Nice pleace for seafood May 27, 2010
Its not a 5 star restaurant, its just a corner place where you can find high quality of seafood.

Love the clams, the ceviche and octopus on olive sauce !

This place is always crowed, I would recomend to go there close to 3 pm, more table are availabe, and since they close past 3, it´s a good chance to get more food for the same price ;p
If you decide to start with clams,…
If you already tasted the ceviche,…
Clasic ceviche & sea food

Best clams in town at "El Rincon de Bigote" Dec 29, 2009
Although there are many seafood places in town, not many serve clams and the ones which serve it are not the most popular ones.

One I was with a friend and she recommended to go to this small restaurant. I was just looking for a cebiche, but for starter she told me to order the white big shells. They were clams and were delicious!

"Choritos a la chalaca" is a very common dish here, which is about fresh mussels with chopped onions, tomato and spicy pepper. Here they serve the clams this way and are absolutely great! So fresh and tasty. Also they cover them with a mushroom mix which is very delicious. The clams are very big and also cheap!

So, when Shawn was in town I thought it would be a good idea to take him there. We ended up going there twice, just for the clams, but we also find the silverfish rolls. Too good!!!! I've tried the cebiche here which is ok, but nothing outrageous. Portion was big though.

Nevermind, I'll always find a reason to come back here, maybe just the clams and the silverfish. After being reviewed by a famous chef, this place is always crowded, but the wait is totally worth it. If you are not picky you can do as I did and take a sit next to the bar.

The only thing I didn't like that much was that the owner, the guy with a bigote (mustache) is always hurrying people, so there would be more free tables and place for new customers... but these clams are too good to let that bother me :P

I think I am the "she" in this review.... lol... but the funny thing is that a TB recommended me that place. It is so weird when someone who is not from your country, tell you about great places in your country which you didnt know !!!!!!!
