Portside is that popular seafood stall at Trade in Irvine that sells huge combo platters of whole grilled lobster, fried calamari, fried fish, peel-and-eat shrimp and french fries (yes, all on the same platter). Their fish is good.

But what’s even better is their off-menu crispy chicken taco. It’s not listed on the menu board, but the restaurant frequently posts photos of the crispy taco on Instagram, so it’s not entirely a secret.
Been wanting to try this place for a while since it opened, and let’s just say it did not disappoint. The portions are very generous, and the sauces are tasty. I ordered the fish and chips just to see if they could master a simple food menu item, and they sure did. Very good size of Fish and a generous portion of fries.
