Las Islas Marias (Los Angeles)

Ceviche ($13.99) is a great way to cleanse the palate after a hearty Thanksgiving feast. You have your lime-cooked seafood tossed with chopped tomatoes and cucumbers. Scoop it up with pieces of tostada, sprinkle over some hot sauce and you're good to go.

A large bowl of campachana ($10.50) is equally refreshing.

And when you're craving more spice, you can sink your teeth into a bowl of seafood, molcajete cora ($20). It's comes with crab legs, shrimp, oysters, clams, abalone and other delicacies of the sea. Oooh yeah~!
And when you're craving something fried, you can get the shrimp empanadas ($7.50).

The great thing about this place is that you feel like you're eating in someone's backyard patio. They even have a mariachi band to keep you company.

It's all about those molcajetes. I've got a Mexican friend who's gonna pick one up for me the next time he's in Mexico.

Hi Tony, It was a tad spicy, but at the right amount. I was sniffling and smiling the whole time.
