Jesse Gomez and Jose Acevedo have reinvented the wheel at Maradentro. And by wheel, we mean guacamole, since he went ahead and added crispy bits of Nueske's bacon and chunks of plump lobster—the tortilla chips are freshly fried, flaky and served warm too. Salivating yet? Well, how about with a tart tamarindo mezcal cocktail?
It's possible that Maradentro is perhaps LA's most underestimated at the moment, with their innovative-yet-still-traditional takes on Mexican coastal cuisine. Which includes options like a cioppino-like, Siete Mares-stuffed chile relleno and Oysters "Rajafellar" with chile poblano strips and queso añejo. For dessert, enjoy their Tres Leches Budino, a fluffy sponge cake topped with Oaxacan chocolate custard.
