Mariscos Chente (Centinela)

By in 11: West LA

I’m always curious about this Mexican seafood joint right next to Angel Maid Bakery. My friend got a recommendation for its ceviche.
The Chips with pureed jalapeno peppers and lime juice salsa was quite spicy but irresistable. On the menu they don’t seems to have fish ceviche. Shrimp ceviche $11. The shrimps looked a bit grey, overall very tasty, fresh chops and strong spicy hits!
Filete a la Diabla: pan fried bass with chiles mexicano sauce. The skin was crispy and even though it’s a bit too salty, it is so tasty that I can’t stop eating (but it’s very spicy, I had to take break). The chili sauce taste a bit similar to the Taiwanese hot sauce. The flavored rice and grilled veggie are both very good too. It’d have go well with beer. On the right is Garlic Shrimp, by the time this came out my tongue was numb by the fish’s spiceness. I recalled it was quite good.
DSC00539.jpgShrimp Empanada was a bit…bare…inside. ^^;; My mouth was on fire until I got a coke (ice water prolong and increase the spiceness 10 times). It was Made-in-Mexico Coca-Cola that used sugar cane instead of corn syrup, and it does taste better and less sweet! All these were shared by three people, we were so full.

    Ceviche is chopped seafood (fish, shrimp, lobster, etc) + tomatoes, onion, cucumber with chile and lime juice~ The freshness is crucial.
