Walking into Coconut's Fish Cafe I would have told you that coleslaw and coconut shrimp are not my favorite. Walking out was a whole different story. I was ranting and raving to all my friends that they should be jealous they didn't get a dinner as delicious as mine.
Our dinner started off with the Calamari Steaks, and boy-oh-boy were they tender. Hands down, some of the best calamari I've had to date.
The Poke Bowl, served atop a bed of coconut milk based coleslaw and brown rice, is extremely light. You can literally taste how fresh the Ahi tuna is!
The Coconut Shrimp was perfectly paired with their sweet thai chili sauce with a hint of pineapple. I would have gladly ordered two rounds of this and made it my dinner.
The Fish Tacos bring a line out the door to Coconut's. Filled with Mahi Mahi and Ono fish, line caught from the deeps of the pacific, is cut twice a day to keep the fish fresh for lunch and dinner guests. Laying on two corn tacos - the first is toasted and crisp and the second captures all the flavors - this is a beast of a taco. Avocado, coleslaw, and their mango salsa that has a kick of jalapeno, overflow from the tortilla.
If tortillas aren't your thing, they have The Mountain. Your choice of protein topped on a pile of brown rice. More than enough for leftovers (and trust me, the leftovers are just as delicious).
Coconut's originated in Maui, and probably the closest you can get to authentic Hawaiian food in the area. Check them out in Plano, TX!
