Sinaloan/Mexican Shrimp Restaurants in Santa Monica Proper?

hey everyone - any help appreciated. My favorite restaurant in the world is Mariscos Chente in Mar Vista but its too far to get to during my lunch hour. Anything similar in Santa monica?

  1. Sadly, no. Probably the closest you can come is either going to the taco truck at Lincoln and 4th in Venice for shrimp tacos or La Playita on Lincoln. Neither are Sinaloan, but La Playita at least does have coctels.

    1. Marisco's Chente is as close as it gets. The rest of the Sinaloan, or Nayaritan places are in Inglewood, East LA, South Central, Huntington Park/South Gate, Lynwood, Gardena, etc., the next best places being in the Inglewood to South Gate strip.
