Fish King: Off Colorado - Glendale

I mentioned Fish King in one of my comment replies for a previous post on Seafood City. Fish King is where I usually go for fresh seafood. It's a little way off Colorado Blvd in Glendale, but I figured I should give Fish King the props their due.

This place is awesome and one of THE places to go for fresh seafood on the east side. One thing I like is that they do clearly display the origin of their product.

They also have a "fast food" area where they will grill or fry up many varieties of seafood. It's a great place to go to get a food fix if your not in the mood for cooking. Here is a pic of some fried oysters with fries.

They also do platters of sushi, sashimi...etc. for any bigger parties you may be hosting. You'll need to put in a couple days notice but it will be a hit for sure.

    I love fish king! Their "crunch fish" and lobster bisque, not to mention all the fresh selections for cooking, and I always leave with some cracked crab for the chef!

    In total agreement... Fish King is the only place to buy fish. And they have great hours as well. One note about their 'Galley'... I somehow expected (wished) the (seasonal) soft shell crab to be fried in the light tempura style batter befitting this Japanese American-started business. Alas, the frying style that day was singularly American, doughy and heavy; it overpowered the soft shell crab. Note: their beef teriaki skewers are a good choice for fish-o-phobes, as long as you don't horse them onto a too-hot grill where they burn, dry out and toughen.

    Funny you should mention the Fish King batter-fried Maryland Soft Shell Crab. I was considering doing another post on these puppies. While I have to agree with you that I much prefer the lightly covered fried soft shell crab you may get in other Japanese Sushi establishments, the meatiness of the King Fish soft shell crab gets me everytime I go there. I still end up getting a fried soft shell crab despite my preferences - and I still do enjoy it.
