We took a little drive further up the coast to visit a few more little coastal towns. Waldport turned out to be a dud, but Yachats turned out to be an adorable gem. It’s pretty teeny, but it has a little area with some restaurants. We checked out the yelp mobile app and found the Luna Sea Fish House. It’s also teeny, with maybe about 20 seats indoors. It’s all about the seafood here, duh! They have a boat, or perhaps boats, and they catch things in that big vast ocean, come back, and sell it here. That’s a brilliant business model if you ask me. Unless someone just spilled bajillion gallons of oil into your particular vast ocean.
J got the fish tacos (sense a theme yet?). These were hearty with guacamole. And they must have been particularly juicy, as the fish dripped fish juice all over the fries. J liked the fries. I did not care for them. They were too thick for my liking.
And me? I got the slumgullion. What the heck is a slumgullion? It is a big bowl of clam chowder with white cheeses and bay shrimp. And man, it is big and it is great. I ate the whole thing and could have eaten more. The chowder itself was good, and the addition of the cheeses and the shrimp just made it better. It’s served with garlic bread, which is too crunchy and too burnt. So don’t waste your time on that, and just slurp down the darn slumgullion. Slumgullion. Say that five times!
The service is nice, but not the fastest. One person does everything up front. And man, did she have gravity defying hair! It was remarkable! And there’s probably only one or two people in the back cooking. But the food is excellent, fresh, and it’s a real homey place. When in Yachats, it’s a must-do!
