Mariscos Tocho

Mariscos Tocho is a Sonoran-style seafood restaurant that doesn’t shy away from bold flavors, and by that we mean using copious amounts of sauce. The Lynwood spot makes a delicious salsa negra that bristles with heat from crushed chiltepín, smokiness from dried chiles, plus a hint of sweetness from a secret ingredient—whatever it is, it just works. The tostada negra with large chunks of shrimp arrives drenched in the sweet-savory salsa, then gets finished with avocado and chipotle crema. Another stand out on the sprawling menu is the botana gorda,  a pile of tender shrimp and octopus sautéed with onions and more spoonfuls of that addictive salsa negra.
