On the monthly visit to Sam’s Club, we noticed a new eatery in the Portofino shopping center, across the freeway from the Woodlands. Called Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, it’s a West Coast (in this case, California and Colorado) fast casual chain offering a variety of Cali-Mex dishes in a faux surf-shack setting.
Quick Visit to Wahoo’s Fish Tacos
More than anything, it reminded me of Chuy’s Hula Hut in Austin after being run through the corporate concept machine.
But how about the food?
That is a lot of salsa (which in this case means marinated tomatos) and shredded cabbage. We’re pretty sure there’s fish under there somewhere.
Biting into it revealed that there is, in fact, fish involved. But it was dry, bland, and not terribly flavorful. The suggested creamy cilantro sauce didn’t do much to help, either, although it would have been nice on chips (of which none were offered.)
Bottom line: If you’re craving a fish taco, skip Wahoo and drive over to Berryhill on Market Street.
