Mariscos Chihuahua

As you walk towards the door of the restaurant, you immediately get the sweet smell of cooking shrimp. Chips, crackers, limes, and salsa are provided when you sit down. The restaurant is very clean and the staff welcoming and attentive. The menu conveys that this is a serious place for seafood: ceviche, oysters, shrimp, octopus, fish, various seafood cocktails, and seafood stews.

I ordered camarones rellenos (shrimp stuffed with a creamy white cheese, wrapped in bacon, and then fried). The entree came with rice, salad, and French fries, and I ordered a horchata to drink. The eight shrimp were cooked perfectly and needed just a squirt of fresh lime juice to really set them off. I would have liked the salad a little more if it had ripe instead of pink tomatoes. The serving size left me with no room for dessert.

There were several families sharing large platters of raw oysters, seafood platters, and servings of ceviche. The restaurant is a must do when you crave serious seafood during your visit to Tucson.

Note the bed of French fries below the garlic-veiled shrimp.  By the time you've eaten through the shrimp, you've got a whole plate of garlic flavored French fries to munch:  delicious!

The preferred condiment for nearly everything on the menu:  a squeeze of bright-flavored Mexican lime

For those who like four-alarm food, every table is equipped with several bottles of ultra-hot sauce.

The dining room wall puts you in the mood to eat seafood.

It was this gargantuan sign on the outside wall that lured us into Mariscos Chihuahua. As a general rule, giant pictures of food on the outside of restaurants signal good food inside.
