Restaurant: Yess Aquatic
Location: 7th and Mateo (Downtown Los Angeles)
Type of restaurant: Seafood
Maria and I continue "New Food Sundays," inspired by the Los Angeles Times' latest 101 Restaurants special issue. Yess Aquatic's freshly-caught seafood sandwiches sounded like a nice Sunday lunch
What we ordered: Ridgeback prawn sandwich (Bánh mì Style - Ridgeback Prawn, Pâté, Sambal, Pickled Daikon/Carrot, Cucumber/Cilantro, $14); Fish katsu sandwich (Fish Katsu, Nori, Tartar sauce, $13)
High point: You can indeed tell the difference with fresh fish, and these sandwiches were absolutely delicious.
Low point: I spent a good half hour trying to find their truck, as they had moved locations but hadn't made it clear — every notice I got via email and text still highlighted the old location. Don't trust GPS, make sure you drive around (I almost gave up!)
Overall impression: I can't wait for Yess Aquatic to open its brick-and-mortar location; if the truck is any indication, we're in for a great food experience. Loved the extra touch of the Yess Aquatic outfits — it really was straight out of a Wes Anderson movie.
Will we return: Yes!
