Its pretty fortuitous that I found this place. If it was not for my girlfriend taking me here, I doubt I would have ever found it. Its in a industrial area west of the 5 on the border between National City and the Barrio. Nada written about it on the internet either.
Based on my single visit there - I have to confess that I feel I might have found a heavyweight marisconteder to German. I like the restaurant a lot better than the tired feeling German. Waitresses are super pleasant and eager to help you.
We heard the Norteno band as we rolled toward the restaurant. They really impressed me. They play friday, saturday, and sundays here.
My friend always orders the camarones al mojo de ajo, toasted garlic fried shrimp here and I wanted to give the fish tacos a go.
My pulse started to race when I first tasted the consomme which reflected the true sense of a shrimp consomme rather than the off-putting tomatoey taste of Germans passing version. Two succulent tender head on shrimp rounded out this essence of the camaron. jeez, this was good stuff.
The fish tacos - though described 'estilo ensenada' were breaded rater than beer battered. The talapia was moist and well cooked. The breading was not bad but I much prefer the light, crisp golden oregeno flaked beer batter. I was quite taken by the tangy white sauce, which was really satisfing with the fish.
I know why she orders the Mojo de Ajo - its _____ outstanding. Juicy ,butterflied shell-on shrimp with that characteristic lobsteresque snap when its perfectly cooked. Minced, golden toasted garlic with olive oil blessed. Simplicity, Beauty, Happiness. Refritos that actually tasted homemade and above average rice.
They have some rare dishes as well - like and albondigas of camaron and stuffed pineapple. If you are growing tired of German - I offer you this place for consideration. Quite confident you will leave very happy.
