The Best Places To Eat Salmon In Anchorage
Everyone knows the best salmon comes from Alaska, so it’s only logical that we also know how to cook it the best!
We’ve put together a list of the best restaurants to try salmon, Alaska-style.
The Red Chair Cafe: Salmon Bacon
337 E 4th Ave, Anchorage, AK 99501
The Red Chair Cafe offers egg benedict with lightly seared salmon bacon layered into the mix. It’s lighter and healthier than traditional pork bacon, but equally delicious, and a unique way to serve the fish. Also, the salmon balances very well with the rich and creamy sauce.
Slippery Salmon Bar and Grill: Salmon Chowder
115 E 3rd Ave, Anchorage, AK 99501
Everyone had had clam chowder, but salmon chowder is the soup you didn’t know you were missing. It’s rich and warm enough to ward off a chill, and when paired with a sandwich, can fill up even the hungriest person for lunch. We recommend matching it to the Salmon BLT, which comes with a bit of guacamole for extra flavor.
Spenard Roadhouse: Thai Salmon Sandwich
1049 W Northern Lights Blvd, Anchorage, AK 99503
Another great spot for lunch, the Spenard Roadhouse offers an fresh twist on a sandwich, marrying salmon with Thai flavors like lemongrass. The cucumber is a particularly bright note, while the sriracha aioli balances everything with the perfect amount of spice.
Orso: Sockeye Deviled Eggs
Sockeye salmon and king crab in deviled eggs? It’s as delicious as it sounds. However, the salmon dishes at Orso don’t stop there. Continue your dinner with the house chowder, featuring salmon and clams, then dig in to the King Crab Legs, served with a salmon-stuffed tomato. By the end, you’ll want to move to Anchorage permanently.
