Mariscos Chente


You can walk here from the airport, and in a pinch I would do just that. Before moving to Los Angeles, it used to be a brilliant first stop, as it is conveniently located from the car rental agencies. They invite you to bring your own beer, and that really is the perfect way to enjoy seafood and get yourself into the Nayarit beach mentality.

Nayarit is a coastal state between Jalisco and Sinaloa and is best known for its delicious seafood. The Nayarit-style seafood selection here is on many city best lists; worth coming to even when your origin is farther than LAX. This brilliantly fresh aguachile (above) was thoroughly spicy and tart, perfect.

This mojarra frita (above) seemed like it was caught just before we arrived. Squirt some lime. Are we on the beach?

Green sauce is housemade and great, but ask for their wonderful pico de gallo (below) if it goes well with your orders, or even just to snack on intermittently if you need some spice relief.

Once the aguachile is devoured.
