the success there has paved the way for her to expand into downtown Fullerton.
“Business has grown tremendously; the logical thing to do is expand,” Oh said. “We have many customers who tell us our location is the best stop for their lunch break; we want to be able to provide the same satisfaction in Fullerton.”
Oh added that her restaurant is a healthier food alternative with fresher ingredients that avoid unnecessary heavy and unhealthy oils that most restaurants use.
The quality of the food is outstanding, leaving a lasting impression of its uniqueness that will leave you hungry for more.
For the customer on the college budget the price may be a little steep but then again isn’t everything else in downtown? Thankfully the portion to price ratio exceeds that and is well worth it.
The most expensive item on the menu is an ocean salad for $12.95 and the least is $2.95 for a fish taco. Not to mention the grill offers lunch specials for $5.95 Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
If a customer is more concerned about generating likes of food pictures or selfies on their Instagram, they can be assured that the food presentation is flawless.
The grill is opened Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. and closed on Sundays. The 2 Fishermen Grill is located at 133 West Chapman Ave.
