Dinner at Rosarito Fish Shack is always a fun pick in Williamsburg for dinner and/or happy hour during the week. The restaurant gets very busy on the weekends so you should consider getting a reservation. The Service is kind of hit or miss; however, the food has always been very delicious during each of my visits, making the restaurant worth a try. My favorite menu items include the Pollo Quesadilla and the Entrana Asada. Based on my experiences at Rosarito Fish Shack, I’m recommending that you give it a try.
Here’s a round-up of some of the items I’ve ordered at Rosarito Fish Shack:
The Pollo Quesadilla – served hot, cut in quarters, topped with pico de gallo, with sides of guacamole and sour cream. The grilled flour tortilla was filled with ample amounts of melted cheese and chicken. The tortilla was tender, fresh light with a crunchy texture. The Cheese was rich, flavorful and evenly melted with the juicy, shredded chicken. The guacamole was chilled and creamy.
The Entrana Asada – served very hot on a large wooden slab, with a large cut of skirt steak accompanied with a very generous portion of hot fries and mixed green salad tossed with vinaigrette and shaved carrots with a small metal ramekin of salsa verde. The steak was tender, juicy and well seasoned.
Chicken Enchiladas – served hot covered in crema sauce, Mexican cheese and garnished with herbs, crunchy sliced radishes and Cotija cheese. The tortillas were warm and tender, stuffed with a proportionate amount of juicy and tastefully seasoned shredded chicken and evenly melted, rich Mexican cheese, dressed in a sweet and thick Mole sauce. The crema sauce was creamy and smooth. Over, the Enchiladas were on the sweeter side. The Chicken Enchiladas were served with a side of rice and beans.
The Rosarito Burger – was topped with smoked bacon, sautéed onion, two large slices of tomatoes and lettuce, accompanied with a generous portion of fries.
The Salmon – served atop a bed of sautéed black kale with mashed potatoes, garnished with fresh greens, radishes, a lemon wedge and jalapeno pesto. The Salmon was delicious and was served with a crispy exterior and moist inside. The black kale was lightly sautéed, and well seasoned. The potatoes were creamy and had a delicious buttery flavor. The jalapeno pesto was creamy and had a spicy flavor.
The Pastel de Chocolate – served opposite a medium scoop of vanilla and banana flavored ice cream and topped with finely chopped, sweet macerated strawberries, garnished with powdered sugar. The hot tart was moist, with a hot, rich, creamy chocolate center. The ice cream was cold and creamy with a delightful vanilla and banana flavor.
