Mariscos Don Vergas
Although the name isn’t exactly family-friendly (ask your Uber driver en route why), this place is great and one of the most interesting new seafood restaurants in CDMX. Focused on Sinaloa-style seafood and started in a simple stand at a nearby market, Don Vergas became a rotating pop-up before finally landing at this stand-alone space in Cuauhtémoc.
Everything on their menu tastes as fresh as if you were in a Mazatlan seafood shack, but if you have to focus on one thing here, make it the tostada embarazada that’s loaded with shrimp, octopus, crab meat, fish, and scallops. It might just be the biggest, most delicious tostada we’ve ever tried, especially when paired with a michelada or two.
