    A Mexican Paradise


    What results from baja mexican cuisine fusing with the ocean? A beachy, cool, family-owned gem, Tj Oyster Bar.
    If it's not the ice-cold michelada (beer with limes and a chili-dusted rim) that sparks up your palate, then their homemade horchata and jamaica aguas frescas will definitely set the authentic Mexican ambiance. Ranging from octopus and shrimp caldos to smoked tuna and fish tacos and quesadillas, grilled, fried or fresh, you can get almost any type of seafood, any way you like.


    My favorite? Fish ceviche tostada-
    A light and crunchy tostada topped with creamy aioli, white fish drenched in lime, and pico de gallo... sounds simple, but it's exquisitely outstanding!

    Recommendation: Ask the server for their homemade red salsa, extra aioli and limes to top off your tostada. Take a sip of your refreshing michelada, and then, you'll be on your way to foodporn heaven...
