Sergio Penuelas has left Mariscos Chente

I received a tip today from Maricos Chente supporter WestSideGal, that Sergio Penuelas has left Mariscos Chente on Centinela, permanently.

I was able to reach him and he confirmed this news. He is currently cooking at the Mariscos Chente at 10020 Inglewood Ave, Inglewood CA 90304. The founder of the restaurant, Vincente Cossio had recently took over the kitchen at the Inglewood location due to the poor performance of the cooks that were working there. I originally learned about Sergio when he was cooking at the Inglewood restaurant, while the family waited for the Mar Vista location to clear health inspection. The place had been closed due to a kitchen fire in 2008.

Sergio is going to be there Thursday through Sunday, when he's not there, Vincente is also a greta cook and the kitchen has been solid there since he took over.

As for the Mar Vista location, can't vouch for the kitchen anymore. Westsidegal said he hadn't been there for over a week and the food wasn't any good, and it was nothing like Sergio's cooking at all.

So, I guess I'm going to Inglewood from now on,
