Long time browser, first time writer: my boyfriend's birthday is coming up, and he really likes the Caldo de 7 Mares at Costa Azul in Burbank, but I suspect there may be better soups out there. I mean, the chances that Burbank of all places would have the best Mexican seafood soup in LA are pretty low, right? Must have: lots of yummy fresh sea critters and a broth that isn't just water+hot sauce. Nice ambiance is a plus but not necessary. We're around Echo Park but willing to travel a bit.
