All the way out in East Los is Mariscos El Jato, an authentic mariscos restaurant. The Monster is the lone gringo on this afternoon as families gorge themselves on delicacies from the sea.
This is a fast paced place, the clatter of dishes, the laughing of patrons, the music pumped up high. It’s got a good spirit, a positive energy as you sit at a communal table and tear into the thick chips and tasty salsa. And you’ll get your food before your napkin hits your lap. They have this down to a science.
