La Corriente Cevichería Nais

The first entry for this blog could not have a better start point. "La corriente cevichería nais" exemplifies everything that is great about the food culture in Tijuana. From the name itself, "nais" being a play on the word nice, to the welcoming ambiance in the restaurant, this cevichería makes you feel right at home when you come through the door.  The restaurant, located on the corner of 6th street and Madero (downtown TJ), consists of a main seating area and a backside bar/lounge which comes alive at night with a mix of cumbias and electronic music. But on to why we're all here...the Food!

Well what can I say, except: Holy Moly! Be prepared to have your taste buds assaulted by flavor and texture. I started my meal with the Ahi Tuna tostada – consisting of Ahi Tuna (duh!), aioli, caramelized onions, soy and avocado sauce. The tuna was really fresh and bursting with flavor. The texture of the tuna made excellent contrast with the crispy tostada and the sauces. The onions and sauces added depth of flavor to an already awesome combination. In short, INCREDIBLE.

I followed up by ordering an assortment of tostadas:

The "Nais": spicy shrimp, red onions, cucumber and jicama!

"Red Snapper": red snapper, red onion, avocado, aioli and chili pepper.

"Guaymas":  Scallops, red onions and their own house sauce.

 

 

Another favorite was the aguachile, which consisted of spicy scallops and shrimp, covered in chili and red onion and surrounded by cucumber. This is usually a pretty big dish, but can be split up as an appetizer amongst three people, which is what we did.

Turning away for a second from the raw fish entrees, we decided to order the rice with mariscos, which turned out to be a good decision. The rice reminded me of a Japanese style fried rice but with a lot more seafood and huge chunks of fresh avocado mixed in. It was good to see that a restaurant focusing on ceviche, could so effortlessly create a dish like this and still make it come out great!

 

All in all, a (huge) dinner for three people that included about 3 drinks each, tax and tip included came out to about $30 (U.S. Dollars) per person. You can't beat that! I really enjoyed coming here and it will for sure be added to my list of places to frequent while in Tijuana and it should be added to yours as well! You will not be disappointed, everything from the food to the drinks to the customer service and the prices were spot on!

Enjoy!
