New Foodbeast Series Follows Family Running California’s Largest Fish Market

Everyday since, Feb. 27, FOODBEAST has launched a brand new episode of Kings Of Fi$h: Season One, giving us a behind-the-scenes perspective of the day-to-day operations of the Ungaro and Amalfitano families — the tight-knit Italian clan that has owned and operated the San Pedro Fish Market and Restaurant since the 1950s. 

The San Pedro Fish Market and Restaurant is one of the largest and most unique seafood dining experiences on the West Coast. With a 50,000 square foot facility that provides seating capacity for more than 3,000 people, the San Pedro Fish Market served more than 1.2 million people last year. On an average Sunday, the market will see about 20,000 visitors. 

Within this cohesive family unit, you can instantly notice that this has become more than just a family business, as its evolved into an iconic geographical and cultural landmark in the Port of Los Angeles. Thanks to beautiful seafood platters — like the World Famous Shrimp Tray — and an extensive variety of seafood, it’s easy to see how the Kings Of Fi$h family has built such a legendary reputation.

In 2016, Time magazine placed the San Pedro Fish Market and Restaurant as fifth on the “Most Instagram Restaurants in the U.S.”, list. Thanks to their World Famous Shrimp Tray and the Guinness World Record setting annual LobsterFest, it’s safe to say these guys really know their fish.

Join us as we follow the hardships and celebrations of the Ungaro and Amalfitano families as they work though their most daunting challenge yet — continuing to run the family business without the knowledge from their founder, CEO, and family patriarch, Tommy “The Boss”Amalfitano after 54 years of him being the heart of the business.

If you’re already hooked on our newest reality series, Kings Of Fi$h: Season One, then you’ll be pleased to know Season Two is debuting next week. So, if you haven’t already familiarized yourself with the Kings Of Fi$h, here are the first five episode of KOF: Season One. We’ve also included the Kings Of Fi$h Season One finale, which will be launching Friday, March 3 at 5:00 p.m. (PST) on all of FOODBEAST’s social channels (Facebook / YouTube). However, you can see season finale here first!
