The menu is super-simple at this humble seafood joint, with about half a dozen choices, mostly cocktails. You might get stale tortilla chips to start, but the seafood is extremely fresh, says Mealcentric. Mocaljete, a giant caldron, comes filled with all kinds of sea creatures (shrimp, octopus, abalone, and maybe scallops) in a cold tomatoey broth with cucumbers and onions, topped with thick ripe slices of avocado. For $10, it hits the spot on a hot summer evening.
