Fodor's Expert Review La Guerrerense

$ Ensenada Seafood Fodor's Choice

This food-cart stall off of Ensenada's bustling Calle Primera is the place where locals get a solid helping of the region's seafood. Established in 1960, La Guerrerense has been featured on international shows like Anthony Bourdain's No Reservation. Crowds line up at all hours and ogle a small army of cooks cracking open clams, shucking oysters, and piling the freshest fish onto tostadas and into oversize clam shells. After you choose from the day's catch—shrimp, uni, clams, lobster, octopus—stand back and wait while your dish is prepared. Once it's ready, make your way through the throng of hungry patrons, and dress your plate from the selection of bottled salsas and condiments on display, which are also for sale. Most-loved is the salsa made with toasted peanuts, oil, garlic, and fresh chilies. Owned by Sabina and Luis Eduardo Oviedo, the spot is a mainstay on the Ensenada food scene, and not to be missed.
