Seafood and sushi tsunami hits downtown Fullerton

Cory Knowles


When it comes to finding some delicious and inexpensive seafood deals in Orange County, one wouldn’t necessarly think Fullerton as the goto for a good catch. However, downtown Fullerton offers seafood deals at A+ prices.

We start at the popular hotspot for sushi and Sapporo, Chomp Rockin’ Sushi & Teppan Grills. Chomp is by far the best spot in Fullerton for sushi happy hour because of their lively atmosphere and crazy deals. Select sushi, rolls, and appetizers are between $2.95 and $6.95. Favorites like the California roll and the Philadelphia roll are under $5, while specialty rolls like the rainbow roll and the spicy crunch roll are under $7. Less than $6 will get you tasty appetizers like stuffed jalapenos and a chicken teriyaki bowl. If you’re thirsty for an authentic taste of Japan then their selection of over five Japanese beers will satisfy your urge and at only $3 each. Your pockets will be happy as well.

Our second and final stop of the night landed at The Palapa Grill near Florentines Grill. They offer happy hour from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. everyday! Along with their savory crispy wahoo fish burrito, one can enjoy $5 appetizers and $3 beers. The absolute best part about The Palapa Grill are the fish bowls. Their fish bowls are large bowls filled with 100 ounces of selected cocktails that allow you and a group of friends to share the experience of drinking together through your own twenty-inch straw. Try the Hawaiian Hula Whoo Hoo Woo Woo for a concoction of vodka, peach schnapps, cranberry, pineapple, grenadine, sprite, and 151 rum. Be sure to ask your waiter for the happy hour specials.
