TJ - Los Angulo (maybe I'll keep sharing)

Tijuana Mexico – Los Angulo (sic) restaurant

Located on Ninoes Heroes Blvd., south of the Abraham Lincoln statue in the glorietta, west side.

The venue is a beautiful, freestanding building with a fifty-foot high, steeply pitched palapa roof.

Valet parking, and warm and welcoming hosts greet you at the door.

Enter and look out over the interior, it recedes away from you into a tranquil blue and white space with splashes of tropical orange. The experience is almost like wading into a tropical lagoon.

After you settle comfortably into the high-back wooden chairs, a look around the room will reveal several framed black & white photographs of the beach and fishing resort of Mazatlan from days gone by lining the room.

he waiters are professional, polite and eager to please.

In the afternoon, the restaurant fills up with well-dressed TJ professionals, families and ladies who lunch.

The menu is extensive, featuring the seafood styles of Mazatlan and the waiters are professional, polite and eager to please.

The fresh preparations; cocktails, ceviche, shellfish on the half shell, etc. are outstanding.

There is a huge menu of cooked items, I find the sauced entrees too heavy (a lot of cheese and/or cream sauces added to the seafood).

But, that is not what they are all about, today we had a wonderful set of entrees; Calamar Espanol (very lightly battered and fried squid with onions and maybe spinach or some other green, in a garlic/olive oil sauce).

I had Camarones (Shrimp) Sarandeado. I tried Sarandeado with fish before and was very disappointed. Dry, no taste, etc. This version was wonderful, the shrimp was butterflied and moist and delicate; the spicing added a delicate, exotic touch. The shrimp was served on a bed of rice with a beautifully cooked with a center grouping of cauliflower, broccoli, carrots and chayote.

All in all a wonderful and high quality experience.
