Mariscos Chente - Ceviche Mixto
I had the ceviche mixto today, and it was delicious.
The pulpo (octopus) was prepared in mostly thin slices (with some larger pieces), and it was very tender....not rubbery as it sometimes becomes.
I also got a nice taste of shrimp that I've not experienced before. After the initial burst through the outer layer, it was smooth and very sensuous, with an almost tangy flavor. Very unique for me.
They include chopped cucumber which adds a slightly crunchy texture and fresh flavor.
It was spicy, and went well with the seemingly house-made corn tortilla chips.
The green salsa they give you with the tortilla chips had a nice lime flavor to it. Very original and I enjoyed it as a condiment.

Went today (Saturday) for lunch. I had the ceviche mixto and one marlin taco - both were forgettable.
The ceviche was far too juicy - it was not spicy (the green salsa was spicier). To Jase, the cilantro was miniscule; I couldn't even taste it, but did see flakes of it. The octopus probably had been par-boiled to make it so tender - too, too tender for my taste - adore Papa Cristos'.
I can only give the marlin taco a SO WHAT - hadn't a clue I was eating marlin, or any type of fish, and it's color and texture resembled that of refried beans. Whatever cheese that had been put on it, had been melted to a char.
