Mariscos Chente

Twice in the past month Larry and I have eaten at Mariscos Chente. I read about it in the L.A. Times. The restaurant is located at 4532 So. Centinela Ave., Mar Vista. This is a stretch of Centinela that I frequent quite often. We go to Paco's Tacos, up the block, across the street....close to Hotcakes Bakery, where they make divine, multi-colored macaroons. Also on this street is Taqueria Sanchez (excellent) and the Angel Maid Bakery where we ALWAYS buy our creampuffs!

The first time we ate at Mariscos Chente was for dinner on a Saturday night, after an art opening. The place was crowded, but we only waited a few minutes for a table. This gave us a chance to look around and see what others were eating. Lots of whole fish, served family style with vegies and other acoutrements surrounding the fish. People were also ordering huge plates of fresh ceviche. Everything looked extremely tasty.


The second time we ate here was for a quick lunch. We ordered ceviche and split it. It was a bit spicy for our tastes, but really good.

We'll definitely visit Mariscos Chente again.
