With locations in Downey and Pico-Rivera, Mariscos Choix is my go-to spot for Sinaloa-style mariscos. Known for its aguachiles, meaty scallops, and Asian influences, Sinaloa has a strong seafood tradition that is unique from other Mexican regions. My personal favorite here is their massive tostada de callo de hacha, also known as fresh scallop ceviche. Coming with large chunks of beautiful scallop, cucumber, red onion, avocado, and fiery chiltepin chilis, this dish is a full-body detox disguised as a seafood feast. While the scallops are silky smooth, the chiltepin packs a serious punch that always has me sweating, mouth breathing, and craving more all at once. And if that’s not enough, Mariscos Choix prepares a separate chiltepin salsa on the side that’s also seriously addicting and goes excellent on fresh scallops.
