Coconut’s Fish Café has opened a new location on the Southwest corner of Alma School and Ocotillo Roads in Chandler. The third fish café is located in the brand new Shops at Ocotillo.
Coconut’s Fish Cafe was founded in 2009 on Maui and local owner Kim Kuhljuergen opened the first mainland location in North Scottsdale in 2013. Kuhljuergen opened a second location at Scottsdale and Shea in June 2015 and has been planning for at least two more locations throughout the valley. The Chandler location is the first departure from Scottsdale and Kuhljuergen said, “We have had people driving to enjoy our food from the East Valley for years—we are delighted to give them an option in Chandler.”
Coconut’s Chandler location features an expansive patio, bright and airy interior and the same fresh and healthy menu featuring Mahi Mahi and Ono fish tacos, grilled fish burgers, the infamous “Taco Mountain,” seafood pasta and more. Coconut’s Chandler will be open seven days per week from 11:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.
Kuhljuergen first experienced the fish fish taco bliss at Coconut’s Fish Café’s Hawaii location while vacationing in Maui in 2010. He knew after several visits that no restaurant like Coconut’s existed in the Phoenix Metro area and he began his quest to bring the restaurant to the mainland.
Coconut’s Fish Café has won numerous national accolades including a near perfect score from the Zagat Guide, one of the best places to “Eat like a local” from Travel +Leisure magazine and many more.
Kuhljuergen will open another location of Coconuts’ Fish Café in the Phoenix Metropolitan area in the next three years.
