Dining Guide for Families in Orange County

Five Must-Have Seafood Dishes at Slapfish Irvine

We dined as a guest of Slapfish


College students attending UCI, and families living in the surrounding areas are in for a treat with the opening of the all-new Slapfish Seafood location in the University Center (right across from UCI.) Slapfish brings sustainable seafood, and rich, bold flavors together to create some of the most delicious seafood dishes available in Orange County.


Slapfish is the first place where my “picky eater” finally gave into eating seafood for the first time. It is still the only place where I can get him to enjoy the health benefits of sustainable seafood. While Slapfish is known for their rich and savory lobster roll, they also have a lot of other dishes that I highly recommend trying, including the lobster lettuce roll.



The Chowder Fries! I would never have expected this dish to be my daughters favorite, but it is. A cup full of freshly cooked natural fries are topped with creamy clam chowder and bacon. If you’re in the mood for something “ultimate” ask them to top it with with a fried egg to make it “Mermaid Fries.”




The Anteater Burger! Slapfish is all about school spirit and created a specialty burger that can only be found at the Slapfish Irvine location. The burger is a little slice of heaven with a juicy slice of meat, cheese, fried shrimp, and tons of awesomesauce. I guarantee that you can’t just eat one bite of this mouthwatering burger.


Hop Pop Fish Bites! While at first I didn’t feel like this fried fish dish would be something that I would fall in love with, it is a dish that I will order again. The fried fish has a tangy bite, and I warn you that it is a little spicy for the little ones.


Organic Salad! Those who are looking to watch their waistline, I recommend ordering the organic salad. Guests can choose their favorite seasonal fish, and it will come on top of a bed of spinach, arugula, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, and topped with a tomato vinaigrette.



Ultimate Fish Taco! Finally, I can’t forget to recommend this popular Slapfish dish. Guests can order their fish fried or grilled on a corn tortilla with cabbage, avocado puree, and pickled onion. The size of the taco is quite large and when paired with a salad it will make a perfect lunch.


Slapfish has other Orange County locations in Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, and Huntington Beach. The next time you’re in Irvine, make plans to have lunch or dinner at the new Irvine Slapfish location. Enjoy eating on the relaxed outdoor patio, and then walk next door to Monster for some epic dessert creations.
