Restaurant Review: Slapfish Brings Fresh, Sustainable Seafood to Laguna Beach

Slapfish has taken seafood to a whole new level with boat to table fresh seafood. They found their audience with their food truck. That audience then wanted a restaurant, that became a reality in Huntington Beach. Now, that audience is craving more.

Slapfish responded with a new location in Laguna Beach. This location is about as true to a seafood shack as you can get. Located across the street from the beach, this is a "grab and go" concept for those heading to the beach or on their way home. There are also a few tables outside to enjoy the ocean breeze and eat some of the best tasting seafood around.
The menu here is a back to basics approach. Everyday there are three fish options that rotate out depending on what is available. Their commitment to sustainable seafood sets them apart from other seafood restaurants. They work hard to make sure that the seafood they use is acquired through responsible fishfarming and does not use anything that is over-fished or uses harmful fishing practices.

You simply choose your fish, how it's cooked (crispy or grilled), and how you want it served (slapwich, taco or roll). There are also some of Slapfish's best selling items such as chowder fries, lobster rolls and fish and chips.
We started with the chowder fries. This was my first experience with the chowder fries and all I have to say is why have I waited so long to try these? One of the best tasting things I have ever experienced! Fresh cut fries and fresh clam chowder topped with bacon bits is something I need to enjoy each and every time I am at Slapfish!
We also ordered the lobster dip n chips. Nice chunks of lobster mixed in a rich, creamy dip. The chips are  fresh and crispy with some seasoning on top of them. So delicious and we made short work on this tasty dish!
Brian ordered the shrimp and chips. The shrimp was deep fried in a light tempura style batter. So fresh and addicting. The fresh shrimp were rich and buttery tasting.
I went with the grilled mahi slapwich. Buttery brioshe with tomato, lettuce and pickled onions bring this slapwich together. Adding the appropriately named "Awesome Sauce" (creamy smoked pepper) to the mix brought a flavor explosion! The delicious fresh made kettle chips went great with my slapwich!
Oh, one more thing! They have Batch Craft Soda as well! Check out the soda they offer on the far left! That's right it is Shirley Temple on tap! One more fantastic reason to come and have amazing seafood and one of my favorite drinks on tap!

Fantastic fresh seafood awaits you! What are you waiting for? Who wants to go with me? I need more chowder fries!

Slapfish is located at 211 Broadway in Laguna Beach

Discovery Science Center Hosts MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition June 14, 2014 – September 7, 2014

Discovery Science Center Hosts MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition
The Cube offers visitors the chance to become a MythBuster during the blockbuster exhibit of the summer – June 14 – September 7, 2014; tickets now on sale
SANTA ANA, Calif. (May 20, 2014) – Discovery Channel’s Emmy®-nominated series comes to life to uncover truths behind popular myths by mixing scientific method with gleeful curiosity and old-fashioned ingenuity in MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, which makes its way to Discovery Science Center beginning June 14, 2014 – September 7, 2014.
The exhibition creates hands-on, interactive experiences for guests of all ages by combining popular scientific facts with innovative, family-friendly displays. In MythBusters, co-hosts Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman, Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara take scientific investigation to exciting new levels by proving or exploding myths using their highly experimental approach and extensive backgrounds in special effects. Savage and Hyneman were heavily involved throughout the development of the exhibition to ensure guests experience a true MythBusting encounter.

"It's exciting to see fans take on some of our favorite experiments from the show while drawing their own conclusions and data," said Savage."Although they are tackling the same myths and questions, each guest can have a unique experience within the exhibit."

"We hope people have fun at the exhibit and get a sense of what it is like doing the show." added Hyneman.
Guests of Discovery Science Center will learn about myths, the MythBusters and what experimenting is all about by participating in a series of fun, hands-on experiences and live demonstrations. Experiments cover topics such as flight, friction, gravity, speed and combustion. The exhibition showcases:

Blueprint Room – Based on the real-life operations room of the MythBusters’ iconic set, this room acts as an introduction to MythBusting and is filled with gadgets, props, video and, of course, blueprints used by the hosts to explore myths on the show. 
* Workshop – This is the place where guests turn into investigators and use real science to test myths.  Guest discover whether they get more wet running versus walking in the rain and find out if toast really does always land buttered-side down.
* Live MythBusters Demonstration Stage – Here guests have the opportunity to view and participate in live science demonstrations that dissect myths with the help of a team of energetic MythBusting facilitators.

“This exhibit is pure science at its core,” said Joe Adams, president of Discovery Science Center. “One of our cornerstone initiatives here at the Science Center is S.T.E.M. proficiency and this exhibit allows guests to experiment, hypothesize, and measure results by engaging and using their hands!”

Doors open to the public on June 14, 2014MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition is currently $10 per person plus general admission fees. Discounted tickets are available for a limited time. Tickets can be purchased at the Science Center or online at General admission prices are as follows: adult ($16.95), senior ($12.95), and children ages 3-14 ($12.95).

Featuring Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen and directed by Rob Gibbs (“Mater's Tall Tales”), Radiator Springs 500 1/2 tells the story of a “leisurely drive” planned in honor of Radiator Springs’ town founder, Stanley, which turns precarious as Baja pros descend on the town and challenge Lightning McQueen to an off-road race. Meanwhile, the townsfolk, led by a Stanley-costumed Mater, enjoy the planned “leisurely drive” to retrace Stanley’s original frontier route. Thinking they’re on the same course, a wrong turn sends McQueen and the Baja pros on a treacherously wild bid for survival. The misunderstanding leaves the racing professionals in awe of the “legend” of Stanley: the Original Off-Road Racer
