It sure has been quite a while since my last post. It took a while to get all settled in with the starting of school, but don’t fret because I’m still here!
In the last couple of weeks, I took a small trip to Monteray Bay and Moss Landing for a little R&R and a nice meal with the family. It was a nice excuse to walk around, get some exercise in, and take some shots for my photography class.
I come to Monteray quite a bit…but I always visit the same little beach surrounded by a nice lawn!
An interesting sight at Breakwater Cove are these little mussels. Since last year, these empty mussel shells have covered the rocks. I sometimes see marine scientists doing research here which makes you wonder more about what’s going on with our waters.
The parking lot is super small, so you probably will have better luck parking by the street. Luckily, there are some cool boats on one side and a research facility on the other for you to enjoy while you make your way to the restaurant.
Before dinner, we visited the beach located behind Phil’s which a fair amount of people seem to enjoy.
You can purchase fresh seafood here! They have pre-seasoned seafood and unseasoned seafood!
The line was out the door when we arrived at dinnertime (around 6), so it took a while to get our food. However, the wait was worth it. Considering that my comfort food is tortellini in minestrone soup, I absolutely fell in love with their famous Cioppiono, which is a tomato soup with the freshest seafood. Each spoonful had some delicious goodness in it and for the price, it was definitely worth it.
The other dishes that we ordered from the menu was good and the seafood was fresh, but the flavors were not fantastic. However, I think that the Cioppiono alone makes the trip to Phil’s Fish Market & Eatery worthwhile.
Let me know if you visit or have visited Phil’s Fish Market and tried their Cioppiono!
