Restaurant of the Week: Fish-O-Licious

fish1

Fish-O-Licious, 4200 Chino Hills Parkway (at Pipeline), Chino Hills; open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily

Chino Hills has Pacific Fish Grill at the Shoppes, an informal seafood spot about which I posted in 2009. One wishes there were more such places in the Inland Valley. Well, since December there’s been a second, and it’s also in Chino Hills: Fish-O-Licious. It’s a wannabe chain with one other location, in Commerce.

Some of the menu offerings are fried, others are grilled. And before you wonder if this is a gussied-up H. Salt, the motto is “Fresh Seafood Daily.” I had lunch there with a friend recently.

I had the special No. 3 ($10, bottom), a plate of sole with a slightly sweet sauce with pineapple and peppers, as well as an above-average slaw, a roll and, in a pleasant surprise, a soda. Not a bad price, and the food was very good. My friend had the three fish taco plate ($8, below), which came with fries. She liked the tacos but thought tortilla chips would be a better side than fries.

They have sole, salmon, catfish, halibut, shrimp and scallops, as well as chicken (for those who hate fish, I guess) and chowder.

My friend’s comment was that it’s good to have another healthy option but that it’s pretty similar to Pacific Fish Grill. My comment is, I like it, but why can’t it be in a different city? Chino Hills has all the fun.

    Haven’t eaten here yet, though it’s walking distance from my house, but I’d like to! But I have to share that you mention that this place isn’t a “gussied-up H. Salt,” which is cool only because Fish-O-Licious is just a few doors down from a now-closed H. Salt Fish & Chips that my wife and I went to a couple of times.

    I liked H. Salt.

    That’s all I got. Well, that and there’s nothing wrong with Chino Hills having all the fun! Granted, if I lived in another city besides Chino Hills, I might have a different opinion.

      I have no beef with H. Salt (ha ha). Didn’t know there had been one a few doors away, and I can see how that’s funny too.
