Mariscos 4 Vientos in Boyle Heights is a one-stop-shop for every mariscos craving I’ve ever had. Whether it’s cocteles, tacos dorados, or a dozen oysters with salsa verde to sweat out last night’s tequila, this place has it all. The truck’s tostadas also run the seafood gamut by offering toppings like shrimp, fish, octopus, and even imitation crab (if that’s your jam). But unlike other places that cut their fish into small chunks, Mariscos 4 Vientos finely minces its fish ceviche to create more of a seafood paste that gets slathered on the salty tostada. The tomato, onion, and cilantro really come through here, and the large slices of creamy avocado make for a rich final touch. I’m also a fan of their tostada mixta that comes with the same fish ceviche and large chunks of shrimp and octopus on top. After adding generous amounts of salt and tapatío, I like to eat this one curbside for a brief moment of uninterrupted satisfaction. Or, in some cases, regret for wearing white pants to a ceviche truck (again).
