Mariscos Meños

One day at the barber shop in Rosarito Beach, Señor Sabrosisimo asked the barber where he liked to eat seafood.  The barber said "it's not in the tourist zone".  Señor S. said "Great, how do I get there?"

Mariscos Meños is a small, family-run restaurant on the east side of the toll road in Rosarito Beach.  It is in a residential neighborhood, just off of a commercial street.  The seafood is excellent and the prices are low.  Chef and owner Manuel Meños used to work at the Rosarito Beach Hotel and has several awards from his time there. 

One of Señor Sabrosisimo's favorite meals here is Mojarra Reina, a whole fried tilapia, with sides and delicious Siete Mares soup starter, all for $50 pesos (about $4 USD).  Other dishes Señora Adora and other Explorers have tried have also been excellent.  The place is small, clean and nicely decorated.  Most days it is crowded and there can be a wait since Chef Meños prepares everything to order.

Hours: Open for breakfast and lunch

Price: $ - very reasonable

 Less than 100 feet from the imposing and rusting US border fence in Tecate is a hotel and meeting complex called Santuario Diegueño.  Señor Sabrosisimo recently attended a meeting there at their signature restaurant, Asao.  The experience was excellent.
