Mariscos La Playa

While it’s always thrilling to be chosen as best, it’s important to mention that El Parasol is a New Mexican restaurant. This take-out place on Cerrillos Road is the sister restaurant of the beloved El Paragua and El Parasol restaurants in Española. And though there are some Mexican hints on the menu, the food served here is distinctly, deliciously native to northern New Mexico: green chile cheeseburgers, breakfast burritos, Frito pies, chile cheese fries. El Parasol is one of the restaurants of which we are most proud. Of course, we’re also proud of Mariscos La Playa, which embodies all the things we love about lindo Mexico. We’re talking octopus cocktail, camarones al mojo de ajo, mojarra frita, albondigas de camaron. The interior is as colorful as a piñata and as welcoming as a frosty margarita. This Mexican seafood restaurant makes us feel like we’re on our honeymoon (you know, the first one) all over again!
