What should I order at Mariscos Chente?

  1. Camarones Pimiente... heads on or heads off.

    Those are the yummy pepper shrimp in a sort of buttery sauce with rice.

    1. Hi vinosnob,

      Depends on how many people you have and if you like spicy food or not, but, you might consider:

      * Pescado Zarandeado (Open-Grilled Snook) - It's arguably their best dish. Delicious, mouth-watering fish (that you can order per Kilogram, but the smallest one could feed 2 - 3 people comfortably if you order another dish).

      * Camarones Borrechos (Shrimp Sauteed with Tequila, Cilantro, Garlic and Butter) - Simply delicious.

      You can do a search on the boards and find a few long threads on everyone's favorites; hopefully that'll help as well. :) Enjoy!

      1. re: exilekiss

        the smallest pz is normally one kilo.
        have to admit that i have no problem finishing one off by myself.
        granted i don't eat the chips. . . .

      2. The Pescado Zarandeado is one of the best dishes I've ever had.

        1. Any of the shrimp dishes (be aware that the aguachile is pretty powerful stuff and I personally did not enjoy it) or the pescado zarandeado or the pescado a la plancha. And a cubeta of beer.

          1. Love the Pulpo and Camaron Coctel...
