This is what Michelin-star-worthy seafood looks like


YouTuber Óscar Mezar from La Capital visited Mazatlán and showcased the best of the cuisine from the Pearl of the Pacific.

Mexican YouTuber, Óscar Mezar, uploaded a vlog showing his culinary visit to Mazatlán, Sinaloa. The person behind La Capital, a gastronomy channel on YouTube with over 9 million subscribers, toured the best food establishments in “The Pearl of the Pacific.”

The street seafood that deserves a Michelin star according to Óscar from “La Capital” is El Toro Pesado. This cart of fresh products has over 35 years of experience and has become a mandatory stop for every visitor to this part of the Mexican coast.

The menu is short and simple. They sell shrimp (raw and cooked), octopus, and scallops. However, the freshness, quality, and simplicity highlight the flavor of each ingredient. In the video, Óscar orders a combination of all the available seafood, marinated with lemon and chiltepín chili, and crispy red onion. The taste is worthy of a Michelin star, although the guide forgot to visit this block of the city.

The cart is located on Avenida Juan Carrasco 900, in the Montuosa neighborhood. Upon arrival, you can see the cart and some tables accompanying it, under a canopy that will be your only defense against the sun. Its hours are from 10:30 in the morning to 16:30 in the afternoon, so you have a few hours to take advantage of it.

In addition to this recommendation, the YouTuber also showed the Isla de la Piedra pier, a place where fishermen unload their product and serves to buy all the fresh catch at the best price for home preparations.
