Good Food in San Francisco - McCormick & Kuleto's Fresh Seafood

I have to confess that we did not visit McCormick & Kuleto's knowing that they are serving fantastic seafood. We chanced upon it because the Louis Diner right beside was closed for the day. However, our seafood dinner at M & K turns out to be great! 

McCormick & Kuleto's provides a different seafood experience than in the restaurants in Fisherman's Wharf. The food presentation is more elaborate, the service is more prompt and the ambience is casual but not as noisy. 

The restaurant is located right inside Ghiradeli Square and have a good view of San Francisco Bay. Most of the tables in the restaurants are bay view facing. What can be better than having seafood with a sea view?

Here's our recommendations:

Dungeness Crab Cakes (US$17.95) : "This is the best crab cakes that I have ever tasted" - The San Francisco Examiner. I'll raise my hand to second that. The crab cake is crispy on the outside and the crab filling is juicy on the inside. It already taste marvelous without going with any sauce. HY, Ade and I were trying very hard to be cordial while fighting over the 2 pieces of crab cakes.

Pan Seared Scallops with pork belly (US$25.95) -  On my plate were three big scallops pan seared such that the fresh sweetness of the scallop is still locked inside each piece, and unleashed with every bite. Anymore of the the scallops, my dinner experience will be heading towards a diminishing marginal utility.  Thus, the seared pork belly maked this dish hearty and yet not cloying. 

Grilled Halibut (US$31.95) - HY ordered the grilled Halibut. Halibut is the largest of the flat fish species and can be commonly found in the North Pacific waters. The meat is chunky and hence good for grilling. The freshly grilled Halibut with a sprinkle of lemon juice is already sufficient to bring the taste of the ocean right onto the dinner table.
