South Bay: Dia de Pesca

Our Bitter Night revelry went deep into the night.  T went home, but AF and CL stayed over.  The next morning, we went to the mall and then found ourselves at Dia de Pesca for lunch:

It'd been on my list for some time, but I just never made it happen.  Thank you, CL, for suggesting it!

The first thing you'll see when you enter Dia de Pesca is the counter where you place your order:

Once that's done, find a table either inside or outside (if the weather is nice) and wait for your food to be brought to you.

Dia de Pesca is known for its seafood options.  There were so many things on the menu that we wanted to try, but we had to fight to curb our natural tendency to over-order.  Instead, we decided on three things.

First, was the caldo de mares ($14.25):

The seafood broth was chock full of clams, mussels, octopus, shrimp, fish, crab, potatoes, carrots, and celery.  So good.  It would have been even better if the lime had been more cooperative.  (The one we got basically had no juice in it.)

The daily special was too tempting to pass up:

The enchilada with grilled sea bass was topped with mango sauce and came with a breaded halibut taco along with rice and salad.  All for just $9.50.

That mango sauce.  I just can't.

To complete the meal, we got the regular seafood burrito ($7.65):

We got to choose what seafood we wanted inside and we went with scallops:

Oh, baby.  So soft and buttery.  All burritos should be made with scallops.

I love the laid back feel of Dia de Pesca.  I especially love the food.  I just wish they accepted credit cards because the amount of cash I would need to carry to pay for everything I am curious to try would make me a walking target on the streets.
