What’s for Lunch: SLAPFISH
Trade in your boring sack lunch for a major upgrade when you head to SLAPFISH at University Center in Irvine.
The food truck-turned-restaurant presents an American seafood experience that revolves around fresh, sustainable fish that’s prepared simply and delivers big flavors. Chef Andrew Gruel’s ocean-fresh menu emphasizes bold flavors with seafood sourced from well-managed suppliers of eco-friendly seafood.
Known for serving only the freshest fish and shellfish, a constantly changing chalkboard at the front of the restaurant names the Daily Fish options which can be served on a salad, in a sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and your choice of sauce on brioche bread, or as a plate served with rice and salad.
Some of our lunchtime favorites are the Ultimate Fish Taco, served grilled or crispy with your choice of Daily Fish, cabbage, avocado puree and pickled onion in a corn tortilla.
You also can’t go wrong with the Lobster roll – succulent pieces of lobster tail, claw and knuckle meat drizzled with butter, served on a grilled bun.
Slapfish at University Center is located across from Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, off Campus Dr. in Irvine near UCI.
