Mariscos los arcos on Victory in van nuys

Went for lunch yesterday to Mariscos Los Arcos.

Lunch comes with soup - soup tastes like campbell's vegetarian vegetable. It's included, it's free, it's what it is.

One of us had the huachinango ranchera (they also have verucruzana). Tasty, lots of mushrooms which surprized me. Rice was good. Fish not too dry - a win.

The other, the coctel campechana. This was the second most expensive thing on the menu at $12.99. There was a smaller version but we didn't see it on the menu. The campechana was big enough for two, easily. The broth could have been tangier for me. But this is usually served mild and one can add hot sauce.

There are fish tacos, 4 or 5 mojarra dishes (they use tilapia for the mojarra) some fileted dishes, with fish on the grill or sauced, full bar, nice selection of beers and soft drinks.

The most expensive thing on the menu, a dozen oysters on the half shell at about $14. This works out to under $1.20 an oyster which isn't too bad. The oysters seemed very fresh (at least the few in the campechana coctel). So if you're in the valley and looking for a place for fresh oysters and a beer, this might be the place. 1/2 dozen at $8.

The hours seemed to indicate it was open late-ish but I don't remember. Also, some antojitos on the menu but can't remember what exactly. Tortillas are not handmade, sorry. And not too far from EL Jerezano if you all know where that is.
