A taste of Sonora in Riverside
What a surprise! We’ve discovered the most delightful restaurant right in downtown Riverside, California. We were lusting for some original Ensenada-style street Ceviche, and Google sent us to Mariscos El Tío's. Only a block from the old Fox theater and the much fancier Mission Inn, it’s a different world all together.
You may have passed by this corner hundreds of times, and never noticed the place. Once inside, you are transported to a funkier, simpler sensibility. The food there is delicious, none of the servers speaks English, and the home-made art naïf décor is full of surprises. See for yourself.
