Barbara's Fishtrap, Fish Shack in Princeton-by-the-Sea on Half Moon Bay

Recommended Posts

Today (Memorial Day), we went to one of my hubby's favorite fish places for brunch:

Barbara Fishtrap
281 Capistrano Road
Half Moon Bay, CA





B says that this other place


which is located 100 feet away from Barbara Fishtrap isn't as good since their menu is more pedestrian even though they take credit cards. Take a look and decide if you ever make it out to my neck of the woods...




On to the food...


Wedge salad with bacon and blue cheese

Huge portion and pretty good even if the kitchen overcooked the eggs (you can tell by the discoloration on the yolk).


Scallops with garlic and white wine, with rice pilaf and fried zucchini sticks

Scallops had a good sear, rice was well-made, zucchini - excellent. Fair value for $26.


Half-order of steamed clams, with green sauce and lemon


For me, tres leches cake; for B, vanilla gelato with whipped cream.

Cake was light even though drenched with milks. One of the better versions I've had.

Total was $120 with tax and 20% tip. Would recommend. We left stuffed.
