If you love Mercado, you must try Maradentro! Mexican seafood has arrived on the westdie by one of my favorite chefs, Jose Acevedo. As if it isn't enough to enjoy his ultra
yummy food and cocktails at Mercado; we now have another place to call one of our favorite watering holes! With his vast knowledge of regional seafood specialties, Acevedo definitely has another winner on his hands! The restaurant, right on Wilshire and Barrington
features a beautiful outside patio and inside dining as well. Start off with the special Blood Orange Margarita by Cesar Arenas. It's one of the most refreshing drinks in town! Guacamole de Langosta ($13) is perhaps one of the most creative
dishes I have tasted. I only wish we'd ordered two! Imagine Haas avocados, serranos, red onions, cilantro, lobster, and Nueske bacon and some pretty crispy chips and there you have the most delicious guacamole on the westside! Chips and salsa
($2) with salsa brava, and salsa de molcajete are spicy, so watch out! Cilantro Lime Rice ($4) is a flavorful side dish and plenty to share. The Surf and Turf Tacos ($17) include a lobster and Filet Mignon taco, poblano chilies, avocado, and Yxta salsa brava.
Pollo Al Ajillo ($18) is a Jidori free-range chicken, chili de arbol garlic butter, cilantro lime rice, and market vegetables. Chicken is perfectly cooked, moist and tender. We can't wait to go back for more of Chef Jose's bright, rich flavors! Maradentro
