La Concheria Restaurant

by the Lusty Napkin          

Two friends and I visited La Concheria this Tuesday for the first time.  Chef Roberto de Anda and team gave us some fun suggestions, descriptions, delivery and presentation of fresh seafood at this hidden gem of a restaurant in Ensenada.

A market style window of the fresh sea dwellers available along with the menu is part of the greeting.

La Concheria’s wine selection is a good sampling of  a handful of Valle de Guadalupe varieties.  Negra Modelo and Modelo Especial beers are also on tap.

We started our feast with Negra Modelos and Kumamoto oysters.  A few salsas, lime and hot sauce are a great beer pairing with these morsels from the ocean.

A steaming bowl of Roberto claim chowder was served with crisp bread to continue our flavor discovery.  This chowder is full of clam chunkies.

Here is the bonita fish ceviche.  My team and I prefer this style of rustic hunks of fish and veggies in our ceviche as it shows care for the flavor combos and guests.  One team member said this dish was very Vietnamese in style and flavors.

Yes, with Roberto’s help, we selected a Monte Xanic Sauvignon Blanc to add to the mix.

Next up was the octopus and fish mixed ceviche.  The pulpo was so tender that we pressed chef Roberto on how to prepare our own at home.

Fish of the day is always available at La Concheria, but, we were already full.  But, here is a grilled sampling with veggies.

The menu is limited to the day’s availability of fish so you can expect a caldo/soup, risotto, pasta and the catch of the day to add to the conchas on hand.  Roberto is bilingual and happy to prepare your dish according to your needs.

The flavors wafting from the kitchen to the street bring the attention of nosey hungers.

La Concheria is located on 1st Street/Lopez Mateos close to the Mercado Negro Fish Market at Gastelum.  Hours are 10am – 6pm. phone 52 646 178 3271   Facebook page

 

We will give La Concheria 4.5 out of 5 perfectly shucked oysters for our first visit.  Hope to get to more of the selections soon.  Gracias Roberto, Memo y Equipo La Concheria.
