We signed our lease for another year in Echo Park. I'm pumped. This area has blessed me with tons of great eats.
Today I went to Ostioneria Colima No 2. A Mexican Seafood stand located directly next to the Alvarado freeway ramp. I know what you're thinking. And no, I did not need to call ahead for a reservation.
I ordered at the window. The wall boasts menus in both Spanish and English. My Shrimp and Octopus Cocktail was fantastic. So fresh and flavorful. The perfect hot day treat. I rounded out the meal with a Ceviche Tostada and a Sprite. Nothing like eating tentacle while listening to the soothing hum of speeding traffic. It's almost like being at a Mexican version of NASCAR or the Kentucky Derby.
Next time I'll have to try their Seven Seas Soup that looked just like a bowl of deep water happiness.
