It may be in a random stretch of south Scottsdale
, but Chula Seafood is definitely worth the drive. What started as a family wholesale business now includes a small kitchen and retail space where you can get delicious Hawaiian-style poke bowls and fresh seafood sandwiches. On Saturdays, the hot-smoked salmon—which tops a toasted everything bagel from nearby Super Chunk Sweets & Treats—draws a crowd. It’s served with the typical sides, plus a bit of jalapeño for spice. All of the fish at Chula Seafood comes fresh, never frozen, from San Diego in two weekly runs made by the owners themselves.
