Looking for a fast and healthy option in San Jose?
I was shopping in Westgate shopping center not too long ago and decided to try out a fairly new seafood “fast food” restaurant that recently opened up. Fish’s Wild is a chain that has locations in San Jose and Redwood City.
I was not sure what to expect, other than I was starving and needed food asap.
The restaurant was clean and very bright. I went up to the counter and asked about gluten free.
I will be honest, I got a blank stare.
I had to explain what gluten is, and that I had to ask a LOT of questions.
The employee was really nice. There was a long line behind me and this cashier still took the time to go to the back and bring out labels from the corn tortillas, and sauces so I could read the ingredients and see if they were safe.
1. Fish is grilled and no gluten goes on the grill.
2. The fryer is shared, so don’t order anything fried.
3. They are willing to change gloves if you ask.
Shrimp and tilapia tacos.
I have to say our tacos were really delicious. They weren’t too salty, which is typical of many places. I didn’t investigate all of the dishes this restaurant has on the menu. I picked what I thought was the safest choice and worked with the restaurant to make sure the tacos avoided any potential cross contamination.
If you go to this restaurant, I highly recommend you tell the cashier exactly what precautions you need.
