I was at Smorgasburg (Food Flea Market) this past Saturday and really couldn’t decide what to eat …plus the lines and crowds were too much for me. So I went back to Rosarito Fish Shack that I saw on my way there to the waterfront. It’s right where Williamsburg Cafe used to be. I loved that placed years ago. But now Rosarito Fish Shack is there and it stands out like a fake Disney-esque touristy restaurant. I think that looks cool.
I ordered a Bloody Mary with tequila, which I don’t think is as good as with vodka. But it does the job.
I had the Chilaquiles con Camarones (Crispy tortillas, tomato-chile de arbol salsa, garlic shrimps, two fried eggs, queso, crema $12). This plate was big. The shrimp were frickin’ huge. I tend to describe Chilaquiles as plate of soggy nachos, but these were the best soggy nachos I’ve ever had. There were still plenty of crispy and crunch to it. By far, better Chilaquiles than from Grand Morelos.
I just read the Yelp reviews for this place and it’s funny how many people hate Rosarito. I had an excellent brunch with excellent service. The plates next to me all looked awesome, with the exception of the crab cake sandwiches. I had a nice and easy experience. A lot less hectic than Smorgasburg down the street, which I did go back to meet up with my friend (I’ll post more on that soon).
