Hello Again, loreeLB!
If you like authentic Mexican seafood preparations, you should check out El Bukanas in Montebello. They bill themselves as “le Catedral De Los Mariscos”. A fair self-assessment, I would say. Wonderfully fresh seafood prepared and served in the Nayarit/Sinaloa tradition. Fabulous botanas (seafood platters), grilled whole fish (pescado zarandeado), delectable smoked marlin tacos, nice beer and fresh juice selection, great service and much much more. What more can I say? How about a 3.5 – 4 lb. fresh, raw seafood platter with all the trimmings for $40?! Indeed, a religious experience that, for me, has become a ritual – particularly on Sundays.
