Smoking fish that is. And I was reminded again last week that there is no better smoked fish in our fair city than at Laszlo’s Gourmet Smoked Fish in Old Sacramento.Â Sure, going to Old Sac is a pain in the ass what with the brick streets (notice they’re not cobblestones, they’re bricks, make note of it), the all-day meter enforcement, the strange DMV-like conglomoration of humanity, but it’s all worth it once you get a bite of Laz’s incredible fish. I’m telling you, his smoky treats were the hit of my family’s Easter feast. Even my nephew for whom ketchup is an exotic condiment loved it.Â Be it sturgeon, shark, shrimp, or salmon, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better chunk of formerly swimming goodness than at Laszlo’s strangely located Front Street store.
And before you start to complain that it’s too expensive at $7.95 per quater pound, realize that a) Laszlo is adorable, b)Â fresh fish is only slightly less expensive and c) honestly, how often do you buy smoked fish anyway? It’s not like they made a Sesame Street short about it.
