Hands down, of all the bowls of soup I’ve taken in, the Seven Seafood Soup at La Costa in Fortuna is the most enjoyable. My son had soccer tryouts today, and we went for lunch. It’s Sunday, when they serve this incredible production with seven different seafood items – but the real essence is the TLC-laden broth. I’m told they use the fish head and bones to draw out the rich spicy broth. Perfect for a cold day when you have a slightly sore throat.
My son threw down some of the shrimp cocktail, which tasted like an excellent gazpacho with fresh prawns.
Okay, my kids only counted six items (fish, crab, mussels, scallops, prawns, oysters), but maybe there’s something more in the broth.
I’ve never had a dish I didn’t like there, and the fresh steaming homemade corn tortillas just round out the experience.
I don’t often give a restaurant two great reviews, having already posted one. But this bowl of soup just called for special attention.
