Seafood is like an undeserved compliment—it has to be fished for, but it always makes the recipient feel better. Drop a line with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sunny seafood and beachy burgers at The Fish Bucket in Dana Point.
Seafood staples and baja barbecue standbys are awash with Pacific flavor on The Fish Bucket's sun-drenched menu. Take flight with a pound of island chicken wings, doused in a tangy szechuan-style sauce, bedazzled with sesame seeds, and served with ranch dressing and a black box to document the experience ($9). The california burger plants a cheddar-laden beef patty beneath a garden of avocado, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and ranch dressing with a haystack of fresh-cut french fries ($9). Transpacific tastes are tempered with two baja-style tacos bursting with beer-battered cod, melty pepperjack, cabbage, and tartar sauce ($7). Sweetly cap off the meal by basking in the glow of the bonfire brownie, served warm with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, and toasted marshmallows ($5), an ideal compliment to a spooky ghost story or pathologically sentimental sing-along.
