Final LA blog (for this trip) - Blue Plate Oysterette
I know I just went to Blue Plate butttttt we were in the mood for easy seafood and had never been. The newest addition to the Blue Plate family (of two) is in amazing location, right on Ocean with a view out to the palisades. They have dressed it up with a light beachy feel and put a few picnic style benches outside to enjoy the weather and the people watching.
We ate:
- shrimp cobb salad - generous portion, as Blue Plate is wont to do, and very tasty. The shrimp were cooked perfectly with no iodine-y flavor and the dressing was zesty and not too heavy.

- fish tacos with grilled mahi mahi, cabbage and a cilantro aioli, accompanied by fresh pico de gallo and guacamole - The fish tacos were surprisingly delicious. The fish was cooked to perfection, very moist and flaky, and the aioli was delicious (didn't taste at all like they had squeezed mayonnaise on the tacos) and the whole thing had a nice mild spice. The only weak part was the guacamole which tasted like they had used slightly overripe avocados but I don't want to take away - it was great. Closing thought - straightforward and easy to eat, perfect beach food. mm
