Puerto Nuevo Style Lobster - North of the border

  • 4

Looking for authentic Puerto Nuevo Style Lobster, as close to the real thing without the trip across the border. I'm looking for the flash-fried lobster, melted butter, homemade chewy tortillas. Please... where can I find this?

  1. Ortega's in Hillcrest on University between 1st and 2nd.

    1. My husband swears by the best tail in town in old town. Great baja lobster plate.

        Do you mean Rockin' Baja Lobster? I went just once and was disappointed.

        Anyone remember Newport Annie's in Mission Beach (where Guava Beach is now)? That place was great.

        I think Ortega's in Hillcrest is your best bet on this side of the border.

          Dang...I remember Newport Annie's and it is sorely missed.
