There’s an old school jukebox, there’s a painting of Jesus, there’s two televisions blaring different channels simultaneously, and there is a giant marlin hanging on the wall. This is Jesse’s Camarones Restaurant. It is awesome.
A cash only joint on West Adams, this is an old school seafood haven with a limited but fantastic menu of delights.
The Monster takes a trip over for lunch and his head begins to swim in the sea of crustacean possibilities.
Should he order camarones a la diabla? Maybe a tostada mixta? Campechanas de camaron, pulpo y abulon? Hibiscus flower agua fresca?
So, the call is a small shrimp cocktail, the tostada ceviche mixta and a fried potato taco.
The food, like atmosphere, just kills it. Fresh shrimp, delicious ceviche, a fried taco wonder.
All that food, yea it was less than $10. Hard to beat amigos.
Why go? The first sentence of the review sold you.
